Positive Mental Health

Our capacity to adapt to change, respond to challenges, and recover from illness has a significant influence on our quality of life. Stress, anxiety, and depression touch many of our lives at one time or another. Quality of life can also be undermined by more pervasive personality based patterns that influence the way we filter our experience. At 4life Psychology we work with you to develop personalised approaches to the treatment of psychological distress. Our Clinical Psychologists can partner with you to improve your mental health.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are often manifested initially as physical ailments rather than the classic symptom of altered mood. Accurate diagnosis coupled with evidence-based treatment have been shown to support recovery. Our goal is to equip our clients with practical skills and strategies to manage their difficulties. An average course of treatment ranges from between 4-16 consultations scheduled weekly or fortnightly. Our treatments are delivered by clinical psychologists who have specialist, postgraduate university training in psychological assessment and therapy.

Child & Family

Nothing is more exemplary of the power of influence as the socialisation of our children. However, in an ever changing world, greater demands on our time and less certainty of what the future brings, parenting is becoming more challenging than ever. Our highly qualified and experienced staff at 4life psychology, can help children, parents/carers and teachers identify stress, develop coping strategies and build resilience.

Body Dissatisfaction and Eating Concerns

Living a value-driven life that balances our relationships, career, leisure and health would be the objective of most people. Our identity and self-worth have a big impact on our ability to function positively within these key areas. How we perceive our appearance can be a significant component of low self-esteem, and dissatisfaction with our appearance can drive a number of problematic behaviours. At the 4Life Psychology Centre, we work with individuals who want to improve their relationship with their body, overcome disordered eating, and redefine health beyond just physicality.

Group Treatment Programs

Our group therapy programs provide a warm and supportive environment to share and learn from others in a similar situation. By sharing experiences, relating to others in a similar situation, and sharing strategies for success, participants can feel more supported and less isolated. Each small group will be led by one of our highly qualified psychologists, with particular experience and aptitude in facilitating helpful and positive group discussions.
Group therapy offers an economical and highly effective method of treatment for a range of recovery and development needs. If you are looking for an affordable way to approach your challenges, or maintain results of individual treatment, our groups may be ideal for you.
Currently we offer group programs to support the treatment of anxiety and depression. Please contact us for more information. Medicare Rebates for eligible participants are available for all our workshops. For more information regarding eligibility, please select the workshop that interests you.

Talent Developement and Recovery

Optimal performance in life and in work is never constant. Increasing the speed of recovery from life challenges is critical in minimising the health, social, and occupational costs that result when we become overwhelmed by the situational demands of our work life. When under extreme pressure our risk of ‘career derailment’ increases. We can help you develop clear and context sensitive strategies to recover from setbacks, clarify your vocational goals, and better manage workplace challenges.

Executive Coaching

Our Coaching is focused on the attainment of realistic yet stretching goals that are grounded in professional and personal need. Our expertise in facilitating behavioural change is drawn from the fields of both clinical and business psychology, giving us experience and expertise in modifying and enhancing a wide range of human behaviours. As psychologists we have the advantage of being able to strategically use a broad range of psychometric tools to enhance the feedback and coaching provided to our clients. Our coaching process comprises of three broad phases:

img
Assessment
The assessment phase is about establishing both an accurate baseline of performance and identifying relevant coaching objective. This process is often assisted by a 360-feedback tool and a personality-based measure. The 360 feedback captures performance relevant data from key stakeholders whilst the information from self-report personality measures such as the Hogan Assessment Series enables a better understanding of identity, strengths, values, motivations, areas for development, blind spots and potential derailers.

Observing & Understanding Behaviour
Coaching consultations provide a context for development of greater insight. Findings from the preceding assessment phase are explored and personal strengths and opportunities for change are identified. An emphasis is placed on maintaining and, where possible, making even greater use of personal strengths. In addition. Learned behaviours and habits are also explored with respect to performance. Such behaviour often extends beyond the workplace to lifestyle and personal wellbeing. Finally, potential detailers and weakness are explored to better manage professional personal risk. The client is encouraged to reduce the need to operate in areas of weakness.

Action Implementation & Review
Moving from insight to action requires courage and focus. It is the coach’s role to ensure that the client is positioned within a ‘window of tolerance’ in their ‘development pathway’. This requires that development strategies are sequenced appropriately to ensure that the client is stretched but not overwhelmed. This process provides the balance of challenge and support necessary for individuals to develop and function at their optimal level.

