Crawley, West Sussex
Counselling can provide you with a greater degree of self-awareness, understanding of yourself and others. It can help to improve self – esteem, confidence and improve your sense of choice. At various stages in our lives, we can feel overwhelmed, stressed and anxious. When experiencing these emotions, Counselling can help us to address these issues.
Throughout the counselling sessions, I support and guide my clients towards achieving their goals and equip them with more mental and emotional skills so that they can see themselves, others and life with more clarity and from many different perspectives.
Suffering from anxiety can be extremely disruptive to everyday life and can reveal itself it many different ways. Counselling can help put your issues into perspective.
Grieving can make us feel a mix of emotions. Seeing a professional counsellor can help you to understand the natural process you are going through.
LOW SELF ESTEEM
It can be difficult to like or even love ourselves. How we value ourselves in the world is very important to our overall wellbeing and how those around us respond to our presence.
Counselling can also help you with…
Counselling can help us feel grounded in an ever-changing world and help us to accept what we can and cannot control.

MEET YOUR THERAPIST
BRETT HIGGINSON, MBCAP, Ad Prof Dip PC
Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor
My name is Brett Higginson Ad Prof Dip PC and a registered member of the BACP. I am a fully qualified and insured psychotherapeutic counsellor, I finished my training in 2013 and have been working ever since.
Other qualifications I hold are diplomas in Hypnotherapy and mental health awareness.
I am an ethical practitioner who is able to offer an integrative approach that brings together different elements of specific therapies, as I believe that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. I offer a warm, safe and confidential environment where I can work with individuals and couples over a short or long period of time to help them bring about effective change and enhance their wellbeing.
Along with my private clients, I worked last year with adolescents with mental health issues and I currently work as a volunteer counsellor at the Olive Tree in Crawley, helping those with cancer-related issues and their families.
dip.couns.mncs (accred) Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
My name is Nicola Hare dip.couns.mncs(accred). I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor specialising in anxiety coping mechanisms and reduction. I also work with a variety of presenting issues with individuals and couples over 18 from all backgrounds. This includes work with the LGBTQ+ community, specifically supporting parents of children who are struggling or self-harming and fall under this umbrella.
I use bodywork and creativity for clients who have experienced trauma at a young age or who find it difficult to put their feelings into words. This helps to access and process early, pre-memory trauma.
My main modality of psychotherapy is Transactional Analysis which offers a wealth of different ways we can work effectively together with your presenting issue.
I have worked as a volunteer with West Sussex Carers Support and in bereavement counselling with St. Wilfrid Hospice.
