AleX Higgins Academy in partnership with Natasha Lewis Counselling provides short-term or long-term Counselling for young people and adults.

AleX Higgins Academy in partnership with Natasha Lewis Counselling provides short-term or long-term Counselling for young people and adults.

Our Counselling is for anyone who feels that they are struggling with emotional distress. Our Counsellor provides clients with a space where they can express their thoughts and feelings in a safe and nonjudgemental environment.

Our approach is to build a good relationship with our clients and provide them with a safe, warm, and confidential environment. In this environment, they can learn to grow through processing their thoughts and feelings to gain insight into understanding themselves, others, and the world around them.

Our Counselling is delivered integratively using several counselling approaches (Person-centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential Counselling) to suit the needs of each individual client.

Short term (6 – 12 sessions) or long term Counselling

Depending on the assessment and the client’s goals and needs, each client will be provided with a weekly 50-minute counselling session using the integrative counselling approach which is led by the holistic needs of the client.

Single Counselling Session

A single session is similar to an initial assessment in that it is a one-off counselling session which can provide a space for someone to talk and explore an unexpected problem or concern.
