Occupational Therapist, Director
- Continence specialist
- Developmental & sensory assessment
- Anxiety & behaviour
- Chronic illness
Since graduating from the University of Queensland in 2001, I have predominantly worked in the areas of child development and continence. However my greatest training comes from raising 3 children. My passion is to serve local families who are tackling tough issues such as wee/poo troubles, difficult behaviours, difficulties at school and unique sensory processing characteristics. My approach is informed by evidence-based practice and deep understanding of the physiology of the human body, however I strive to balance these with practical ‘real world’ solutions tailored to the individual family’s situation.
In my down-time I love time with my family, chatting with friends over coffee, card making and walking our puppy Sally.
Rebecca is frequently asked to speak on the topic of Paediatric Continence in Australia and wrote the Conquering Wees & Poos (© Queensland Health) learning package for other clinicians at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in 2011.

- Child development
- Capacity building
Since graduating in 2008 from University of Queensland I have worked predominately with children here in Brisbane and in London within a range of multidisciplinary teams in clinic-based, school, home and hospital settings.
I enjoy working with children and their families to help them develop independence and confidence in everyday activities. Hearing about the small (and big) wins from parents is something I really love, and I especially enjoy the feedback from children on their achievements. I strive to work collaboratively with children and their parents to problem solve specific ideas and strategies that will work for them at home/school on a daily basis. In addition to working collaboratively with families, I value working with other clinicians/health professionals involved in the child’s care.
I contract to Kids that Go on a Saturday morning and work for Queensland Health during the week. My work at Queensland Health involves a project role, as well as being part of a multidisciplinary team that assesses and helps parents to understand their child’s development, and links them with appropriate community services.
Outside of work I enjoy brunching, socialising and planning the next travel adventure.

I am an experienced Registered Nurse and Counsellor, with over 20 years of clinical practice.

My role at Kids That Go is to help people improve their health and wellbeing and to overcome the various hurdles that get in the way of life. In counselling we will work together as a team to explore strategies and practical skills that will help you respond more flexibly to difficult thoughts and feelings, and to work towards a life that is meaningful and fulfilling for you. My counselling is client centred and compassionate and I practice in accordance with my values of integrity, empathy, honesty, connectedness, kindness and acceptance.
When I am not working, I love spending time with my family, including two children in high school. I greatly value the importance of good quality sleep and physical activity on mental and emotional health and I am passionate about nutrition, cooking and eating whole foods and sharing these with my family.
