Entrepreneurship – Vivian Jarrett

Psychology of EntrepreneurshipI have completed postgraduate studies in entrepreneurship at UQ in 2016 in order to expand my base of consultancy work to help small to medium sized businesses work through the start up process. Start ups require significant time and energy and the biggest barriers can be lack of information about business, and limits around the amount of hours and money available to resource your dream business. I prefer the working model of business to employment as I enjoy working my own hours and dictating my own Vision for the future.  I value emotional health, creativity, social entrepreneurship and new ways to sustain our society through socially responsible business ventures. I enjoy fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship in my practice of psychology.

Counselling Approach: My approach is to foster creativity, work with current skills while developing new skills.  There is an art to expanding an entrepreneurial team, especially once you have reached the limits of your time, money and skills. Successful ventures depend on working within the window opportunity and often beating competitors to the market. Expanding too fast or too slow can be detrimental to your business. Often business owners are a couple and the demands of family and the business sharing the same space can become daunting.  Managing the family issues can be just as important as managing the business demands.

Business Coaching: Most Australian’s have worked for a small or medium sized business at some stage. The Australian economy depends on small businesses succeeding. I am Director of a family run chain of Psychology Clinics in Brisbane, with 15+ staff and 50+ psychologists across two locations.  Most business owners are will at some point need to diversify their skills, add new people to their team, manage family in the business and work through a complex array of legal, tax, financial, website marketing and psychological barriers to maintain their market share and stability.

Counselling Approach: I have many years experience in different businesses including construction management, psychology and counselling, and in my early years fashion. I enjoy the entrepreneurial aspect to business and helping my clients achieve success through carefully assessing their skills and assets, and identifying and managing threats and pitfalls. I enjoy working with family businesses and seeing success for all involved.

Relationship Counselling – Vivian Jarrett

**Finalist Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2017 – Entrepreneur 

Relationship Counselling:  Relationships at home or work are the source of stress for most clients.  My preference is to work through issues by examining communication, conflict, social roles, confidence and life skills. Managing relationships effectively can lead to positive mental health and open opportunities for career development and general well-being.

Counselling Approach:  I enjoy working with interpersonal psychotherapy, solution focused strategies and occasionally narrative therapy. Most of my relationship counselling clients find that managing difficult relationships quickly reduces stress and improves mental health. Some clients will choose to negotiate relationships and others will end relationships and I support both options. Clients may attend by themselves or with their partner.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy – Vivian Jarrett

Interpersonal Psychotherapy:  Vivian has taught IPT in the Griffith University undergraduate program in the Bach of Behavioural Science and provides workshops on IPT for health professionals.

Counselling Approach:  Interpersonal psychotherapy is a very useful approach to managing mood disorders and relationship problems.  Most individuals will attend for counselling around relationships that are causing emotional distress.  IPT helps by diagnosing the emotional problem as being caused by life transitions, conflict, unresolved grief and inadequate social confidence.  IPT traditionally treats disorders like depression and anxiety over 6-12 sessions.  Vivian applies the principles in her day to day practice in combination with brief therapy approaches.

Bipolar Disorder – Vivian Jarrett

**Finalist Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2017 – Entrepreneur 

Bipolar Disorder:  Vivian has worked with adults with bipolar for over a decade and more recently has taught in the psychiatry program in QLD.  Vivian is able to give an opinion on diagnosis and management of bipolar disorder for Type 1 and Type 2 disorders.

Counselling Approach:  Bipolar disorder often requires a collaborative counselling approach which focuses on regulating social rhythms, sleep routine, diet and utilising social support effectively.  Professional support may include other health professionals like your GP, psychiatrist or case manager.  The use of counselling has been found to be more useful than medication alone.

Life Coaching – Vivian Jarrett

**Finalist Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2017 – Entrepreneur

Life Coaching: To achieve the most with our time is a challenge. Relationships, work, hobbies, habits, goals and barriers inevitably get in the way. It can be refreshing and spark creativity to talk about your  life, where you are going, where you have been and evaluate how to best overcome barriers. If you have become “stuck” then often it can be because your circle of support may not provide you with new ways of thinking and new strategies. If you are looking to enhance your life then life coaching may be something you try as a way to see if you are on track. As a psychologist I can offer research based information on what helps or hinders achieving life’s goals. All of life is a balancing act and getting that balance right takes time to master.

Counselling Approach: I enjoy hearing a person’s life story and working through what has been, to what is now and then working through what could be. Often I find that clients are unaware of some of the barriers that may prevent future success. Relationships, finances, skills, time and knowledge all can help or hinder just depending on your focus.

Narrative Therapy – Vivian Jarrett

**Finalist Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2017 – Entrepreneur

Narrative Therapy: is an approach that has been used by innovative therapists in Australian and New Zealand.  The Dulwich Centre in Adelaide is the birth place of narrative practice in Australia.  Narrative therapy is considered to be highly adaptive in counselling within indigenous, spiritual or culturally diverse contexts.

Counselling Approach: Vivian utilises Narrative Therapy in her day to day counselling as a innovative tool to explore life’s curious events and hurdles.  Exploring your life story can open new horizons and assist with rewriting your future.  The past has been lived chapter by chapter but the future is unwritten. With support our identity, our hopes and dreams are often disclosed in the same way that we might look through jewellery box of our family heirlooms.  Sometimes we are quick to discard the things that may be most valuable, or most treasured.

Christian Counselling – Vivian Jarrett

**Finalist Telstra Business Women’s Awards 2017 – Entrepreneur

Christian Counselling: Christian based counselling approaches are frequently requested when individuals are closely aligned with a particular faith or when they are considering changing or leaving a church. The Christian culture is often or primary importance when discussing the meaning of life, making important decisions, raising a family and dealing with life’s problems. I prefer to adults, although I do see children and adolescents with psychotic disorders such as bipolar.

Counselling Approach:  I have a solution focused approach to Christian or faith based counselling. Each individual will struggle with how their beliefs may differ with those of their church, their family and God. Often the way individuals think of God can be influenced by how they have been treated by others in their faith. It can be helpful to have a non-judgemental space to discuss the differences, and establish what is important to make positive change and regain control of life. I welcome individuals and couples to attend. I have additional expertise in Christian Sex Therapy for couples wanting to enhance intimacy.
