Meet Rob Matula, MA, RCC

Rob Matula MA, RCC BC Canada

Hi! My name’s Rob.

I’ve been a registered clinical counsellor for more than five years and I’ve worked in the social services industry for over a decade. Typically, I work with clients on stress management, anxiety, depression, PTSD, communication, career development, and work-related issues.

I’m committed to creating a safe, authentic, client-centred environment, customized to your specific issues, needs, and goals, while helping you to flourish in your life by encouraging you to get in touch with your authentic self and deal with whatever issues you’re facing by taking decisive action that’s aligned with your values.

Currently, I’m focused on working with business owners to implement corporate wellness strategies, and providing mental health education for corporate professionals, particularly those in the high-stakes, high-stress world of tech startups, and I also enjoy helping motor vehicle accident victims to overcome their issues through ICBC counselling.

No matter what it is you’re dealing with, I am confident I can help.

My Mission

To help companies develop high-functioning cultures by implementing corporate wellness strategies and to aid individuals in the alleviation of their suffering, so they can attain a sense of freedom in their lives.

Rob’s Story

How I Got Into Counselling

From a very young age, I always wanted to help people.

Rob Matula, MA, RCC of Matula Counselling Vancouver

As far back as I can remember, many members of my family, including my grandmother, and several of my cousins, struggled with clinical depression, among other mental health issues.

Over the years, I’ve even found myself to be prone to depression, though I’ve never succumbed to it.

So, from the time I was a child, I’ve been well aware of the suffering that people with mental health problems have to endure, and I wanted to be able to do something about it.

By the time I got to high school, I was already thinking about becoming a coach or a counsellor, so I decided to get a degree in psychology.

I was also starting to develop an interest in business and dreamed of one day owning my own.

After graduating, my desire to be successful in the business world led me to take on several jobs in sales and financial services, and while the money was great, the work wasn’t giving me a sense of purpose.

Technically, I was still helping people, but I wanted to help them in a more meaningful way.

So, I left the world of sales, started working at a local youth agency, and then decided to go back to school and get my master’s degree.

I started out in private practice right out of school, and also worked at a private clinic for a few years, but I’m now focusing solely on my own private practice.

Needless to say, I’m finally helping people in the way I’d dreamed of all those years ago, and I couldn’t be happier.
