About me

Dan Higgs, MBACP (Accred), Dip Couns, BSc (Hons)

I specialise in supporting children and young people aged 10-18 who are struggling with low mood, poor self-esteem, identity issues, friendships, anxiety, panic attacks, parental separation, grief, self-harming or suicidal thoughts.  The aim is to understand and explore what is troubling them, to find their voice and to improve their mood and their relationships.

I gained my post-graduate qualification as a counsellor and 2021 and qualified as a counsellor dealing with young persons (10-18) in 2022.  I have worked as a counsellor in a young people's counselling service, a trauma-focused charity and I also have my private practice working with children, young people and adults.


I offer a safe and relaxing environment for clients to explore whatever issues they may have. Each person’s experience of therapy is personal and I like to provide a down-to-earth, forward-thinking and solution-focused environment where I recognise that it is the relationship between the client and counsellor that is of the utmost importance.

 

I'm an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am bound by their code of ethics.  I am also a member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online

My Approach

Integrative & Holistic

As an integrative counsellor, I am influenced by various approaches that inform my work.  This means that I recognise that all clients have unique life experiences and that one approach does not fit all.  I draw on different theoretical approaches that influence how I work with you, depending on your needs.  

 

In particular, I recognise that it can be helpful to look at past experiences to understand current difficulties in relationships.  I am a thoroughly modern counsellor and am dedicated to providing counselling in a straightforward, non-judgmental and relaxed setting.
