Dr Nicole Carrigan

Clinical Psychologist

Nicole has recently completed AHPRA’s Clinical Psychology Registrar program, and she has achieved accreditation as a Clinical Psychologist. She is also working towards completing her PhD in clinical psychology at the University of Wollongong, where her research focuses on how experiences of minor difficulties with real world memory and attention relate to psychological distress and disorder.

Nicole works with adolescents and adults of all ages. She is experienced with a wide range of presenting problems including difficulties adjusting to life events and loss, relationship issues, mood and anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, and self-harm and other emotion regulation problems. She aims to help each person move towards living the life that will give them a sense of meaning. Nicole is trained in a number of evidence-based therapies, working primarily from a schema therapy perspective and drawing from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy, which includes mindfulness strategies. Nicole enjoys providing short-term interventions, as well as developing longer-term therapeutic relationships with those who would benefit from a more thorough self-exploration. She works collaboratively with her clients, and will discuss with you the approach that is likely to best suit you and your needs.
