Rebecca Reynolds



I thoroughly enjoy working with people! I have spent the last 12 years supporting people from every walk of life, through alcohol and other drug addiction counselling. This has involved helping people to make positive dramatic change, and talking through every type of issue a person may have.


Supervision Services

I am passionate about supporting people to grow in their work, and also in themselves. I believe that supervision should be an enjoyable process, with the benefits of an authentic supervisory relationship, that includes doses of humour and buckets full of empathy.

I come from a strength based model, with the belief that when we focus on what a person is strong in, and build on that, then a person is able to flourish into the best version of themselves both personally and professionally. This increasing a person’s overall confidence and enjoyment of life and work.

Within supervision, I work exploring the topic that a person brings, helping a person to find their own answers. Depending on a persons personality, I facilitated this in either an organic way, or in a structured framework.

I have a wealth of experience in working with a wide range of people and issues, as well as managing mental health and physical risks, and can use this to support the conversation when appropriate.
