Helen Higginson (Acapella Therapy) MBACP
Struggling with depression? Feeling stressed? Panicky? Anxious?
Counselling can help.
I have been working as a counsellor for 12 years And I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I am a person centred therapist focusing on an individual's self worth and values. Being valued as a person, without being judged, can help an individual to accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves.
I am in private practice working with adults, children and young people and also work in local schools with children and young people. I have also worked for Relate Leicester in schools across the county.
I have worked with clients on many issues such as anxiety, divorce, separation, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement and self harm. No issue is too small. I offer a safe, warm, non judgemental and confidential environment to encourage a place where clients can re-balance their inner self and improve their emotional well being.
i also offer mentoring for children and young people, please contact me further details.
