Following a career break to raise a family, she retrained as a counsellor and homeopath. Currently, Janet runs her own private homeopathy clinic & works as a private counsellor for counselling2gether and Janethigginscounselling @ Bridge House, and has volunteered as a counsellor @ MhIST.
From a medical background in Speech & language therapy & homeopathy, Janet is suitably experienced in the understanding of a wide range of medical issues & the drugs used to manage these.
