Dr Rosemary Anderson

Clinical Psychologist

Nexus Psychology

I believe it is possible for every individual to lead a rich and meaningful life, to develop good coping mechanisms that help to take the struggle out of life. I believe in an open and honest, trusting environment that can enhance a person’s ability to connect both to the self and to others. Emotions come and go, we are all inherently resilient.

      Background

      I have worked in hospital settings where individuals experience a range of medical, physical, emotional and circumstantial difficulties. These challenges often test people to their limits. It is a humbling experience working with people who share their life stories and trust in the therapy process to develop good coping strategies and manage life’s hurdles.

      10 Questions with Rosemary Anderson

      • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

      • I came to psychology later in life and loved exploring the human experience. Every person is unique and has a great deal to offer. I love my work and feel privileged that people choose to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with me.
      • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

      • I love the idea that emotions come and go. At times we feel swamped and overwhelmed yet everything moves and shifts. Embracing the flow of life can be invigorating. I believe that once the internal struggle is removed, people may then focus on what they choose is important.
      • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

      • I believe in spiritual, emotional, physical and cognitive wellness. I love to use ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) as it is a very experiential therapy.
      • What method/s do you use?

      • Many different skills and techniques that I have developed over the years to fit within my own style of working. I trust in the process and enjoy the road that we travel together.
      • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

      • Some people feel a benefit straight away. For others it can be a longer journey. Often, it depends on how motivated a person is to work on things when outside of the therapy room. Practise will help to speed the process.
      • How has therapy made you a better person?

      • Connecting with people has taught me that everyone has something unique to offer. I’m more forgiving of myself and of others and less judgemental.
      • What do you like most about being a therapist?

      • I love being invited into peoples’ lives and sharing their stories. It is very humbling.
      • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

      • All the time. I have days with low energy where I just feel that something is not quite right with the world. It’s hard to shake so I now just accept what I feel and nurture myself on those days. It passes.
      • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

      • I think that world hunger is very problematic. I would love to respond on a psychological level but I truly believe that unless people have food, shelter and safety the most basic human needs attempting to help someone emotionally is putting the cart before the horse.
      • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

      • Every client that I work with inspires me to continue. The inner strength, the determination and the willingness to continue despite the challenges.