Three-way collaboration

Coaching in a corporate context is often a three-way collaboration between the coach, the client, and the manager or sponsor. Three-way meetings ensure that coaching objectives and goals are aligned with organisational performance.

 

Flexible coaching delivery options

We adapt the way we deliver programs to suit your needs through either face to face or virtual consultations.

 

Strengths-based approach

Our coaches model a strengths-based approach to successfully tap into the client’s interest, self-worth, energy, motivation and action. Clients learn to harness their strengths to manage barriers to the realisation of full potential and productivity.

Vocational & Career Development

There is growing recognition that career development skills can help individuals to meet the changing needs of the labour market and thus maintain their employability. Most people need support to help them take advantage of opportunities that present throughout their career. Consultants on our team that specialise in business psychology have both the expertise and tools to provide assistance to individuals looking to change direction seeking support in realising their full potential within a chosen career path.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)

The implementation of an Employee Assistance Service (EAS) will enable management to provide employees with confidential psychological support and intervention when required. The benefits of an EAS program are numerous and include reduced staff turnover and greater productivity. Our EAP service offers confidential assessment and counselling service in off-site, confidential surrounds on a sessional basis. We are also available for on-site consultation when required.

Goodness of Fit
We are a Brisbane based business that does not have any satellite arrangements with providers in other states. We therefore cannot provide national coverage. The EAP services we offer are ideally suited to small to medium sized Brisbane based businesses that are looking for an outstanding level of service without the expense of having to sign up for a ‘capped program’. Our psychologists have specialist training in psychology that is well in advance of the industry standard with expertise across a broad range of area’s including: critical incident debriefing, relationship issues, conflict resolution, executive coaching, and mental health issues. We can offer your employees extended care arrangements at little to no additional cost by transitioning the service from the employer to Medicare or a Private Health insurance provider when the clients needs extend the number of sessions provided by the employer.

Relationships

Our senior team members have completed the STAP program and are accredited to provide clinical supervision to Psychologists. Dr Wade Jacklin has been providing supervision to Clinical Masters Students at Griffith University for the past five years. If you are interested in obtaining supervision from us for as part of your registration requirements or for professional development purposes contact us to obtain more information.

Functional Health

Functional medicine is an interdisciplinary field that uses established quantitative analysis methods to assess relationships between nutritional status, neurotransmitters, endocrine and immune function, and psychological symptoms.

 More about Sarah

Natural and Nutritional medicine has always been my passion. Helping, healing and educating patients comes naturally to me. Helping, healing and educating patients comes naturally to me.

I believe it is of great importance to provide clients with tools to understand what the root cause of their illness is and how they can take steps to achieve the best possible health outcome with minimal intervention by bridging the gap between Orthodox medicine and natural treatment solutions.

The body’s biochemical orchestra has always fascinated me and I deeply care in assisting patients in piecing information together to get an accurate health picture. It is very important to me, that clients feel that they have a trustworthy and compassionate health care provider in me. Confidentiality, appreciation and regard for my patients are a priority for me.

My training involved studies in Switzerland (Paracelsus clinic, Switzerland) and Australia. I have attended several medicine congresses in Germany focused on the treatment of bacterial and viral infection and immune rehabilitation.

My approach to patient rehabilitation entails functional pathology testing which aids a better client and practitioner involvement and understanding of the underlying cause of the health condition.

In my 7 years of private clinical practice I have treated hundreds of patients for metabolic and hormonal imbalances using natural medicine to achieve optimal health. I specifically focus on treating women pre- and post-conception as well as through and after Menopause in my clinic.

- Clinical Psychologist

James is motivated and passionate about helping and supporting individuals. James has had several years of experience dealing with a diverse range of problems, in both counselling and psychological settings.


