My name is Nic Higham, I’m a qualified counsellor based in Leicester, UK. I have a private practice at Leicester Centre for Psychodynamic Counselling and in Wigston, and also offer online counselling. You are very welcome to contact me about affordable counselling (also known as therapy).

Talking about your difficulties with a trained counsellor who is attentive and free of judgement, can enable you to understand who you really are and how you relate to those in your life. Counselling can give you new insights to help you to live your life in a way that is most meaningful and fulfilling to you.

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, the non-dual perspective, spiritual awakening, enlightenment, non-duality and Nisarga Yoga. My work is influenced by various healing, therapy, psychology, and spiritual modalities.

Living the Life That You Are: Finding Wholeness When You Feel Lost, Isolated, and Afraid

by Nic Higham

Published by Non-Duality Press / New Harbinger

Do you feel lonely, disconnected, or incomplete? Are you afraid that you’ll never be fulfilled unless you can be, have, or do more? When you feel inadequate and alone, the world can seem like an unfamiliar, confusing, and scary place. You may even avoid it out of fear of being criticized, misunderstood, or uncomfortable—which can lead to even more isolation and loneliness. This book can help you break this painful cycle and find peace, confidence, and fulfillment, right here and now.

In this non-duality book, Nic Higham examines the modern-day dilemma of loneliness, revealing that its root cause is our belief that we’re all separate individuals bound by personal limitations. Using radical mindfulness and the practical tools in this enlightening guide, you’ll learn to observe, acknowledge, and question your fears and beliefs—allowing your sense of being lost and alone to give way to a loving state of connection with all.

An best seller (depression category 8th July 2018)
