Rhiannon has completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) and is completing a Master of Professional Psychology and a Master of Culture, Health and Medicine. She is available for counselling appointments on Fridays.
Her interest in mental health stemmed from experiences during the Black Saturday bushfires where she noticed a need for therapeutic supports tailored to the individual person rather than a one size fits all approach.
Throughout her career, Rhiannon has gained valuable experience using a wide range of alternative therapies, as well as CBT and ACT. In 2015 she received a scholarship to study Cross-cultural Anthropology in Cusco Peru. In 2017 she received a scholarship to study Positive Psychology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands where she did a study on the benefits of music for improving anxiety and depressive symptoms. Rhiannon has a keen interest in understanding how one’s environment influences mental health outcomes and has recently completed research in the field of Epigenetics and Surf Therapy.
Rhiannon takes a humanistic, person-centred approach to therapy. She considers herself to be a big kid and values humor, authenticity and unconditional acceptance. Rhiannon is also a surf coach and lover of the outdoors and spends her weekends going on adventures, surfing or pursuing her love of photography. She enjoys working with a wide range of people but in particular, has a knack for working with children, adolescents, and presentations such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, neurodivergent and adjustment disorders
