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 also work in Hatton, Warwickshire. Please enquire for details.
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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
