Lifeskills Centre will be running a Pregnancy Support Group for women that are between 12 and 30 weeks pregnant.
These group therapy sessions will be facilitated by our fully qualified Psychologist Nicole Hann. Nicole is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, and has completed a Bachelor degree and a Masters degree in Psychology.
Over the past three years Nicole has specialised in the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management and stress management. Nicole also has extensive experience counselling women with difficult pregnancies and/or deliveries. Aside from facilitating groups, Nicole also works with individual clients and couples too.
Between 2014 and 2015 Nicole completed a research project which involved exploring and understanding women’s experience of pregnancy, labour and delivery, and the factors that shape the mother-infant relationship after birth. Since this, she has a keen desire to assist women understand their emotions throughout pregnancy, and foster an overall sense of wellbeing in preparation for birth and the postnatal period.
These sessions are therapeutic in nature, and are designed to offer psychological and emotional support, as well as increasing knowledge and awareness about emotions and other challenges facing you throughout your pregnancy.
Nicole’s therapeutic style is warm and approachable. She prioritises a safe, and non-judgemental environment for all clients, and strives for clients to feel comfortable to share as little or as much as they like.
