About me

My name is Nic Higham and I am a male counsellor based in Leicester, UK, offering counselling to both men and women. I am the author of the non-dual mindfulness book ‘Living The Life That You Are: Finding Wholeness When You Feel Lost, Isolated and Afraid’.

I provide a caring space in which you can have a private conversation to reflect on and find possible solutions to your challenges. My areas of interest include: anxiety (in its many forms, including existential anxiety and social anxiety), depression, relationships, mental health, mindfulness, spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and non-duality. My work is influenced by various healing, therapy and psychology modalities.

I am based at a Leicester counselling centre called ‘Leicester Centre for Psychodymanic Counselling’. I

In my private counselling practice, I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches and offer bespoke sessions for each client meaning the work we do evolves accordingly with the unique experience of each person.

I have over ten years of experience working and volunteering for the National Health Service (NHS) in mental health inpatient care, as a mindfulness tutor at a mental health recovery college and within a therapeutic community.

My writing was featured in ‘Wisdom Without Dogma: Voices From the Edge of the Spiritual Revolution’. I have had various articles published in ‘Mental Health Practice’, a Royal College of Nursing journal, and ‘British Journal of Healthcare Assistants’.
