Panic Disorder – Nicole Wimmer

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

Panic Disorder: Panic attacks are episodes that come “out of the blue”. They peak within a few minutes and cause feelings of terror and alarming physical symptoms that may include: pounding heart, sweating, trembling or shaking, shortness of breath, choking, chest pain, nausea or abdominal discomfort, “jelly” legs, dizziness, a feeling of being detached from oneself, fear of losing control, going crazy, fear of dying, numbness or tingling sensations, or chills or hot flushes.

People have often sought medical attention only to be told that there is no medical reason for their symptoms. People often dread the next attack and sometimes avoid places or situations where they have had panic attacks.

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.

Current Availability: Usually within a week.

Panic Disorder – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Panic Disorder:  If you have panic attacks (such as feeling faint, nauseous or have difficulty breathing for no explainable reason), you would know that this condition can be very stressful and debilitating. Someone who has frequent panic attacks might not be able to enjoy their life as they avoid certain places, events or situations for fear of having a panic attack there and then.

Panic disorder can be symptomatic of deeper psychological and emotional difficulties within a person. Seeing a psychologist can not only help you to manage these panic attacks, but to address the underlying issues which are contributing to the disorder.

Counselling Approach: Joey adopts an open approach to dealing with panic disorder – he focuses on the whole psychological makeup of a person rather than just the external symptoms. This usually includes an exploration of some of the unconscious turmoil within the individual, and seeking to address and improve on these internal struggles. Joey utilises a range of different techniques and strategies to manage the panic disorder so that the individual is able to remain functional during the therapy process. Sessions with Joey are also relaxed and non-judgmental in nature.
