Confidential, Short-Term Counselling Services

Counselling is an opportunity for an employee to have a confidential conversation with an experienced counsellor. It is a time to talk freely, to discuss strategies, develop skills & gain information & advice to improve well-being & life satisfaction. Counselling should always begin with contacting our office.

We can also assist with proactive and preventive interventions to assist with identifying and resolving both work and personal problems that may adversely affect work performance and overall wellbeing.

On-Site Critical Incident Response

Critical Incidences usually occur in or around the workplace, they are unplanned events that impact a team or an individual.

They can include serious incidents which can leave a deep and lasting impression such as:

  • Robberies;
  • Fatalities;
  • Assaults;
  • Major accidents;
  • Natural disasters.

Depending upon how involved people are in the event, reactions can often differ widely depending on their personal history, personal health, and stress levels before the event occurred. We will deploy a team to come to you to provide on-site response counselling.

The purpose of engaging our on-site critical incident team is to promote safety for your team or the individual by providing a calm and comforting environment that enables the people/s to relax and debrief with our experienced incident team.

By the end of our response session, we aim to make sure the team or individual feels heard, connected and self-empowered.

Workplace Mediation

Practical and effective, this tool allows your employees to air and resolve workplace conflict and re-build working relationships. Mediation is voluntary, discussions are confidential, involving only those in dispute. An independent mediator ensures each participant is heard. We encourage those in dispute to engage in rational dialogue and work towards generating solutions.

What do people need after a critical incident?Read MoreRead Less

Reactions can often differ widely depending on a whole selection of personal circumstances, it is important to identify what your team or individual employee needs after an incident occurs.

We have identified a few key things people need after a critical incident:

We know that people need to talk to someone about their experience, we recommend this person be one of our trained counsellors. Having someone who is experienced listen to them allows for immediate support to be given appropriately.

  • People need someone to care. This can be done by anyone. A warm drink, a warm blanket, a smile or even an appropriate hug can be helpful to those who have just experienced an incident.
  • Someone to really listen, not just talk at them. Listening and using active listening & understanding skills. Anyone can help listen to what they have to say, having one of our trained counsellors listen can help to make sure that your team or individual is heard appropriately, and immediate support can be appropriately.
  • Someone to lean on or cry on. Be there for that person. Be kind to them, silence is okay, don’t judge them, just be there for them.
