Jenifer Higgins MA (Counselling) MBACP, CPC Reg.
I have been helping local people with stress, health, personal and relationship problems for over 20 years including 8 years in GP surgeries. I specialise in stress, anxiety, depression, building self-worth and confidence following setbacks (divorce, bullying, bereavement, family rifts, abuse, problems at work etc), improving relationships, problem solving, creativity etc.
I offer a free first 20 minute appointment and my usual fee is £40 per hour with concessions (for new mums, students, OAPs and service personnel and their families).
My approach is humanistic drawing from a variety of approaches (CBT/REBT, person centred, existential, psychodynamic). Please contact me direct on mobile: 07768 377561 or visit my website: www.jhcounselling.co.uk
The first sessions are usually about exploring a current crisis or any confusion or unhappiness that a client may struggle with. The aims of further sessions may include healing the past, improving confidence, communication and relationships, solving problems, changing unwanted behaviour, building on strengths and creating a Life they love according to their nature. I draw from a variety of approaches: person centred, transpersonal, existential, CBT/REBT, psychodynamic with a holistic perspective (Mind, Body, Spirit).
I may use practical exercises e.g. anger & stress management, assertiveness, self-esteem, confidence & self-awareness exercises to help people feel more relaxed and in control. The Rewind Technique safely reduces the impact of traumatic events.
I also offer a separate therapy - The Radiance Technique (Authentic Reiki) a simple but powerful relaxation & meditation practice & have studied to the Third Degree (Authorised Instructor). As well as seeing people of all ages (children with an adult) I also do workshops and give talks. I hold an enhanced CRB certificate.
I offer flexible appointment times including some evenings & Saturdays. I also work at Worcester Natural Therapy Centre, 36 The Tything, Worcester, WR1 1JL.
