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.

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’.
