Ms Domenica (Nic) Roperto, Accredited Mental Health Social Worker

Domenica (Nic) is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with more than 30 years experience.

Nic’s honesty and down to earth nature allow her to quickly build a rapport with those individuals she seeks to assist through her work; even those for whom trust is an issue.   She is also a highly skilled trainer and public speaker.

Nic brings a refreshing approach to the teaching of mindfulness which has led to real results.  Individuals struggling with high levels of anxiety often believe they “cannot meditate”.  Nic uses a combination of the work of Jon Kabat Zinn (Full Catastrophe Living) and Dr Stephen Porges’ work (The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological Foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication and Self-regulation) to help people find calm in their own lives.

Nic’s firm belief in the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy come through in her work.   We have one life, this is it, and regardless of what has happened to us, if we can use our expertise of ourselves and the values we hold close we can achieve change for ourselves.

Nic sees clients aged 10 and over via Mental Health Care Plans, WorkCover, TAC, Victims of Crime and privately.