 More about James

Nov 28, 2014 James is motivated and passionate about helping and supporting individuals. James has had several years of experience dealing with a diverse range of problems, in both counselling and psychological settings. He enjoys working with, and is experienced in adults suffering with depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship difficulties, sleeping difficulties, grief and loss, self-esteem and body image. His approach to therapy is focused on creating a supportive, non-judgmental and collaborative environment to facilitate change and growth. James has special interest in working with individuals with self-esteem and motivational difficulties. James has recently completed his PhD in Clinical Psychology, with a research focus on adults with learning difficulties. James’ says about taking the first step… “It has been my clinical experience, as well as being indicated in the literature, that people come to therapy as a last resort. They have often experienced years of frustrations, problems, and distress, for which they have tried multiple strategies and problem-solving techniques, to overcome or avoid issues faced in life. Unfortunately, it is often the case that one becomes stuck in this process, which only leads to more negative feelings, such as being inadequate, frustrated and/or defeated. The problem with life issues and difficulties is that it is very difficult to see the root of the problem from within. Its like a fish trying to describe the shape of his fishbowl – as an outsider one can identify the shape of the fishbowl, however, if you’re the fish, describing the shape becomes so much harder – all you can do is swim around and bang your head against invisible walls (sound familiar?).

Overall, they found that by three-months follow-up, all children were free of their primary diagnosis of GAD and over half were completely diagnosis free.

Choosing a ‘good enough’ psychologist or therapist

Mar 24, 2015

The therapy relationship

Many of the most challenging emotional issues we face come about in the context of relationships with others. It is also true that recovery from toxic interpersonal experiences usually occurs through a therapeutic social exchange.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety and depression are often manifested initially as physical ailments rather than the classic symptom of altered mood. Accurate diagnosis coupled with evidence-based treatment have been shown to support recovery. Our goal is to equip our clients with practical skills and strategies to manage their difficulties. An average course of treatment ranges from between 4-16 consultations scheduled weekly or fortnightly. Our treatments are delivered by clinical psychologists who have specialist, postgraduate university training in psychological assessment and therapy.

Child & Family

Nothing is more exemplary of the power of influence as the socialisation of our children. However, in an ever changing world, greater demands on our time and less certainty of what the future brings, parenting is becoming more challenging than ever. Our highly qualified and experienced staff at 4life psychology, can help children, parents/carers and teachers identify stress, develop coping strategies and build resilience.

Body Dissatisfaction and Eating Concerns

Living a value-driven life that balances our relationships, career, leisure and health would be the objective of most people. Our identity and self-worth have a big impact on our ability to function positively within these key areas. How we perceive our appearance can be a significant component of low self-esteem, and dissatisfaction with our appearance can drive a number of problematic behaviours. At the 4Life Psychology Centre, we work with individuals who want to improve their relationship with their body, overcome disordered eating, and redefine health beyond just physicality.

Group Treatment Programs

Our group therapy programs provide a warm and supportive environment to share and learn from others in a similar situation. By sharing experiences, relating to others in a similar situation, and sharing strategies for success, participants can feel more supported and less isolated. Each small group will be led by one of our highly qualified psychologists, with particular experience and aptitude in facilitating helpful and positive group discussions.

Group therapy offers an economical and highly effective method of treatment for a range of recovery and development needs. If you are looking for an affordable way to approach your challenges, or maintain results of individual treatment, our groups may be ideal for you.

Currently we offer group programs to support the treatment of anxiety and depression. Please contact us for more information. Medicare Rebates for eligible participants are available for all our workshops. For more information regarding eligibility, please select the workshop that interests you.

Medicare & Private Health Rebates

Better Access Initiative 

Medicare rebates of $84.80 – $124.50 per session, for 10 sessions per calendar year are available for psychology sessions under this initiative for services concerning mental-health (i.e., anxiety, depression, eating-related).

Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDM)

A rebate under a CDM is available for clients with a chronic (or terminal) medical condition. A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer. The CDM entitles clients to a rebate of $52.95 per session for 5 consultations per calendar year and is available for use with our psychologists, dieticians, and/or exercise physiologists.

Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA)

All of our practitioners are registered providers for the department of veteran affairs. With a DVA gold card, session fees are at no cost to the client.

Private Health Insurance

Our HICAPS electronic claims facility means clients with private health insurance are able to obtain their rebate (depending on their level of cover) at the time of appointment.

Medicare Safety Net

Clients are encouraged to register for the Medicare Safety Net, which is designed to protect high users of health services from large out-of-pocket expenses. *Out of pocket costs is the difference between the Medicare benefit and what your doctor charges you. Schedule fee is a fee for service set by the Australian Government. Gap amount is the difference between the Medicare benefit and the schedule fee. EMSN is the Extended Medicare Safety Net.

