Congratulations to our Director and Founder, Vivian Jarrett, on being a Finalist in the 2017 Telstra Business Women’s Awards Qld – Entrepreneur category.
Vivian has long been passionate about making mental health more accessible. The model she has developed here at Vision Psychology, and also our sister clinic M1 Psychology at Loganholme, is completely different to anything previously available.
One of the advantages of this model is that it offers more flexibility for practitioners as well as clients – for example, with appointments available on the weekends. One business colleague has called it “the Uber of the psychology world”!
Since gaining her registration as a psychologist in 2008, Vivian has been involved in managing and supervising NHMRC projects at Griffith University, published in international journals and more recently completed a postgrad certificate at UQ in the Business School.
It has not always been an easy journey. As Vivian explains:
“My passion for business and innovation has led me to be at odds with conservative healthcare models. Times are changing and we need to move to more flexible workplaces and healthcare delivery … Technology and innovation means Google is seen to be a good place to find health information, with most people looking online before seeing a health practitioner. I believe we need to embrace our future, and find new ways to help our community, our country, the world.”
Vivian offers business coaching and non-Medicare related services such as psychotherapy supervision, training and public speaking. Enquiries to: Kaitlyn on 0431 283 845 for details on availability and fees, or to find out more about Telstra Business Women’s Award Finalist, Vivian Jarrett, head to her website.
As Australia’s largest Psychology Clinic, it’s no surprise that Vision Psychology is being recognised as a leader in quality mental health care, and a trusted source of information to the media.
