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.

Phobias – Nicole Wimmer

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

Phobias (Agoraphobia): Agoraphobia in the most general terms is a fear of being in public places. It is an anxiety disorder and in the most severe cases, people suffering from this disorder are housebound. Typically, it starts off as a mild anxiety about a particular place or situation that escalates over time into a generalised fear of being in public. Agoraphobia is a disabling fear. It is associated with panic attacks and anxiety. Often the reason behind the person not being able to be in public places, or leave the perceived safety or their own homes is the fear of having a panic attack, of losing ‘control’ or embarrassing themselves.

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).

For obvious reasons, a person suffering from agoraphobia’s ability to attend treatment is limited. Nicole is able to assist by offering the option of home visits initially (Gold Coast, Tweed Heads and Brisbane) until a person is able to attend the clinic.

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

Current Availability: Usually within a week.

Weight Loss Management – Nicole Wimmer

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

Weight Loss Management: Are you desperately trying to lose weight but getting nowhere? Have you tried every diet but just can’t stick to any? Often people trying to lose weight manage to “stay on track” for a few weeks but just can’t sustain it for enough time to make a real difference to their weight. Others can drop weight quickly but put it back on again and more!

Your thoughts play a big part in your weight loss attempts and can often sabotage your efforts. All or nothing thinking is common: “Well I’ve blown it for today anyway so I might as well eat the rest of the packet of biscuits!”

Having the support of a Psychologist during your Weight loss journey can help smooth out the hurdles and mountains of despair and keep you on track. There is no magic wand but if you can have your intentions, behaviours and thoughts working together towards your goals you will have the best chance of success.

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.

Interview Preparation – Nicole Wimmer

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

Interview Preparation: Are you looking for a new job? Are you returning to the workforce after a period or absence e.g, caring for children or after an injury? Or are you putting off looking, because you are terrified of interviews?

Interview anxiety can prevent you from taking the next step in your career. It can also cause you to stay in a job that you are not happy with, further dwindling your self-esteem and in some cases even leading to depression.

A Psychologist can help you to learn strategies to assist with managing anxiety during interviews.

Health Psychology – Nicole Wimmer

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

Health Psychology: For people suffering chronic pain following an injury, day to day activities are a struggle, sleep is disturbed, work and social life is impaired, and relationships are negatively affected. There is generally a multitude of medications taken to combat the pain but with little effect. Even though it is not ‘all in your mind’, health psychology recognises that the mind is a powerful tool and can often help you to manage the pain and restore your life to where it should be. Why not come and see me and give it a try?
