Your Local Leabrook Psychologist

I may be able to support you

Asking for help is a courageous step. We all experience times of turbulence and disruption in our lives.

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.

Welcome, I’m Ros Yuen, a psychologist focusing on family therapy, conveniently located near Leabrook.

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.

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.

Primarily, I provide in-person services at my office, with the option of telehealth if needed. In the event of a mental health emergency, individuals will be directed to the SA Mental Health Triage Services at 131465 for immediate assistance.

Psychology Support

Cultivating healthier, more resilient relationships with the guidance of a mental health worker could be transformative for your life.

Partnering with me means embarking on a transformative path towards a more fulfilling life. I’m dedicated to helping you cultivate essential skills and effective strategies tailored to improve your relationships. My focus areas include enhancing couple and family dynamics and ensuring holistic support along 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.

Within families, relationships weave together different viewpoints, goals, behaviours, and interactions. These combinations can create dynamics that, if left unaddressed, may undermine the collective happiness and well-being of the family unit.

Amidst the changes and growth within families, there’s a blend of positivity and adversity. Navigating the complexities of blended family dynamics requires a tailored and sensitive approach to address the distinct challenges they present

The early stages of a relationship with a narcissist might be exhilarating and joyful, but as their lack of authentic empathy becomes apparent, the dynamics can deteriorate rapidly, leading to challenging situations.

The complexities faced by same-sex couples call for a thorough approach from a compassionate professional who comprehends their experiences.

Dealing with workplace issues such as intimidation or harassment can pose significant challenges. Accessing professional support may be instrumental in managing and finding resolution amidst these issues.

The Gottman Method

Employing diverse strategies to address particular challenges ensures personalised support for individuals or couples. Among the methods I employ is the Gottman Method, known for its effectiveness in fostering healthier relationships.

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 find it difficult to cope with…?

While anger is a natural human emotion, it can become problematic when expressed destructively. Understanding your anger is key to its management. Identify triggers, recognise warning signs, and adopt effective coping strategies.

Enduring distressing thoughts or excessive worry that hinders daily activities is indicative of ongoing anxiety. Although feeling anxious from time to time is common, when it persists or becomes unmanageable, it deviates from typical reactions to circumstances.

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.

While everyone experiences occasional lows, depression entails persistent and overwhelming sadness. Prolonged depression can evolve into a debilitating mental health condition.

Experiencing symptoms like reduced energy, diminished interest in once-enjoyed activities, or a tendency to withdraw may indicate the need for assistance with managing a depressive disorder.

Stress is often associated with sensations of tension and apprehension, serving as a transient experience that may have adaptive qualities despite its discomfort. Nevertheless, when stress reaches harmful levels and starts to disrupt your capacity to function optimally, it demands focused strategies and coping mechanisms.

Experiencing something deeply frightening or threatening can result in psychological wounds. Traumatic events carry substantial consequences, manifesting in physical, behavioural, emotional, or cognitive signs and symptoms associated with trauma-related issues.

Obsessive thinking is commonly accompanied by repetitive actions or rituals intended to alleviate the anxiety associated with those thoughts. Seeking support from qualified and experienced professionals is often the most effective approach to tackling this complex issue.

Challenges related to insecure attachment, dismissive-avoidant attachment, fearful-avoidant attachment, and anxious-preoccupied attachment typically call for extensive professional assistance.
