Psychological Society (MAPS). Originally from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Nick graduated with honours in 2016 and swapped the surf for the outback to commence his internship program in Broken Hill.
Nick’s experience has been predominantly with children and adolescents, working in both non-government and government sectors including headspace, CAMHS and more recently the RFDS. Nick enjoys the challenge and stimulation that remote work offers and strives to provide a professional service comparable to that found in the city.
Nick’s clinical interests include neurodevelopmental disorders including Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as anxiety conditions and complex trauma. Nick’s practice framework is informed by contemporary evidence based approaches including: cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy and traditional therapies including psychodynamic and attachment theory. Nick is fascinated by the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology, which is the study of how our minds and brains change and adapt through relationships and applies this theory to promote recovery in therapy.
Nick believes a good psychologist possesses a good mix of technical knowledge and interpersonal warmth. He strives to get this balance right when working with clients and enjoys working systematically, involving family and relevant parties at client discretion.
Outside of work, Nick enjoys the meditative benefits of long distance endurance training and seeing live music.
