Dr. Nicole Flanagan

I have a Bachelor of Psychology (BPsych), Bachelor of Behavioural Science Honours (BBehScHons) and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych) from Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.

I have worked as a sessional academic and have experience in different inpatient and outpatient settings in the public and private sectors.
 
I tailor evidence-based Interventions depending on client preference and current concerns. I practice supportive psychotherapy from psychodynamic and cognitive behaviour therapy perspectives. I also draw on attachment theory and mindful self-compassion.
 
I offer Individual therapy to children and adults. Click here to see the Child Therapy page. 

Individual therapy with adults

The first session involves gathering pertinent information so that I can best understand your current concerns. I will ask a series of questions so I can begin to understand relevant factors from your past. I will also ask about current factors that may be contributing to the problem. We will discuss what your goals are in attending therapy. I will then offer my summary and formulate a proposed course of treatment. This process is collaborative and flexible; it is about ensuring we have a shared understanding of the issues that brought you to come see me so that I can offer the most targeted approach in treatment.
