Rosemary Gonella

Mental Health Social Worker and Psychotherapist


I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with a Masters in Clinical Counselling, and began as a social worker with families that were homeless or at risk of homelessness before progressing to work in family violence and with those who have severe and enduring metal health. As such, I am practiced in working with people from diverse backgrounds, coming from all stages and walks of life. 

I have experience utilising many different therapeutic methods including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Motivational and Solution Focused approaches, and especially Trauma-Informed methods.
