About Janet Higgins Counselling
I am based at Bridge House and have been working in both health & educational settings since 1989.I am a member of the BACP.
It offers a counselling and homeopathy service to both adults & young people and couples in a confidential setting which is within easy access of Bolton town centre, just off Chorley New Road (opposite Bolton School).
Many of us experience times in our lives when we feel under pressure and find it hard to cope, either as a person who has mental, emotional or physical health problems or as a carer.Sometimes we need the support and understanding of someone who can offer another perspective, helping us to see a fresh insight, and clearer view.
Here at Bridge House,I offer a variety of counselling approaches including:
CBT-Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Person- centered Therapy
Packages of care include:
couples counseling £50
Individual therapy £45
Commissioning for Independent Organisations.
I offer flexible appointments & concessions are available subject to individual circumstances.