My experience of watching and learning from some outstanding psychologists has reinforced that some psychologists have an outstanding capacity, beyond that of many others, to facilitate change in the clients they work with. I have watched Michael Yapko for example, facilitate profound change in a client’s life through the work done in one session. Clearly, there are some psychologists that have an acute aptitude for the practice of psychology. It is also true that you can get what you need from therapy as long as the person you are working with has sufficient knowledge and expertise with your particular area of need.

Research in the area of therapy outcomes has indicated that the experience and training of the psychologist will make a difference to the length of time it takes to achieve results from the process. As no therapist is ‘perfect’ and all therapists will make small mistakes working with you, the main objective is to ensure that you are working with a ‘good enough therapist’, somebody who is good enough to assist you with getting where you need to go in life. Unfortunately, like any profession there are a few ‘not good enough’ psychologists out there whose practice should be confined to behavioural experiments with rats and mice. It is this small group of psychologists that can actually confound and complicate your efforts to develop and grow.

The ‘not good enough therapist’

One characteristic that ‘toxic’ psychologists often share is their conscious or unconscious use of therapy to meet their own needs in some way. Clearly, if the psychologist is using the session you are paying for to meet his or her needs the process is unlikely to be helpful to you and may even cause significant harm. Some of the warning signs that might indicate that your therapist is ‘not good enough’ might include:

• not listening to what you are saying
• get angry with you
• act in a judgmental way toward you
• not providing an adequate explanation for the suggestion or suggestions they make
• having expectations of you that do not seem appropriate
• seeking to become part of your life outside the therapy process
• not clearly contracting with you regarding the nature of the service provided
• betraying either your confidential information or the confidential information of others to you

Other considerations

Perhaps the best means of determining if your psychologist is ‘good enough’ is to trust your intuition. If something feels very off to you than it is worth making some further investigations about the process you are involved in. Generally, the best place for advice and assistance is the Australian Psychological Society (APS). This is the representative body for Psychologists and exists in part to provide quality assurance to consumers of services offered by Psychologists. All psychologists are required to abide by a ‘code of ethics’ that provides a working definition for ‘good enough’ practice as a psychologist. The APS will be happy to give you a direct indication if the behaviour of your psychologist is in contradiction with the ‘code of ethics’. The APS can also seek to take disciplinary action against a psychologist who is deemed to be acting outside the ‘code of ethics’.

As with any discipline there are a number of specific fields within psychology. Clinical psychologists, for example, have specific training and expertise in the treatment of a wide range of emotional and behavioural problems. As a consumer you can feel secure in the knowledge that consulting a clinical psychologist about issues pertaining to mental health (that might include: anxiety, depression, adjustment to life change, trauma)   you will be guided through an intervention process that has been supported and validated through research to be effective for your particular concern.

If you are unsure of what type of psychologist would be best to assist you then I would recommend that you contact the Australian psychological Society for advice. The APS offers a free service to consumers via their Web site www.psychology.org.au that will enable you to connect with a psychologist in your local area that can provide the type of service you require.

Within the area of Clinical Psychology therapists will vary in their training and experience for specific treatment areas. It is therefore always advisable when seeking treatment to ask for a referral to a psychologist with specialist training and experience in your area of need. For example, if you’re seeking marital counselling then it is important to engage a psychologist with specific training and experience in this area. On a personal level it is also important that you engage a psychologist that you’re going to feel comfortable with. You may have a preference for the gender of the psychologist, working with somebody who is of a similar age to you, or who shares a similar sexual orientation. While there is no evidence to suggest that factors such as age, gender, sexual orientation, and personality have any bearing on the outcome of the therapy process, it is certainly true that your comfort, confidence, and trust in person you’re working with will influence the outcome of your therapy. For this reason I would suggest that you approach your initial therapy session as an opportunity to assess the therapists capacity to be helpful to you. After the session take a few minutes to critically appraise your experience against some basic criteria before committing to the process.

Assumptions About Effective Living

Jul 18, 2014

Almost all things have the capacity to be both helpful and unhelpful depending on their intensity, context and timing – Connecting with feelings can be helpful when touching a loved one, but unhelpful at tax time when focussing on how you feel would distract you from getting an important job done.

Thinking about the future is not helpful when at the theatre or movies, however is helpful when making a decisions at the grocery store about what food to buy for the week etc. This assumption also applies to all of the strategies outlined in this guide.

