Diana Rebuffo

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 at CentaCare Wodonga in 2012. Later in that same year I was approached to work at Junction Support Services, Wodonga.

I'm currently with JSS 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.

I specialize in family violence and trauma. Please do not hesitate to call or email as I'm 100% dedicated to assist in anyway you need.

Absolute discretion and confidentiality guaranteed.

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

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 Desensitization Reprocessing. (EMDR).  All highly effective, evidence based talk therapies available at Rise and Shine. 

 

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, as well as the highly-sought after EMDR.
