Nicole Skermer - Counselling PsychologistI am a Counselling Psychologist with a Masters degree in Psychology. I have 15 years experience within the non-for-profit, public and private sectors. I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society and the APS College of Counselling Psychologists.

I have a genuine interest about the people I work with and my focus is on creating a strong therapeutic relationship. I enjoy working with people to achieve long term meaningful change.


Types of Psychological Therapies utilised

I tailor my therapy to the individual needs of each client. I commonly utilise the following forms of therapy to achieve change:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; assists individuals to defuse from negative thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, whilst re-focusing on what is valuable and meaningful in their lives

Interpersonal Therapy; focuses on the individual within their social context and on
improving their connections, engagement and relationships

Cognitive-behavioural Therapy; defines the links in an individual’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Through modification replaces unhelpful thinking styles with more adaptive ones with flow-on effects to their actions

Mindfulness Therapy; enables the individual to become aware of their thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations in a non-judgemental way, and to become more connected to the present moment
