Our counseling philosophy is not to deal with clients lived experience of loss and grief but to work with clients to lessen their grief pain as much as possible.
Have you got problems at home, work or school?
Do you feel overwhelmed?
Do you sometimes feel worried, afraid, panicky, angry, guilty or miserable for what seems to be no good reason?
Do you feel you have you lost your confidence, self-esteem or faith in your own abilities or trust in others?
Are you under pressure from a relationship, separation or family breakdown?
Are you struggling with drug or alcohol problems?
Do you sometimes want to smash things, or feel like hurting your self or others, or have suicidal thoughts?
Is a loved one dying or has died?
For 25 years the Australian Institute for Loss and Grief's counseling services have helped many individuals and families across Adelaide and regional South Australia.
Rosemary has gained extensive experience and wisdom from many years of working with complex and not so complex experiences of client's loss and grief, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal.
The Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief was developed as a result of how she transformed her own inter-generational suppressed unresolved grief that compounded and complicated her contemporary losses and suppressed unresolved grief and she became conscious of what to grieve for; where to grieve; when to grieve; how to grieve and why it's important and in so doing, it sustains her social and emotional well-being. Rosemary's Seven Phases model is uniquely applied with respect and responsibly as each clients lived experience is uniquely theirs. The model has proven successfully with the following groups:
Individuals, couples, families
Children and young people with support and guidance from parents/carers/other professionals
Long term unemployed
Employed who are finding they are stuck in a rut or 'misplaced' motivation at work or home or having trouble separating the two (EAP)
Rosemary works with private clients as well as people referred to her by government and non-government agencies. (Government agencies and NGOs please note that funding must accompany clients being referred.)
Appointments are between 9am & 5pm, Monday to Friday or outside those times by arrangement. Counselling sessions can be up to 2 hours. Fees are based on an hourly rate. Venue for counselling can be flexible. Please ring for an appointment.
The Institute understands and values the concerns of confidentiality, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We go above and beyond the ‘call of duty’ to value and respect your confidentiality.
