Nick Richter: Registered Psychologist

I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults (and their families) as participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the Child Protection system. Working across various non-government organisations, I have gained valuable experience working collaboratively within multi-disciplinary teams to assist individuals with complex needs to reach their goals. This includes administration of psychological assessments and evidence-based interventions tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. I’m also trained in the use of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) systems, which assists self-expression for those with communication challenges in therapy.

I am compassionate, patient and attentive and aim to create a safe and non-judgemental space for individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings, and to create personalised and collaborative treatment plans. I focus on client’s strengths and resources to help them overcome their challenges. I use an integrative approach of evidence-based interventions, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

My areas of interest and experience include:

  • Anxiety (Social; Separation; Generalised)
  • Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks
  • Grief (including prolonged Grief)
  • Mood difficulties and disorders (including depression)
  • Stress Management
  • Anger Management
  • Assertiveness
  • Trauma (including PTSD and complex trauma)
  • Neurodevelopmental Differences (including Autism, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) focusing on Neurodivergent-affirming practices
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Self-esteem
  • Giftedness
  • Behaviour management strategies
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Suicidal and self-harming behaviours
