Rosemary has been a psychologist for some 30 years, and is passionate about providing relationship counselling in Brisbane. She has considerable experience in working to assist people with individual and relationship difficulties. She is experienced in both assessment and therapy, and is particularly interested in working with couples to address the challenges of difficult communication, lack of intimacy, infidelity and disengagement.
Issues such as anger management, difficult personality factors (including narcissism), depression and anxiety, also contribute to relationship problems. Rosemary addresses these factors as they arise. Rosemary also offers same sex couple counselling, and pre-marriage counselling.
Working with individuals, Rosemary’s interests include trauma and grief, parent/child difficulties, and sleep problems (insomnia).
In her work, Rosemary aims to help people to identify and communicate their needs, understand the emotions that manifest as psychological pain, and to work towards clarity, acceptance, and compassion in their relationships with others, and also with themselves.
Rosemary draws on therapeutic tools such as CBT, Mindfulness, ACT, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. Sessions are available in person at her Auchenflower rooms, or via telephone or Skype by arrangement.
