Hi my name is Rebecca but you can call me Bec. I graduated from James Cook University in Townsville, North Queensland with a Bachelor of Psychology, and since then have worked with the Australian Defence Force, the Criminal Justice System, worked with people with disabilities through the NDIS and now in Private Practice.
I love learning, am passionate about professional development and have recently completed further study in Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Chronic Pain education, and Complex Trauma Therapy.
Personally, I love the ocean. I am lucky enough that I live in the Gold Coast, withe the beach as my backyard. I find that yoga and meditation keeps me grounded and influences the way in which I practice as well as the tools I share with clients. I also love to travel and have found that connection with other people, places and cultures is an important part of my life.
I see you as a whole person, body, mind and spirit. I like to take a holistic view of therapy and often work with other professionals to help restore balance and wellbeing to your life. For example, if you are someone who suffers from chronic pain I will make sure you are linked in with other specialists to ensure greater care (physiotherapist, naturopath, etc).
I work with a broad range of clients and am particularly interested in helping people who suffer from chronic pain. I also enjoy working with women's health issues, grief and loss, life transition and people wanting to build confidence and self worth.
There are many different treatment modalities I work from, these include; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Exposure Therapy. Each person is different and during the first session, I get to know you, your goals and make a tailored treatment plan going forward.
