Types of Psychological Therapies utilised

Nicole tailors her therapy to the individual needs of each client. She commonly utilises 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
