Intern Psychologist & Practice Manager
Rebecca is an Intern Psychologist at BodyMatters. She holds a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) (Honours) and is an Associate Member of the Australian Psychological Society. Rebecca offers low cost counselling and discrete services. She also facilitates our recovery support groups and parent and partners support groups.
Rebecca’s interest in pursuing Psychology as a career developed in late high school where she realised she loved to work with people and wanted to further understand the science behind human behavior. Since then, both her university studies and practical experiences working in family and community settings have further established her passion for working with and helping people.
Rebecca has a genuine interest in eating disorders and she is motivated to help make a difference both at an individual level and at a societal level – where she finds the modern day emphasis on the importance of body image too often outweighs the importance of being healthy. Rebecca’s interest in health and well-being has been prominent for some time, having previously worked for several years as the Practice Manager of a natural health clinic.
With a naturally empathetic and caring nature Rebecca enjoys working with clients from a range of backgrounds and age groups. Rebecca uses an eclectic approach, individually tailored to suit each client’s needs. She incorporates evidence based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Psychotherapy. Rebecca also has training in Maudsley Family Based Therapy.
Rebecca also sees regional clients through Skype. Skype allows her to work with clients who do not have any local specialised services by removing the hours of travel previously required to seek support. Skype works in much the same way as face-to-face therapy does, however it is done through the computer and all resources can be sent via email.
Rebecca is currently working towards full registration as a Psychologist at BodyMatters.
