Meet Ros

PACFA accredited Clinical Private Practitioner and Supervisor

CCAA Clinical Member

B.Arts (Psychology), Master of Counselling

Expressive Therapies - Children and Adolescents

Practicing counselling for over 25 years, Ros is a warm, authentic person, quick to humour. She has great respect for lived experience and is strength based and recovery oriented. Ros is non-diagnostic, and although she has a good understanding of mental health conditions, it is not her role to label. She thinks in terms of “what’s happened to/for you” rather than “what’s wrong with you”.

She is open-minded and non-judgemental with a curious stance when exploring with people their experience of gender, sexuality, lifestyle, values, relationships, religion, culture, socio-economic factors and family dynamics.  


Ros’s qualifications are a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and a Masters of Counselling. She is involved in ongoing professional development. Ros is registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA Reg. Clinical 23730) as a Clinical Counsellor and approved Supervisor. She also holds membership with the Christian Counselling Association of Australia.

What to expect in counselling:


Ros brings an holistic and integrated approach to counselling practice, incorporating a variety of therapeutic strategies that embrace the idea that how we approach life’s challenges can greatly impact our capacity to thrive rather than merely survive.  Some of the strategies used by Ros include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Expressive Therapies such as symbol work, drawing, somatic awareness and focusing.

The counselling relationship for Ros is about working together to bring about the outcomes that are most important and valued by each person seeking assistance,  in a way that suits their needs, personality and style.

For those seeking professional supervision and supervision of supervision, Ros also uses an holistic and creative approach. Emphasis in supervision is on providing support in all aspects of professional practice that relate to working with people, associated administration tasks, education for ongoing professional development, and personal and professional support in dealing with day-to-day issues, impacting professional practice.
