Let me help

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

As a seasoned psychologist and family therapist, I am here to offer my skills in providing help, 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 Marryatville.

My objective is to work alongside you to cultivate practical and meaningful shifts in your life if that’s what you seek. I aim to challenge the entrenched patterns of cognition, emotion, and behaviour that sustain your distress, and to introduce new techniques to empower you in moving forward.

I am deeply committed to guiding individuals through the journey of healing from stress and trauma, empowering them to lessen anxiety, triumph over depression, and forge enriching connections. In this contemporary landscape, it’s vital to develop the skills necessary to find contentment within ourselves, steering away from futile attempts to control the uncontrollable.

My services primarily take place in-office, offering face-to-face sessions, with the flexibility of telehealth consultations when necessary. For mental health emergencies, individuals will be promptly referred to the SA Mental Health Triage Services by calling 131465.

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.

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.

Ups and downs are a common part of intimate relationships, giving rise to a range of challenges that may feel overwhelming to address independently.

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.

Relationships with narcissists can initially seem thrilling and enjoyable, but as genuine care diminishes, they can swiftly turn sour, revealing their detrimental nature.

Same-sex couples encounter diverse challenges that can benefit from a holistic approach from a knowledgeable professional.

Challenges like workplace intimidation or harassment can be incredibly daunting to navigate, given their intricate dynamics. Seeking professional support could prove pivotal in addressing and overcoming such issues.

Upon arrival, you’ll be requested to fill out an intake form in the waiting room. During the first session, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns while I offer gentle guidance to help discuss any issues. You’ll also have a chance to assess my interpersonal style and determine if it aligns with your preferences. Typically, the intake process spans two sessions, and in the initial session, my goal is to provide attentive listening and support.

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

Gottman Relationship Therapy

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

This method of couples therapy and marriage counselling centres on 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 struggle with…?

While anger is inherent to human nature, its expression in harmful ways can lead to problems. Mastering your anger begins with comprehension. Identify triggers, acknowledge warning signs, and embrace coping mechanisms to effectively navigate this emotion.

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.

If your behaviour is causing distress for you or your loved ones and is interfering with your life, seeking specialised treatment tailored to your specific requirements can offer valuable assistance in addressing these concerns.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
