Rose's teaching background provides her with both experience and a unique perspective when assessing learning and behavioural issues in children and adolescents and providing recommendations for parents and teachers.
Rose is also the National Supervising Psychologist for Australian Mensa. She is very interested in the experiences of people with high IQs and their mental health issues.
Rose was elected by her peers to the APS Sydney Branch Committee in 2016 and she currently holds the position of Early Career Representative. She also chairs the Students and Provisionally Registered Psychologists Subcommittee which is involved in providing mentoring and support for students and provisional psychologists.
Rose has previously had careers in sales, wine marketing, and teaching HSIE and Agriculture at James Ruse Agricultural High School. Rose has four children (25, 22, 12 and 11), four chickens, two beagles and a husband. She enjoys pottering in the garden with her chickens (though she admits to having a black thumb), reading science fiction and fantasy and history books, bad 'Dad jokes' and is teaching herself how to knit booties for her upcoming grandchild and coding to make an app for her iPad (she is not very good at either - yet).
Therapies used: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Relaxation, Grounding, Meditation and Mindfulness.
