Counselling in Coburg

indoor counselling
outdoor therapy

Each one of us need to be witnessed, to be seen and heard and acknowledged by others.  Much of the time our friends and family around us can provide us with that support we need.  Sometimes, for many different reasons, we need someone outside our existing circles to support and witness us. 

Some of the reasons you may come to Counselling include:

  • Life transitions including parenthood, ending work, returning to work etc;

  • Eating disorders / disordered eating

  • Significant medical conditions;

  • Feeling overwhelmed or are not coping with life or aspects of life;

  • Experiencing panic or anxiety;

  • Experiencing difficulties in your relationships 

  • Experiences of Trauma

  • Grief and Loss;

  • You may not be able to put a finger on what is troubling you but you know things could be better.


When you engage me as a counsellor we work together in a collaborative way for one session or many.  Together we explore the parts of your life or self that you want to explore in a way that you are happy to explore it.   There are many tools we can explore together including talking therapy; movement, mindfulness, nature connection and somatic awareness / body centered therapy.


The places we can work together include:​

Rachael is influenced by the following ideas and theories:

  • Mindfulness – awareness in the present moment

  • Sensorimotor psychotherapy and trauma work – a branch of psychotherapy that works with the body to release from trauma

  • Attachment theory – exploring relationships especially earlier relationships

  • Brain Neuroscience – understanding the impact of attachment and trauma on the brain as well as neuroplasticity

  • Systemic theories – exploring contexts in family, community and society

  • Eco psychology / Bush Adventure Therapy – nature as a tool for connecting and healing​

  • Acceptance and Committment Therapy
