Rosslyn Lyall is a highly skilled clinician with over 40 years working as a counsellor, family therapist and psychotherapist. Rosslyn also supervises other counsellors and specialises in working with clients of all ages including couples and family groups.

Rosslyn’s counselling work is guided by a passion for assisting people to improve their lives. She is guided by the principle that an individual’s early experiences influence later behavior and that our relationships are central to overcoming difficulties. Being respectful and warm, Rosslyn builds trust and rapport by showing understanding and empathy and creating an opportunity for clients to express themselves honestly. Rosslyn’s strength-based approach is purposeful and pragmatic moving deliberately to one or more mutually negotiated goals. Rosslyn’s clients learn to examine their thoughts, beliefs and attitudes, can decide whether these are serving them well, and are then supported to initiate changes that become more useful and sustaining. The counselling experience is inherently dynamic, creative, and unique and honors the humanity of every client.

Rosslyn uses an integrated, client-centred approach, drawing on many contemporary models of counselling into her practice including  but not limited to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic Family Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Imago Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma Informed Therapy and the Recovery Model, Gestalt Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Attachment-Based Therapy.  Rosslyn believes counselling can be a deeply rewarding experience and she looks forward to helping you achieve greater understanding, health and happiness.
