I’m Rachel Viss and I grew up on the New South Wales North Coast.

After graduating with a degree in Social Work, Rachel Viss worked with Children, Young People and Families for many years. In this work, Rachel hit a defining moment where she wanted to find answers for people, which would bring lasting, positive change. Rachel Viss has invested many years now, into that pursuit.

Rachel is passionate about offering you the best of what the world has to offer in supporting you to make the changes you are looking for in your life.

Life Tree Counselling is located in Coff’s Harbour. In addition to helping individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents, Rachel Viss offers:

  • Anger Management Counselling
  • Emotional Coaching
  • Relationship Counselling
  • Dialectical behaviour Therapy
  • Addiction, Drug & Alcohol Counselling
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Parenting after domestic violence
  • Families with mental health presentations.
  • Narcissism and borderline personality presentations.

I will create a safe place for you and your loved ones.

In the process I will be committed to you , your goals, celebrating your successes and supporting you to find solutions to your life.  I won’t be taking a stab in the dark with you, over your life.

I have a clear map which we can follow, which is evidence- based, showing us what direction to head in, for long-lasting change. If I don’t have the right answers, I will try to find them for you or refer you to another person who might help.

Rachel Viss is an experienced counselling professional with over twenty years of experience and works with individuals, couples and families. Based in the Coffs Harbour region, NSW
