Rowena Brookes

Family and Relationships Counsellor

Grad Dip Counselling and Integrated Psychotherapy, M Couns

Rowena’s counselling career began in 2016 after a passion for helping people prompted her to undertake a career change and pursue studies as a Counsellor.

Rowena has a range of experience working with couples, teenagers, children and families.

Rowena loves getting to know her clients on a real level, while helping through their challenges, seeing them learn about themselves, realise that change is possible, and that there is always hope. She believes it’s a real privilege to be let into her clients’ lives on this level for a season and witnessing change.

Rowena has completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and is also trained in EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). EMDR is used to help people who are experiencing emotional distress caused by trauma or unresolved issues.

Rowena will also see clients who need help with:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Addiction
  • Anger management
  • Trauma

Rowena is a registered supervisor with ACA and offers professional supervision to counsellors.

Rowena is passionate about seeing relationships and families thrive. She believes that relationship therapy should not be the last resort before break up, but something couples engage in regularly to build a stronger relationship through all stages of life.
