Let me help

Seeking help is nothing to be ashamed about. Everybody goes through periods of turmoil and upheaval.

I am an experienced psychologist and family therapist who can provide help, support and guidance. 

Ros Yuen Psychology
Hello, my name is Ros Yuen, I am a psychologist and family therapist practicing at Kensington.

I hope to support you to achieve realistic and meaningful changes in your life if that is your desire. My primary aim is to interrupt the existing patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that maintain your distress and to introduce new skills so that you can move on in life effectively.

I have a deep interest in helping people heal from stress and trauma, to help them reduce anxiety, conquer depression and build life-giving relationships. It is urgent today to acquire the skills to create our own sense of contentment by seeking more control over our own thoughts and deeds and foregoing misguided attempts at controlling those things that are simply uncontrollable. In short, it is enough that we learn to surf the waves of the ocean without shifting the shoreline.

My services are mainly office-based and in-person complemented by telehealth if required. Any mental health emergency will be referred to the SA Mental Health Triage Services on 131465.

My Psychology Services

Fostering positive momentum towards healthier and more resilient relationships with the support of a mental health professional has the potential to be pivotal in your life.

I can work with you to help you develop skills and strategies that may improve various aspects of your relationship and assist you to live a more fulfilling life. My areas of interest include couple relationships and family relationships. 

Intimate relationships will inevitably face ups and downs. This can impact many facets and cause a variety of issues that may be difficult to deal with alone.
Family relationships are complex, multi-dimensional, and layered. The combination of different views, objectives, behaviours, and actions has the potential to result in complicated dynamics that may hinder happiness and well-being.

When families change and grow, it can be both a positive and difficult experience. Blended families may face unique challenges that require a careful and intricate approach.

Being in a relationship with a narcissist can often start out well, being fun and exciting before tuning into very bad ones once a lack of genuine caring becomes evident.
Intimate relationships will inevitably face ups and downs. This can impact many facets and cause a variety of issues that may be difficult to deal with alone.
Issues in the working environment, such as intimidation or harassment, can be extremely difficult to cope with due to the complex nature of the situation. Professional support may make a significant difference.

If you have Private Health Insurance with Extras for Psychology, you can probably claim a rebate from your Health Funds. As Funds vary with their policies and levels of cover, it is best that you check directly with your Health Funds.

Medicare offers rebates for individuals, not couples, under a Mental Health Plan which is to be written by your GP. A Mental Health Plan has a shelf life of 12 months and during that period, you are entitled to 10 sessions assigned by your GP as 6 sessions, initially, and another 4 sessions following a review consult.

All our sessions are confidential. Psychologists are legally bound by confidentiality except when subpoenaed by court or when there is a serious risk of harm to you or another person or if mandated to report.

You will be asked to complete an intake form of several pages in the waiting room, then, the first session is for you to speak about your concerns with gentle guidance from me to make explicit what is implicit. You will also experience my interpersonal style and assess if I am the right fit for you. Two sessions are usually needed to cover the intake process and my aim in the first session is to be an attuned listener to you.

We require a minimum of 48 business hours notice so that cancelled appointments can be offered to those on the waiting list. If cancellation occurs less than 48 business hours before the appointment and in the case of non-attendance, full fees will be charged. You can read more on our cancellation policy here.

The Gottman Method

Taking different approaches when working to improve certain issues is important to cater for the specific needs of an individual or couple. One such technique that I implement is known as the Gottman Method.

This approach to couples therapy sessions and marriage counselling focuses on three profiles of relationships: the friendship profile, the conflict profile, and the shared meanings profile.

Interventions are tailored to the specific strengths and weaknesses of a couple’s relationship in terms of these profiles. There is a particular focus on perpetual issues, solvable problems, and conflict resolution and communication.

Do you struggle with?

Anger is a normal human emotion but becomes a problem when expressed in harmful ways. Learning to understand your anger is an important step towards managing it. Learn your triggers, warning signs, and relevant coping mechanisms and strategies.
Ongoing worry or thoughts that are distressing and that interfere with daily living. Feeling anxious is part of being human, but when it becomes sustained or reaches unmanageable levels, anxiety is no longer a normal response to certain situations.
Compulsion can be serious as it can impair the way one functions in many areas. If your behaviour or actions are worrying you or your loved ones and are negatively affecting your life, you may benefit from comprehensive treatment that is developed for your specific needs.
People go through periods of feeling down, but being depressed you feel persistently sad. Persistent depression can become a disabling mental health condition. If you are dealing with symptoms such as low energy levels, decreased interest in your usual passions, or a sense of withdrawal, you may require help for a depressive disorder.
Stress is often described as feeling tense and worried. Stress can be a brief occurrence that may be helpful in certain circumstances, despite being uncomfortable. However, stress may become harmful and affect your ability to function well, requiring targeted strategies and coping methods.
When something very frightening or threatening happens, a psychological wound can occur. Traumatic experiences can have a significant impact. Signs and symptoms of issues connected to trauma may be physical, behavioural, emotional, or cognitive.

Obsessive thoughts can focus on safety, germs, order or symmetry. Obsessional thinking is often paired with repeated behaviour or ritual to reduce anxiety that accompanies the thinking. This complex issue is often best dealt with through qualified and experienced professional support.

Understand insecure attachment and learn to behave in more securely attached ways. Issues such as insecure attachment, dismissive avoidant attachment, fearful avoidant attachment, and anxious preoccupied attachment typically require comprehensive professional support.
