Mindfulness – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett       Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Mindfulness: Mindfulness is a practice with ancient roots. It has been found to have many positive physical and mental health effects and has been incorporated into many therapies currently to help clients cope with internal experiences in an accepting way that promotes resilience and full engagement with life. Minduflness has been found to be particularly helpful for mood and anxiety disorders such as PTSD.

Counselling Approach: I will often bring mindfulness into therapy early in treatment to assist clients in distress in the therapy room, and give them an active skill to practice at home to increase distress tolerance. I have found mindfulness assists with getting out of unhelpful thought patterns and chronic pain as well as helping keep focus on goal-oriented behaviours. I regularly use mindfulness in my own life and so have real world application to share with clients.

Personality Disorder – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett       Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Personality Disorders: Personality disorders generally receive a bad reputation in the community and are seen as chronic or lifelong conditions. Personality issues most often presenting for treatment are Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. I do not often see Avoidant or Antisocial Personality Disorder in a private setting, though I may in an addiction setting.

Counselling Approach: Often clients with a personality disorder are not seeking help for this disorder and may not even be aware it applies to them, I will focus on the issues they are having at present and work on personality concerns in conjunction with living the best life possible. When working with ‘personality’ I prefer to look at the emotional state beneath the symptoms and consider the unconscious defences within the client which are maintaining the personality traits.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Child and Adolescent Anxiety – Dr Rose Gillett

Dr Rose Gillett      Quals: B Psych (Hons), D Psych (Clin), MAPS

Child and Adolescent Anxiety: Anxiety is a difficult experience for anyone no matter their age. For a young person, anxiety can be crippling and impact on their lives from home to school, interfering with ability to make friends, complete schoolwork, or sleep in their own bed. It can be difficult to recognize anxiety in a young person due to their efforts to hide it and appear “confident.” Early detection and seeking support is very important in helping young people with anxiety achieve their full potential.

Counselling Approach: Rose works with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to treat anxiety with children and young people. She believes understanding of anxiety and how it is maintained is vital, followed through with clear, effective skill building to treat the physical, behavioural, and cognitive symptoms.
