My name is Nicole Setty Koukou . My passion is to guide and help all Bodies to reclaim inner trust and inner freedom by getting curious about the way the body responds- there is no separation between the mind and the body - they affect each other.
Originally from the UK, I am a teacher, facilitator and therapist .I have developed

I moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2005 with my family.
I have a private practice working in somatic therapy, as an "Unlicensed Psychotherapist" in the state of Colorado.

I have facilitated workshops on Managing Anxiety and Self –Compassion, using embodiment practices . As an End of Life Doula, I have co-facilitated Grief rituals with the Conscious Dying Institute.
