Hello, I’m Eryka Rhodes (BA.Couns) (MACA, Lvl 4), Mindfulness facilitator
With more than 20 years of listening to people’s stories, I work with you to create the next chapter.  I’m a qualified and registered Counsellor, based in the Mornington Peninsula, who skilfully supports adolescents, adults and relationships.  I’ll help you navigate the path to find your purpose, reframe concerns and look forward to an improved relationship with yourself and others.

I’m passionate about empowering you to develop a set of tools to help you become your own coach.

I support people with a wide range of concerns including:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depressive states
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low confidence
  • Performance pressures
  • Family conflict
  • Anger management
  • Eating disorder behaviour management

Taking the first step can be daunting, so I gently invite you to get in touch so that together we can acknowledge the past, embrace today and look forward to the future.

Eryka helps couples to explore their relationship and examine any patterns that might have potentially negative impacts.

She’ll work with you to develop strategies to help you move past these behaviours by improving communication and developing your relationship confidence.

Eryka’s goal is to help you work together towards a happier, healthier relationship.

Learn techniques for a calmer life

We met with Eryka for couples counselling to assist with improving our communication skills. Within our first session, Eryka provided us the space to discuss our relationship and the cycles we had found ourselves stuck in. Throughout the session we were able to diagnose the root cause of where we were both struggling, and she helped us really understand each others perspectives.

At the end of this session we felt like a weight had been lifted off our shoulders and a greater sense of clarity. To us everything made sense, and it really brought us so much closer together. We were given simple strategies to apply, which made a dramatic difference to how well we were able to communicate.

Whilst counselling was not something we previously thought we would be open to, we could not recommend Eryka highly enough. J&G.


Eryka changed my life. I started seeing Eryka many years ago and have continued to see her for ‘maintenance’ every once in awhile to this day.

Her caring and kind nature put me at ease immediately and her wealth of knowledge and experience has helped me deal with some big issues in my life. She helped me through some of my darkest days and has given me practical tools to use to move forward.

Can’t recommend her highly enough!

I’ve worked with Eryka for many years across different topics. I really appreciated Eryka’s insights and knowledge. Her professional, pragmatic and wholistic approach was refreshing, and led to a long, but rewarding path of personal growth. Doing the work takes time.


You took me to a nice place tonight Eryka, thank you! I look forward to where this journey through your relaxation, meditation and mindfulness, takes me next 🙂

….I like the way you emphasised the ‘doing’ rather than the theory, that’s exactly what we as workers in stress related work, really need the most
