Stress – Nicole Wimmer

Nicole Wimmer     Quals: B Sc (Psych), MA (Psych), PG Cert Mgmt, Grad Dip Safety Science, MAPS.

Stress: Work stress not only impacts your work life (and performance) but also affects your enjoyment of social activities, ability to function well in your family, engagement in fulfilling personal relationships, focus on your study, ability to manage your weight and general health, and sleep quality. Being able to manage this component of our lives is a critical factor in maintaining psychological wellbeing.

Work stress is not necessarily caused by negative workplaces or bad bosses (and sometimes it is). What is important is how it impacts on YOU and what YOU can do about it. How you manage it is something you have choice about but may not know where to start. Your situation may seem overwhelming and everything may seem like it is falling apart. Getting some clarity and perspective on what can change and developing strategies and skills to do this can have a dramatic effect on the quality of your life.

Counselling Approach: Nicole has a relaxed and engaging approach to therapy, and draws on a variety of evidence-based approaches to individually tailor a plan to suit each client. Her therapeutic orientation is a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

Fees:   Usually $180/hr and inital appointments $220 hr. Medicare and health rebates may apply.  Evening appointments available.  For reduced rates please contact reception.

Managing Super-Mum Syndrome – Leia Redman

Leia Redman    Quals: B. Psych; M. Psych (Clinical); MAPS; CCLIN

Managing Super-Mum Syndrome: Becoming a mother can be a wonderful experience, full of a range of emotions and adjustments. Motherhood is often not talked about openly with regards to the challenges that many women face, e.g. developing a healthy, nurturing relationship with your children while also being the disciplinarian. Times have changed and many women are now working as well as running a household and being a parent and a wife. Social media often adds pressure by contributing to people feeling inadequate as they compare themselves to others. It’s important to remember that what you see on social media is often not a true representation of that person’s life, but a well-orchestrated façade. It is helpful to find a balance of what works best specific to your life and your family’s needs.

Psychological Therapy Approach: Leia uses evidence based therapeutic techniques in her treatment with clients. Learning to take the pressure off yourself is helpful, using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: identifying and understanding your own values/goals and getting on track with them, not what society or social media says you should do; burnout, depression and anxiety are all possible outcomes if you continue to ignore feeling overwhelmed. Getting professional help can put things in perspective, help you learn coping strategies and establish a routine that suits your family’s lifestyle; and learning to prioritise and nurture yourself so you can be around for as long as possible and live the meaningful life that you want.

Mens Health – Yu Takizawa

Yu Takizawa    Quals: B Sc (Hons), M Couns, M App Psych                                 

Men’s Health Counselling: Traditionally, men are often brought up to “be tough and strong”. Men often feel that we are expected to handle issues by ourselves without seeking for help from others. This can make us to feel embarrassed for seeking help and support. But, in reality, men should actively seek for support when it is necessary because nobody can hand every issue by himself.

Counselling Approach: Yu welcomes each client with warmth and respect, providing a safe place for them to talk about even the most sensitive issues in their personal life. Yu is non-judgmental and acknowledges the uniqueness in values and opinions of each client, including the values from different cultural, spiritual and religious backgrounds. Yu’s preferred therapeutic approaches include Person-Centred Approach, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based approaches, and Neuropsychotherapy.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 for initial appointment, $180 thereafter. Medicare and health rebates may apply. Please contact reception if you require reduced rates.

Family Therapy – Trudy Sheffield

Trudy Sheffield       Quals: Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Hons) 

Critical Parent Syndrome: So many people are effected by critical or chaotic parents.  This leads to insecure attachments, anxiety, low self-esteem, low self worth, a lack of sense of self, and depression. If you can relate to being subject to a highly critical parent, or a parent/s with chaotic and unusual behaviours, you can find help and develop a meaningful, stable life.  Your concerns and issues need to be valued.  You may often find you question your own ability to make decisions and value.  Having a critical parent can also significantly impact on your ability to adjust to major life changes, or managing conflict, and assert yourself in everyday interactions.  Or, perhaps you find yourself very angry, depressed and uncertain.

Counselling Approach: Trudy Sheffield has extensive training in working with clients with complex family trauma and self-value issues.
Trudy draws on Cognitve Behavioural, Strength based and Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Psychoanalytic Therapy when working with you to make positive change. She has a respectful, warm approach to clients, offering a non-judgmental environment to clients whilst maintaining strong professional boundaries.

Current Availability: Usually 2-3 weeks.

Fees: Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $195 hr and $240 initial appointment for clinical appointments.  Health or Medicare Rebates may apply. Forensic sessions (for non-mental health based clients) incur an initial fee of $250. Subsequent sessions will cost $210.

Depression – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett       Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Depression: The experience of depression can be felt like living in an endless storm. Symptoms of depression include ongoing fatigue and fuzzy thinking, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Depression often comes hand in hand with negative thoughts about the self which make it incredibly hard to do anything to change the feelings.

Counselling Approach: Depression is a treatable condition for which treatments such as CBT, ACT, ISTDP and Interpersonal Therapy have been shown to be effective. If you are suffering from depression, counselling with me will explore the emotions you are experiencing which are causing you internal issues and symptoms, and the role internal defences play to keep you from getting better. Together we will work towards understanding and overcoming barriers to get back mental health and functioning.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Fees: Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 hr and $260 initial appointment.

Practice Location: Unit 1, 16 – 18 Beenleigh Redland Bay Rd, Loganholme.
