Nick is in demand for his capacity to shift people out of unhealthy and unhelpful thinking and into a proactive and empowered way of living.

Professional modalities:

Qualified in the following range of therapeutic modalities, Nick employs each according to his client’s individual needs: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Counselling, Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Psycho education and cognitive re-training are a big part of Nick’s work which is underpinned by both Buddhist and Stoic philosophies.

Who Nick works with:

Many of us get overwhelmed and then feel trapped, afraid and unable to solve the problems we are all faced with. Nick works with his clients by providing them with the tools, resources and freedom they need to feel in control of their lives again.

Nick’s clients often present with one or more of the following symptoms: feelings of anxiety, depression, agitation, a sense of being overwhelmed or stuck, feeling highly strung or unable to switch off, sleep deprivation, anger, and panic attacks.

The Keys to Sustainable Happiness & Health

According to the World Health Organisation, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Nick has found that guests of Chiva Som come mainly to focus on their physical health; to train their bodies and eat well, which is great, but in doing so, many are neglecting their mental health.

The term ‘mental health’ relates to ‘the condition of one’s psychological and emotional wellbeing’, and with the mind being the driver behind our feelings, habits and behaviours, it makes sense to include mental health training when trying to regain and maintain optimal, overall health.
