"Unintentionally we get in our own way… "It's all about getting out of your own way and letting your body do what it's perfectly capable of doing already." ~ Nick Wignall

Nick is a clinical psychologist, writer, teacher, and podcaster. Everything he write about comes down to one big principle: Emotional health comes from good habits, not just nice ideas. In the same way that the body relies on healthy habits and exercise to stay fit and strong, emotional health depends on good habits of mind. It’s popular to talk about emotional intelligence but what Nick is really interested in is emotional fitness.

Nick did his doctoral training in clinical psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Prior to that, Nick earned his Master’s in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Dallas.

He is board certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology, a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, as well as a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.
