Meet our Counsellors

Rebecca Barnes

Hi, my name is Rebecca. I was born in Zimbabwe. I love music and have been a vocalist for as long as I can remember.

I am coming from a high school teaching background and I have a Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents, Graduate Diploma in Counselling and currently working towards a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I believe in the eclectic use of modalities because there is some helpful therapeutic interventions in the different counselling schools of thought. My practice is influenced by a person- centred approach with the use of Creative Therapies, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt techniques to name a few.

I look forward to having one-on one chats in the counselling room and seeing you around school.
