Rebecca Rylands

Counsellor Level 4
ABN: 50 747 317 962

Rebecca Rylands is an experienced counsellor, holding Level 4 Clinical Registration with the Australian Counselling Association and a master of counselling degree. Over the past 7 years, Rebecca has developed an in-depth knowledge of social and emotional issues. Rebecca is passionate about helping mothers through the major life transition that is becoming known as Matrescence. Like adolescence, this is a time when change occurs physically, hormonally, and emotionally, and it can cause an identity shift, bringing up unexpected feelings of grief and loss for a life you once had. Relationship issues can begin, or become more apparent, as priorities change and the partnership becomes a family for the first time.
Many mums have unrecognised lingering feelings about the way the birth of their baby went, especially if they felt the experience was emotionally traumatic. Rebecca engages her trauma-informed counselling skills when working with all clients and can address specific traumatic events if, and when, you are ready. Rebecca is knowledgeable, compassionate, and thoughtful. Her counselling style involves getting to know an individual or family’s unique set of circumstances and supporting them to become agents of change in their own lives.
Problems people may bring to counselling sessions with Rebecca include anger management, anxiety and depression, grief, palliative care, relationship issues, parenting, sexuality and gender, trauma, suicidal thoughts and survivors of domestic violence. Rebecca uses a variety of modalities to suit a client’s particular needs. Her aim is to help individuals of all ages learn coping skills to deal with the kaleidoscope of life’s challenges. Rebecca puts value into building trusting relationships with people and so that they may live more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
