Know Paige

Paige Rosekilly is a dedicated Psychologist with an aspiration to reduce stigmas, encouraging a greater understanding and awareness of mental health in the wider community. Warm & approachable, Paige’s friendly nature puts you at ease right from the start. She brings a very authentic and respectful presence to her sessions, relishing the support she gives individuals across all ages and a multitude of mental health difficulties. Bringing humour and compassion to what can be overwhelming issues, Paige is a believer that every individual has personal strengths to live their life meaningfully. She sees herself as the guide to helping clients identify those strengths, and works collaboratively to develop a ‘support toolbox’ for clients, enabling them to engage when exposed to unforeseen challenges.

Growing up within a blended family in South Africa, Paige observed many family members on their mental health journeys. Although challenging, these experiences facilitated her skill building in understanding and listening to alternate points of view; engaging in problem-solving; and developing a strong sense of empathy for those she cared for. Her personal experiences led her to become a carer, equipping Paige to always look for the strengths and uniqueness in each and every person. She developed resilience and knew that psychology was a path to help people live meaningful lives, whilst not being defined by their mental health outcomes.

Paige’s Experience & Approach

Paige ensures she is attentive and authentic in her therapy sessions, bringing a neutral, non-judgemental and patient stance. Understanding and reflective, she provides clients with structure and clarity around what a therapy session may look like. She believes therapy is about the present moment and what someone is experiencing in that moment, therefore is flexible within her sessions, personalising them to each situation and the client’s immediate needs.

Her approach is client-centred and strength-based, always focussing on the client’s core needs, and safeguarding that they feel heard safe and empowered to advocate their needs.

As an experienced Psychologist at Creating Change, Paige combines a Master of Clinical Psychology, an Advanced Graduate Diploma in Psychology, and a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) degrees. Her training includes Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), using evidence-based treatment modalities to tailor support her sessions to each client’s needs.

Passion

Paige works collaboratively across all ages, with a particular interest in young adults transitioning to adulthood, and life transitions for older adults. She has a real appreciation to support parents with young and primary school aged children with the challenges that parenting brings. Her experience extends to working with both children and adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

Growing up she thrived off connection with others and has a strong desire to support those around her to be a part of a bigger purpose. Her level of expertise is evident in the broad range of presentations she treats: generalised & social anxiety, OCD, parenting support, phobias, life transitions, depression, adjustment disorders, PTSD, trauma, stress & study stress, low-self esteem and emotional regulation. 

Known For

Graduating from Macquarie, Monash and Newcastle Universities, Paige has a desire to engage with local communities and to drive to improve public policy through research and evaluation. She has completed training in the polyvagal theory, believing that this is an interesting area of research that fits well with EMDR in the context of trauma related disorders.

On a Personal Level
