Nicole Wimmer is a registered psychologist working with women around issues such as fertility, parenting, career, and juggling the delicate work/life balance. She has been a full member of the Australian Psychological Society since 1999.

Help for Career & Work Issues

Nicole has worked extensively in the area of workplace health and rehabilitation, including vocational counselling and assessment; adjustment to disability and pain management; workplace stress and mediation; and presentation and performance anxiety.

Work stress not only impacts your work life but also affects your enjoyment of social activities, ability to function well in your family, engage in fulfilling personal relationships, focus on your study, ability to manage your weight and sleep patterns. Being able to manage this component of our lives is a critical factor in maintaining psychological wellbeing. Nicole can work with you to look at different strategies to manage this important aspect of your life.

IVF, Infertility & Parenting

Nicole has an interest in working with individuals and couples going through fertility treatment including those considering the use of donors and surrogates. She has personal experience in IVF treatment. Nicole is a member of both ANZICA (Australian and New Zealand Infertility Counsellors Association) and FSA (Fertility Society Australia). She is able to prepare reports for clinics prior to commencing a Surrogacy or Donor arrangement.

A mum herself, Nicole is also very keen to assist parents to learn strategies to allow them to better experience the sometimes challenging world of parenthood. Becoming a mum closer to 40 can be fulfilling yet can require considerable adjustment. It can be quite isolating and having some support during this time can improve your overall experience.

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).

While addressing current presenting issues with clients, Nicole also focuses on developing skills in the client to better equip them to deal with future challenges as they arise.

Some of the issues Nicole is able to provide support and guidance for include:

  • Depression/ Anxiety/ Stress;
  • Pain management;
  • Adjustment to disability;
  • Career challenges – return from parental leave, career change, redundancy;
  • Grief and Loss;
  • Work Life Balance/ Work stress;
  • Social anxiety;
  • Adjustment to parenthood including single parenthood;
  • Surrogacy and donor counselling and report provision.
