Nicole is a Clinical Psychologist who has worked in both private and public mental health settings across her psychology career. She has particular interest and experience in working with individuals who are experiencing difficulties with depression, anxiety, trauma, physical health issues, grief, and adjustment.
Her specialty area is in work with parents and infants during the perinatal period, which can be a time of both joy and significant challenge. Therapy may focus on a range of issues which can arise at this time, including perinatal depression and anxiety, perinatal loss, adjustment to parenting, trauma, and the development of strong attachment relationships. The work may focus on adjustment to this important life change, through to mental health difficulties which may arise and impact.
Nicole works closely with each of her clients to develop a clear understanding of their current strengths and difficulties. Goals of therapy are then made collaboratively. She works primarily within the frameworks of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Attachment based approaches as appropriate to the individual that she is working with.
Nicole is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (AHPRA no. PSY0001611037). She is a Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), a registered supervisor, and an accredited Medical clinical psychology service provider.
Parents are very welcome to bring their babies along to sessions.
