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 and excel in working with young children from as little as 3 years of age.
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 which are also available.
However for teenagers and adults who prefer less Q&A style talk therapies, there is the option of being supported through the powerful yet gentle approaches of Mindfulness, Sandplay Therapy, Expressive Therapies, Guided Drawing, and EMDR.
Counselling approaches which are predominantly sought after.
My name is Diana Rebuffo bhs msw. I have a Masters in Social Work, Bachelor in Human Services, Advanced Certificate in Clinical Play Therapy and credentialed in other psychotherapy approaches.
I began counselling in 2012 at CentaCare Wodonga.
I'm now working at a different 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 covid-19 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 or phone sessions. Please phone to chat how this would work, and if it would satisfy your needs.
Also at this time of distancing and isolation, records from other countries are showing a spike in family violence and child abuse.
I specialise in this field. Please do not hesitate to call or email as I'm 100% dedicated to assisting in anyway you need. I am here for you.
