Christian Counselling – Vivian Jarrett

Vivian Jarrett    Quals: B Psych (hons), GCert Res Com, MAPS, MAICD

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.

Current Availability: Appointments are available week days and after hours. Limited availability at Loganholme.

Fees: $260 for initial appointment, $220 thereafter. Medicare and health refunds may apply. Bartercard clients are welcome.