Knowing what strategies and response to apply in a particular situation requires a clear understanding of your objective   

Often our responses to situations are not governed by what is important to us. This happens when we get stuck in the ‘small picture’ of our lives and lose focus or forget what we really, really, really want. Take, for example, the ending of a bad relationship. Most people accept that we will most likely need to have at least a few relationship experiences before you meet somebody who we appraise through experience and reflection to be suitable to invest in a long-term relationship with.  Knowing when to end something is a very important skill, how do you know when the right time is to end a relationship? The answer to this question lies in your ability to connect to the ‘bigger picture’ of your life and the grounded understanding of what you want to achieve. When the behaviour of a partner clearly conflicts with your values and future objectives it may be time to end the relationship. This is a decision driven by our ‘big picture’ perspective regarding what actions are required in your present life to maintain alignment with personal values and future objectives.

Having a wide range of ways to respond to feelings, thoughts, and situations is only half the story, being able to determine which strategy to apply and when to apply it is also important          

Having a clear understanding of what our values and ‘big picture’ objectives are and using them to inform our choices about what strategies to select and how to apply them is the whole picture. So therapy is about helping you develop a clearer understanding of your ‘big picture’ and to learn and apply strategies that assist you to stay in alignment with it. It is the orientation to values and the big picture that sits across both therapy and coaching.

The experience of psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress is not abnormal

You are truly not alone in your experience of pain and suffering. In 1997, a sample of the Australian general population was surveyed about their mental health and wellbeing (survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics). It was estimated that around 1 in 6 people in this survey (18%) had experienced one or more mental disorders in the past 12 months, with 1 in 10 experiencing an anxiety disorder and 1 in 17 experiencing depression of some kind. Lifetime prevalence rates for any kind of psychological disorder have been estimated to affect nearly half the population and are steadily rising.

Bear in mind that in addition to those who have a diagnosable mental illness, many Australians may experience a mental health problem. For example, they might feel very down without having the full range of symptoms which would lead to a diagnosis. Thus, based on this information it would seem reasonable to conclude that the experience of significant psychological distress is more common than not.

Dynamic factors account for much of our psychological pain and suffering  

While our genetics and history are certainly contribute to the psychological pain and suffering we experience (static factors), there is growing evidence to suggest that the way we interact and manage distress in the ‘here and now’ (dynamic factors) may be the primary source of human suffering.  Take happiness for example, genetic science has concluded that how happy we are is 50% determined by our genes, 20% by our circumstances (eg, walking on a beach versus working in the office) and 30% determined by our orientation or outlook. So when it comes happiness it is true that some have to do less to achieve it but that regardless of our set point for happiness we can all influence our orientation and to some extent our circumstances.

It is our use of language that exacerbates pain and suffering    

Special properties of human language generate suffering among humans over and above the suffering of nonhuman species. The possession of language alone will produce suffering. It is language that enables humans to engage and learn from our experiences in far more sophisticated ways than any other species on the planet. It is for this reason that, despite our limited physical attributes, we have, as a species, been able to dominate the planet. Because of language we do not need to learn from concrete experience alone.

I can learn to avoid a certain street in my neighbourhood because of an experience somebody else shared with me about something bad that happened to them on that street. Because of language I can then extrapolate further and avoid other streets that have similar properties to the one in the story (no street lights, a long way from the centre of the city, etc.). In this story my behaviour has been influenced by language (the story itself) and then by the linguistic skills that enabled me to use the information contained in the story to avoid other streets with similar properties. Unlike other species, I did not have to experience the negative event in order to learn from it.

Due to our unique capacity to establish events in our mind with language, we are capable of generating a negative emotional experience without a physical cue. Take death for example, people and animals take action every day to avoid this eventuality. However, it is only humans that are inclined to avoid thoughts of death. Language is a double-edged sword, on the one hand it has provided us with a unique capacity that separates us form all other life on the planet and has enabled us to rise to position of ultimate supremacy, on the other, it drastically exacerbates our suffering and pain. Removal of suffering from human experience would only be possible if the our capacity for language was removed (Hayes, 2004).

Patterns of avoidance are highly problematic      

Continued efforts to avoid experiencing thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations that result from our experience keep us stuck and unable to move forward. The management of aversive private events can consume our lives.  In order to live with purpose and meaning we need to learn to accept and manage the pain and suffering that is an inevitable part of life.
