Burnout – Jim Adsett

Jim Adsett   Quals: B Psych (Hons)

Burnout:  The key features of burnout are exhaustion, lack of motivation and feeling like you aren’t making a difference. In a job it means you basically stop caring about what you do. For example workers in a customer service role no longer care about the people they are paid to be nice too.

Counselling Approach: My key message with burnout is prevention is better than cure. I teach people to develop an internal “burnout radar” that lets them know when they are approaching serious burnout. I use techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy and Cognitive behaviour therapy to help the client to make changes in their life.

Addictions – Jim Adsett

Jim Adsett   Quals: B Psych (Hons)

Addictions:  Alcohol, drugs, computer games, shopping, exercise.
Not all addictions are bad. People sometimes need help getting perspective on their addictions so they make a sensible decision.  The question to ask yourself is what am I avoiding. Do the costs to myself and my relationships outweigh the benefits.

Counselling Approach: Having worked for 10 years with substance abuse clients in various settings I have learned to use a variety of approaches to hand addictions. I use acceptance and commitment therapy and Cognitive behaviour therapy depending on a clients previous treatment experience and their readiness to change.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Substance Misuse – Jim Adsett

Jim Adsett   Quals: B Psych (Hons)

Substance Misuse:  Substance abuse rarely occurs without another underlying problem. The best way to approach this is to deal with all problems with the same psychologist. With 10 years experience in the substance abuse field, depression, anxiety, trauma and increasingly psychosis are part and parcel of the treatment approach.

Counselling Approach: Holistic, recovery based, client centered. Goal focused- harm minimization or abstinence being the two main goals. Depending on the clients preferences and previous experience, I use acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing and transactional analysis.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Fees: Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $180 hr and $220 initial appointment. Medicare and Health Rebates available. Reduced rates may be available, please call reception for details.

Practice Location: Suite 1, 16-18 Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road, Loganholme.

Social Anxiety – Jim Adsett

Jim Adsett   Quals: B Psych (Hons)

Social Anxiety:  “Should I go to that party?”
“There will be lots of people there that I don’t know. I will feel really anxious, maybe embarrass myself”
The vicious cycle of social anxiety revolves around inner conversations like this. If you don’t go to the party, then in the short term you don’t feel anxious, but in the long term it gets worse. You don’t meet new people, don’t practice talking to people, often feel ashamed of yourself for not going.

Counselling Approach: I use acceptance and commitment therapy and Cognitive behaviour therapy. I use a lot of humour in my sessions because being able to laugh at yourself is a really helpful skill when it comes to dealing with anxiety. I help people develop strategies to handle their anxiety in the short term so that they can break out of the cycle of social anxiety.

Current Availability: Usually within one week.

Fees: Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $180 hr and $220 initial appointment. Medicare and Health Rebates available. Reduced rates may be available, please call reception for details.
