My name is Nicole. I hold a Graduate Diploma in Integrated Psychotherapy and I am currently completing my Bachelor of Psychological Studies at Flinders University. I believe that as human beings we are made up of emotional, psychological and biological needs. As an integrated therapist I view the client with all this in mind and can integrate multiple proven models of therapy to help meet your needs. I am trained in multiple models of therapy including trauma, grief, psycho-dynamic, Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I have experience with children, individuals, couples and family units. My heart is to help my clients on their journey through past hurts, current struggles and personal conflict to discover their inherent worth, their strength and to restore relationships. I use proven therapy methods and techniques to help my clients improve their lives.
Counselling can be helpful when we are facing the challenges of life. We have all faced a time when there is a specific issue or event, relationship difficulty, family conflict, or an area of life that is not satisfying.
Many individuals, couples and families find relief, hope and strength through the support that counselling provides. Counselling will help you to find alternative ways to deal with the difficulties by looking at things from a new perspective and empowering individuals to take charge again.
Psychotherapy is ideal for a deeper exploration of a persons life and their experiences. Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, it usually takes place over a longer period of time and is based on regular personal interaction between psychotherapist and client to help change behaviours and overcome problems in a more productive way. The aim is to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health, to resolve troublesome behaviours, irrational beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions and to improve relationships and social skills.
As human beings we are all shaped by the experiences we have had in life and as such we develop patterns of behaviours and thoughts. These will go on to shape the way that we perceive and respond to the world around us. Some of these behavioural responses will propel us into success, and in some instances they can keep us from living our best life. Through deeper exploration of who we are and how we are interacting with the world around us we can release the past burdens that are keeping us from moving forward. Psychotherapy allows individual’s to come to new understandings, learn new behavioural responses and have profound shifts that result in satisfying outcomes.
