R L Counselling and Wellbeing Services (RLCW) was founded by Rebecca-lea van Schaik in 2021 and is based in the outer-western regions of Melbourne, Victoria. It services people of diverse backgrounds, identities, and abilities using both in-person and online modalities.
Whilst its beginnings are small, Rebecca hopes it will grow into a practice that can contribute back to the local community in positive ways.
I would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation who are the traditional custodians of the land on which R L Counselling and Wellbeing Services operates.
I would also like to pay respect to the Wurundjeri Elders, past, present, and emerging, and extend this respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait people from other communities who use RLCW's services.

Hi, I'm Rebecca!
I started R L Counselling and Wellbeing Services because I love working with people to over come the challenges in their lives.
I have experience working with people with diverse backgrounds, sexualities, genders, ages, beliefs, and abilities in overcoming a range of mental health, wellbeing, and life challenges.
I have a background working with people living with mental health challenges as a support worker and recovery worker, and working with families of people living with AOD.
I know the importance of finding a counsellor that you 'click' with, and I hope that I get the opportunity to develop a therapeutic relationship with you and work with you towards your goals.
R L Counselling and Wellbeing Services' mission is to provide quality, person-centered, evidence-supported counselling to individuals, couples, and groups.
We aim to provide counselling and wellbeing services through a range of structures and modalities to make our services affordable and accessible to people from all walks of life.
At R L Counselling and Wellbeing Services we value:
- diversity, and
- life long learning
