Rebecca is the founder and director of The Mindful Birth Movement.

She is a passionate psychologist with a wide range of experience working with clients at an individual, group and organisational level. Rebecca provides individual counselling to clients of varying backgrounds and presenting issues, including concerns related to anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, stress, relationship and family issues, and more. Through utilising evidence-based approaches and developing a strong therapeutic relationship with her clients, Rebecca is able to support clients to move through any difficulties they are facing, improve their quality of life and attain a sense of fulfilment.

Rebecca has also worked in large organisations, including Victoria Police and The Department of Justice, where she conducted in-depth assessments, facilitated group treatment programs, as well as designed, implemented and evaluated mental health initiatives.

After having her own child, Rebecca discovered her passion for pregnancy, birth and babies… and has a special interest in supporting women throughout their perinatal journey. Rebecca appreciates the range of difficulties that women can experience in relation to conception, pregnancy, birth and motherhood, and believes that having the support of a warm, non-judgmental and compassionate person can make a significant difference.

Perinatal psychology

If you find yourself on the perinatal journey, whether it be in the planning stage, pregnancy or postnatal period, you are likely to come up against challenges, stressors or difficult experiences. What you are going through is totally normal. However, how you deal with it and who you go to for support can make a big difference in how you cope with those challenges.

Here are some of the common challenges that we have supported women through:

We can support you in a multitude of ways, whether that be to hold space for you and deeply listen to your experiences, to help you explore possible solutions or actions, or to help you gain insight and awareness of what is really going on for you.

We believe that you are the expert of your life, but sometimes we all need a bit of support and guidance. Here at The Mindful Birth Movement, we help you overcome your obstacles to become the best version of yourself and harvest the life you desire.

If you would like to book an appointment to see Rebecca, we welcome you to call her to discuss your needs and to see if she is the right person for you.
