A Chat with Nikaos Counseling Colorado
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Nikaos is a Greek word for victorious. I offer my clients, through my skills and training, the chance to change the narrative of their life into one that they are proud of and that shows them victorious over an area of their life that has been a place of discouragement. EMDR trained by EMDRIA.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? _ I enjoy seeing others succeed. I have lead several support groups as a volunteer, but saw the deeper pain that many people carry and wanted to help be there for those individuals in a professional and flexible way. Private practice counseling was that way._
What do you love most about your job? Seeing smiles, of course. The aha moments. I am very psycho-educational in my approach. I feel that helping clients put words to their experiences gives them a way to understand those experiences and then process through them with greater power and ownership.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? In a situation of needing to be heard within her family, we played a Gestalt technique with roles changed and when it played out, she said, "Oh, that is all it takes to get my needs met!"
