Seeking help is nothing to be ashamed about. Everybody goes through challenges and seeking help is not something to be ashamed of.

Drawing from my extensive background in psychology and family therapy, I am well-equipped to offer assistance, support, and guidance.

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

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

My goal is to collaborate with you in fostering purposeful transformations in your life. I strive to disrupt the unhelpful cycles of thought, emotion, and action that can hurt you, and to introduce fresh strategies so you can navigate life on your terms.

My passion lies in helping individuals overcome stress and trauma, ease anxiety, defeat depression, and foster nourishing relationships. In today’s world, mastering the ability to cultivate inner peace by managing our thoughts and actions is crucial. It’s about embracing what we can influence while releasing the grip on what’s beyond our control—learning to navigate life’s currents without trying to alter its natural course.

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.

Psychology Support

Building momentum towards healthier, more resilient relationships with the aid of a mental health professional has the power to make a profound impact on your life’s direction.

Together, we can collaborate to enhance your relationship by equipping you with valuable skills and effective strategies, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling life. I focus on couple and family relationships, aiming to support you in various aspects of your journey.

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.

Family transformations bring a mix of benefits and challenges. Blended families encounter specific obstacles demanding delicate and detailed support to overcome.

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.

Various factors unique to same-sex couples need a comprehensive approach from a skilled professional who understands their specific needs.

Coping with workplace challenges like intimidation or harassment can feel overwhelming. Engaging with professional support services may offer valuable assistance in navigating and resolving these situations.

This session also serves as an opportunity for you to get a sense of my interpersonal approach and decide if it suits your needs. Generally, the intake process extends over two sessions, and during the first, I aim to be a compassionate listener, fully attuned to your needs.

We require a minimum of 48 business hours notice so that cancelled appointments can be offered to those on the waiting list.

The Gottman Approach

Recognising the importance of tailoring approaches to suit individual or couple needs, I integrate various techniques. One method I frequently use is the Gottman Method, renowned for its ability to address relationship issues effectively

In couples therapy and marriage counselling, this approach emphasises three relationship profiles: the friendship profile, the conflict profile, and the shared meanings profile.

Interventions are customised to address the unique strengths and weaknesses of a couple’s relationship based on these profiles. Special attention is given to perpetual issues, solvable problems, and enhancing conflict resolution and communication skills.

Do you find it difficult to cope with…?

Anger, though a common human emotion, can pose issues when handled destructively. Developing an understanding of your anger is pivotal to its control. Recognise triggers, heed warning signs, and adopt coping mechanisms to effectively manage them.

Continuous worry or intrusive thoughts that disrupt everyday functioning define ongoing anxiety. While experiencing occasional anxiety is natural, when it becomes prolonged or unmanageable, it surpasses regular responses to life’s challenges.

Compulsions carry significant weight as they can disrupt various aspects of functioning.

If your actions cause concern for yourself or those close to you and impact your life negatively, seeking tailored treatment can be beneficial for addressing your unique needs.

The seriousness of compulsions lies in their potential to disrupt multiple areas of functioning.

While it’s common to have moments of feeling down, depression involves enduring feelings of sadness. If left unchecked, persistent depression can develop into a debilitating mental health disorder.

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.

Feeling tense and anxious is a typical description of stress, which can serve as a short-term response, occasionally offering utility despite its discomfort. However, when stress becomes excessive and begins to impede your ability to function effectively, it calls for targeted strategies and coping techniques.

The occurrence of highly frightening or threatening events can lead to psychological scars. Traumatic experiences wield considerable influence, often revealing themselves through physical, behavioural, emotional, or cognitive indicators linked to trauma-related concerns.

  Obsessive thinking frequently accompanies repetitive behaviours or rituals aimed at alleviating the anxiety linked to those thoughts. Addressing this intricate issue is often most effective with the guidance of qualified and experienced professionals.

Gain insight into insecure attachment patterns and cultivate behaviours that align with secure attachment styles.

Addressing issues like insecure attachment, dismissive-avoidant attachment, fearful-avoidant attachment and anxious-preoccupied attachment often necessitates comprehensive professional guidance.

Develop an understanding of insecure attachment dynamics and adopt behaviours conducive to secure attachment patterns.
