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?

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.
