(Telehealth Only)

It is my pleasure to meet you and join with you in therapy. From wherever you have come, wherever you are right now, and wherever you are going, you are welcome here. The therapeutic relationship that we will create is a trusted space for you to feel safe and confident to be yourself.

I find it a great honour to be a psychologist. I wholeheartedly believe in your ability to grow and discover the very best version of yourself. With a fresh perspective, inquisitiveness and empathy, I am comfortable in sitting alongside you through difficult and confronting times. Equally so, I find enjoyment in experiencing the life-changing revelations that come from the exploration of oneself. My warmth and presence in the sharing of your journey is natural and intentional.

It can be both a challenging and enriching process to work through your difficulties or obstacles, towards your dreams. I will always have your goals in mind as I support you to live a wholesome life by:

  • deepening your understanding of yourself,
  • accepting and integrating aspects of yourself
  • enjoying positive relationships,
  • feeling safe and confident to explore your world,
  • finding meaning in your days,
  • developing strategies to overcome difficult aspects of your life, and
  • embracing your individuality and uniqueness.

I’ll work with you to create a picture of what you would like to achieve from our time together, and I’ll be guided by you, so that we are both looking in the same direction. If you are a couple or a family, we will be working together so that everybody can feel that they have a say in where things are going. I’ll also regularly check in with you to get a sense of how useful therapy is for you. This may change from session to session.

I have an eclectic range of interests within the mental health world. My work with you will draw on techniques and frameworks which are relevant to your reasons for coming to therapy and your therapy goals. These will include psychodynamic psychotherapy, schema therapy, attachment principles, mindfulness-based practices, cognitive behaviour therapy and for couples, Gottman Couples Therapy interventions.

Before my work at The Rosy Room I have worked psychologically with children, adolescents and families experiencing a range of mental health difficulties including addiction, trauma, abuse and neglect, attachment problems, parenting, grief and bereavement, anxiety and depression. For many years I also worked in a more corporate capacity, coordinating organisational and cultural change across urban and rural hospitals and health services.

I look forward to meeting you and discovering with you, for as long, or as little as you need.

Hi, I am Jotham but feel free to call me JJ.  I am a psychologist at The Rosy Room, and I want to welcome you to this great practice.

I have experience working with clients across the lifespan and I operate from an evidence-based perspective and tailor my approach specific to each person’s individual needs and presentation.  I work from a biopsychosocial perspective where I carefully consider each person’s presentation from their unique biological, psychological, and social factors that contributes to their experience.

In my approach, I draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness Techniques, and Emotion Freedom Techniques (EFT; also known as Tapping).

As a therapist, I consider myself warm and welcoming, and you can expect me to treat you with the dignity and respect that everyone deserves.  I will meet you wherever you are in this moment and work with you towards improving your mental health and leading a more fulfilling life.  You can expect me to be transparent with you, listen attentively and non-judgementally, work with you towards shared goals that is in your best interest, and always treat you as a person and not a condition.  I am genuinely interested in helping my clients and I continuously strive to improve my clinical skillset to provide the best possible service that I can.

I work with a range of emotional, psychological, and behavioural disorders, but I also work with people simply looking to better manage stress, improve their productivity, improve interpersonal relationships, improve their self-esteem, or maintain healthy psychological functioning.  I also offer psychological assessments available through The Rosy Room.

Thank you for visiting The Rosy Room, and I look forward to meeting you.

Qualifications and Training

  • Bachelor of Psychological Science
  • Graduate Diploma in Psychology
  • Master of Clinical Psychology from Bond University

Hi! My name is Kaity and I’m a Psychologist at The Rosy Room.

It can be a bit daunting at first choosing which Psychologist to see, and well… Whether to see one at all! It’s completely normal to feel some uncertainty at first. However, the moment you make the decision to get support, it starts to get easier. Sometimes it can help to know a bit about the person you’ll be sitting face-to-face with. So, I’ll tell you a bit about myself to give you an idea of my style and approach.

