– Relationship issues
– Grief and loss
– Work stress
– Low self-esteem
– Emotion regulation issues
Nicole takes on a warm and non-judgmental approach to help her clients feel safe, supported, and understood. She recognises the importance of connection between a client and psychologist and strives to build an open therapeutic relationship based on trust and transparency. She is devoted to supporting her clients as they develop self-awareness and self-acceptance. Nicole has a deep understanding of how experiences from our past can influence the emotions, behaviours, thoughts, and relationships we experience today. She is dedicated to helping her clients understand their past experiences and uses this gained awareness to understand their emotions, thoughts and behaviours to further develop their problem-solving skills and coping strategies.
Nicole utilises a range of evidence-based approaches and interventions tailored to the individual needs and goals of her clients. These primarily include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). Nicole is an Associate Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and regularly attends their continuing professional development courses.
Outside of work, Nicole loves playing soccer, spending time with her family and two-year-old border collie, reading and playing video games.
