Nikolas has been working as a qualified psychotherapist for 15 years. His qualifications include a BA in Psychology (1993), an MA in Counselling (1997) and an advanced clinical Diploma in Group Analytic Psychotherapy (2001). Through his work Nikolas has developed an extensive experience of working with various adult client groups in mental health and addictions offering both individual and group treatment. In addition, he has offered clinical supervision and training to clinical staff and students for the last 12 years. Another important aspect of his professional experience for the last 8 years is in management and clinical development in mental health services.
Ten years ago Nikolas became more conscious of the connection with Spirit and his psychic awareness and he started practising yoga which intensified his awareness of the healing qualities of energy. So, in parallel to his psychotherapeutic work he qualified to Master's level in Usui Reiki (2006) and in Angelic Reiki (2008). He also completed the basic teacher's training in Merkabah and the Diploma as a Hypnotherapy practitioner (2012). Over a period of several years Nikolas was able to develop and expand his psychic abilities through attending the School of Intuition and Healing.
During the last three years Nikolas has divided his working life between his role as a part-time NHS group analytic psychotherapist/deputy manager and the role of psychic and energy healing practitioner in his private practice. As a result Nikolas has been able to find common areas between talking and energy therapies that have influenced both his psychotherapeutic and energy healing practice.
