Trauma counselling & critical incident debriefing
If a traumatic incident occurs in your workplace,
we will be there to help you and your people deal
with its effects.
What is Trauma Assistance?
When an accident, workplace injury, death, or robbery occurs in the workplace, most people experience emotions including shock, confusion, pain, sorrow and anguish. Nearly everyone involved will have their thoughts consumed with the incident, making concentrating on work near impossible. Immediate Trauma Assistance can reduce the impact of the traumatic event, help speed the process of returning to normal functioning, and reduce the likelihood of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Our consultants can provide support for those people needing urgent counselling or debriefing when a traumatic event has occurred.
One of our Psychologists will determine the degree to which
a person may be suffering, by assessing a number of variables. The Psychologist will take into account the emotions, physical reactions and the behavioural effects that the individual is sustaining, before assisting in helping the person to develop effective and ongoing coping skills.
Following a critical incident debriefing, those people identified as being particularly affected by the traumatic incident can benefit enormously from trauma counselling.
A few sessions of trauma counselling can ensure minimum psychological impact and therefore minimum time off work.