My training is in clinical psychology, and I work with all ages across the lifespan for both therapy and psychological assessment. I particularly enjoy working with children, adolescents, families, and young adults. I have experience working with anxiety, stress, anger, depression, addiction, trauma, PTSD, grief, childhood behavioural problems, personality disorders, general life stress, bullying, self-esteem, and relationship problems. I also enjoy working with autistic people, ADHD, learning disorders, and intellectual disabilities.

When you meet me, you can expect a warm, gentle, and non-judgemental approach. You will be listened to fully with compassion and understanding. My sole purpose is to meet you where you are, so we can collaborate to bridge the gap between the life you have, and the life you want. Together we will work towards building insight into yourself, your patterns of behaviour and thoughts and use strategies to better meet your ideal self. If you are seeking therapy for a child, you can expect to be a part of the process and for all parties to be heard.

As a foundation for the work we will do together, I draw upon evidence-based therapies including cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectic behaviour therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, and family intervention.

I look forward to meeting you wherever you are in your journey. Remember you are not alone and I’m here to help.

(Currently not taking on any new clients)

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to stop by. I guess you’re here because something in life doesn’t feel great at the moment. Firstly, good on you for recognising and owning that. Secondly, take a deep breath… help is on the way.

My name is Jessica and I am the owner of The Rosy Room. I am super passionate about caring for people and working alongside my clients to help achieve wellness. It is the biggest privilege to do this kind of work and I feel very honoured to sit with my clients and witness tales of utter strength and resilience. Sitting in the raw, juicy, real, human stuff is my thing and I invite you to join me in that, if it so calls you.

My therapeutic approach is very warm, personable and human centred. You are not your symptoms or condition. You are a human with your strengths and challenges. My work with you is about highlighting habits that are not serving you and energising action that will propel you into the place you truly belong.

I draw on skills through a wide range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. You come in as the expert in your life and I join you on your journey of growth as the expert in psychotherapy, and together we find your edge, your patterns, your calling, and what feels like home to you.

I work with adult clients over the age of 18, and I have experience in treating a wide variety of mental health conditions. However, you do not need to have a mental illness to see me, you might just be lost or stuck and in need of some guidance (or a gentle push). I can help you to find time in your life to fit in what’s important, to mend or leave an unhealthy relationship, to find courage to pursue your dreams, to create a healthy relationship with food and your body, or to transition into a new role such as motherhood. No problem is too big or too small.

My favourite areas to work in are-

  1. self-esteem and confidence in women– developing self-love and acceptance, learning boundaries and assertive communication skills, kicking perfectionism to the curb.
  2. Managing Health, weight and body image issues- creating a healthy relationship with food and your body through self-compassion, mindful eating and nourishing movement.

If this calls you, you’re ready. Let’s begin the work. It might be tough, but trust me, going inwards and doing the work is worth it.

P.s. I am not interested in working with clients who are not ready to take self responsibility- if I notice this I will call you out on it. Yes I can be your guide but ultimately you will be doing the work to change your life.

P.p.s If you would like to get a better feel for me you can check me out on my instagram page @rosyretreats.

Hi, I’m Kylie. I’m a registered Provisional Psychologist at The Rosy Room, and I’m excited to be here to work with you on your mental health journey! I know that starting on this journey can be quite intimidating for some, so in order to alleviate some of the pressure of picking who to see, I’ll tell you a little bit about me to help see if I’m a good fit for your needs.

I am an enthusiastic and warm therapist who believes everyone has unique strengths and differences that should be encouraged and celebrated. Prior to studying psychology, I worked with children and teenagers in education settings, and this history has shaped my interest in working with young people to overcome the trauma and challenges they may face before reaching adulthood.

I also have experience working with the NDIS, including providing support for presentations such as Autism Spectrum (AS), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Intellectual Disability (ID). I maintain a neurodiverse-affirming approach to practice, as I believe it is important to empower my clients to live their best lives and be themselves. I provide a non-judgemental and fun space for people to share whatever they feel safe disclosing, and this space is welcoming to all individuals inclusive of all sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, religions, genders, and abilities.

I use therapeutic interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Play Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). If something doesn’t work for you, let me know, and we can try something else! I’m here to work collaboratively with you to meet your needs.

If all of this sounds like I might be the right fit for you, I look forward to meeting you at The Rosy Room.
