Nikolai Pavlov, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), ACBS Peer-reviewed ACT trainer and Certified Trauma Professional with over 10 years of experience working with adults.
I work with people who struggle with the consequences of traumatic experiences, acute stress and a 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 for themselves and their struggles.

I help clients increase psychological flexibility and quality of life with evidence-based treatments like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-focused therapy (CFT). My background also includes long-term training in Gestalt-therapy and Somatic psychotherapy Hakomi and specific trauma treatment training.
