Nic Higham is a nonduality author, certified counsellor and life coach. Based in Leicester, UK, he offers face-to-face and online sessions working as a nondual therapist. Nic’s work is guided by over 15 years of immersion in the teaching of Nisargadatta Maharaj, and professional training therapeutic modalities, combined with a deep knowing of nondual awareness. His work is influenced by Nondual Therapy, Psychotherapy, Somatic Inquiry, Yoga Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based Self-Inquiry, Psycho-spiritual counselling and Ayurvedic Psychology. Nic does not regard himself as a spiritual teacher or guru. He advocates no method or spiritual or religious system but is influenced by the key principles of ‘Nisarga Yoga’ as presented in Nisargadatta’s book ‘I Am That’.
He has over ten years of experience working for the NHS in mental health inpatient care and therapy services and has worked as a mindfulness tutor at an NHS recovery college in Leicester. He has previously worked for social justice charity leading a number of mental health service improvement schemes designed to enhance the lives and autonomy of marginalized social groups.
For many years, Nic has been actively involved in communicating the message of non-duality through organising and delivering satsang and courses, producing popular podcasts, blogging, and managing social networking platforms. He is the founder of the first nondual therapy directory, a pool of counsellors, psychotherapists and inquiry facilitators influenced by the wisdom of nonduality.
Nic’s first book was ‘Living the Life That You Are: Finding Wholeness When You Feel Lost, Isolated, and Afraid’ which was published by Nonduality Press in 2018. He is currently editing a book of unpublished talks by Nisargadatta Maharaj which is due to be published in 2010.
