Let us help

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

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.

Hi there, I’m Ros Yuen, a licensed psychologist and family therapist based near Norwood.

My mission is to partner with you to facilitate realistic and significant changes in your life if that’s your objective. I aim to interrupt the persistent loops of thought, feeling, and action that perpetuate your distress, and to introduce tools to help you progress.

Helping individuals heal from stress and trauma, alleviating anxiety, overcoming depression, and nurturing fulfilling relationships are areas where my passion thrives. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s imperative to cultivate the ability to find inner peace by managing our thoughts and actions wisely, rather than trying to manipulate external circumstances beyond our control. Simply put, it’s about mastering the art of riding life’s waves without attempting to alter the ocean’s shore.

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.

Nurturing a shift towards stronger, more enduring relationships alongside a mental health professional’s assistance may mark a significant turning point in your life journey.

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.

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.

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.

Same-sex couples may deal with various factors that can benefit from a comprehensive approach from a professional who understands.

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.

Yes, I do provide online consultations using Zoom and Phone sessions. Ideally, I prefer to have had an initial in-person meeting or two with clients before moving to online sessions. However, it’s important to note that some interventions, especially those designed for couples, may be more challenging to conduct effectively in an online format.

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.

Under Medicare, rebates are available for individuals, not couples, through a Mental Health Plan arranged by your GP. This plan is active for 12 months and entitles you to a maximum of 10 sessions. Your GP may allocate 6 sessions initially, with an option for 4 more sessions after a review consultation.

Psychologists are mandated reporters according to the Firearms Regulations 2017. This means we’re obligated to report any suspected firearm-related injuries or unsafe firearm situations.

Psychologists are required by law to report any reasonable suspicion of harm to a child or young person.

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 kindly ask for a minimum of 48 business hours notice for cancellations to accommodate those on our waiting list. In the event of cancellation less than 48 business hours before the appointment or non-attendance, full fees will be charged. For further details, please refer to our cancellation policy.

Gottman Therapy

Adapting various approaches to address specific issues is crucial to meet the unique needs of individuals or couples. One effective technique I utilise is called 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.

Tailored interventions are designed to address the individual strengths and weaknesses of a couple’s relationship, as identified within these profiles. Emphasis is placed on addressing perpetual issues, tackling solvable problems, and enhancing conflict resolution and communication abilities.

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.

Persistent, distressing thoughts that disrupt daily life characterise ongoing anxiety. While occasional anxious feelings are normal, when they become overwhelming or chronic, they exceed typical responses to situations.

When your behaviour raises concerns among yourself or your loved ones and begins to detrimentally affect your life, pursuing personalised treatment can provide the support needed to address these challenges effectively.

Compulsions can have a profound impact on daily functioning, warranting attention.

It’s normal to have periods of feeling low, but depression involves persistent and profound sadness. When left unaddressed, ongoing depression can escalate into a debilitating mental health challenge.

Symptoms like decreased energy, lack of interest in previously enjoyable pursuits, or feelings of isolation may signal the need for assistance in addressing a depressive disorder.

Stress is commonly characterised by feelings of tension and worry, serving as a temporary response that can sometimes be beneficial, albeit uncomfortable. Nonetheless, when stress becomes detrimental and interferes with daily functioning, it necessitates specific strategies and coping mechanisms.

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 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.

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