Meet nikolai pavlov
Nikolai Pavlov, Therapist in Training
I work with people who struggle with the consequences traumatic experiences, acute stress and variety of problems that come with immigration, like loss of status, social support, self and professional identity. I help people learn how to deal with their inner critic and develop compassion to themselves and their struggles. My clients tell me that I am a safe and supportive therapist who helps them feel more secure and find contact with resources to live a full and meaningful life.
I am a compassionate and collaborative therapist in training at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto (GIT), a recognized training and educational program with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I maintain regular and confidential supervision with an advanced clinician (Registered Psychotherapist).
I have been working as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in my homeland Russia since 2009 with adults until my family landed in Canada in December 2017. Now, I am doing a bridging program with GIT to meet requirements for CRPO registration. I am trained in a variety of approaches including Gestalt-therapy, Somatic psychotherapy Hakomi, Compassion-focused therapy and specific trauma treatment trainings. Peer-reviewed trainer in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
