Rise and Shine Counselling & Play Therapy Wodonga provides a suite of therapeutic supports such as EAP counselling, NDIS counselling as a sole trader, counselling for adults, counselling for teenagers, counselling for children, play therapy, and telehealth counselling via zoom or phone.
It's important to me that clients experience a relationship that's engaging, compassionate, warm, and responsive. My intention in every session is to provide clients with a safe, confidential space where we can explore what clients want and need. I will listen carefully and compassionately without making assumptions or passing judgement so that I can work alongside clients to create change and heighten insight.
Clients tell me they appreciate my informal approach. I want clients to leave counselling feeling enabled and empowered to believe in themselves and achieve their goals. Clients will get a better understanding of themselves and their situation, unpick complex issues, gain coping skills and practical strategies to manage their life better. I assist clients to come up with their own solutions, so they can carry on without me!
Presently I am the only qualified Children's Play Therapist in Wodonga (provisional). I thoroughly enjoy working with young children.
I'm also certified in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Solutions Focused Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). All highly effective, evidence based talk therapies available in-office.
However for teenagers and adults who prefer less Q&A style talk therapies, there is the option to be supported through the powerful yet gentle approaches of: Mindfulness, Sandplay Therapy, Expressive Therapies, and Guided Drawing. Counselling approaches which I predominantly practice.
My name is Diana Rebuffo bhs msw. I have a Masters in Social Work, Advanced Certificate in Clinical Play Therapy and credentialed in other psychotherapy approaches.
Prior to Rise and Shine Counselling & Play Therapy Wodonga I had been counselling since 2012 beginning at CentaCare Wodonga.
Currently I'm working with another Wodonga agency holding two roles. One as Child and Adolescent Family Violence and Homelessness Counsellor. The other role is funded by the Australian Childhood Foundation providing group work and specialist Adult Family Violence Counselling.
During this time of global uncertainty, I will be following the health guidelines requiring social distancing. I will do my utmost to support clients without increasing their risk to infection. I am now offering on-line sessions (telehealth) via zoom, phone, emails, recorded podcasts. Please phone to chat how this would work, and if it would satisfy your needs.
