Crisis Counselling in
The Southern Highlands
Crises happen to everyone, and intervention can take many forms, from family helping and support strategies to professional counselling strategies aimed at helping the individual cope with the crisis in ways that reduce the negative psychological, physiological and behavioural effects of trauma on that person and his or her environment.
The purpose of crisis counselling is to deal with the person’s current status by dealing with a crisis. Chronic exposure to stress or trauma can lead to mental illness. Therefore, it is important that counsellors have the skills and knowledge to help clients cope with their current stressors and trauma. Crisis counselling is not intended to provide psychotherapy or similar services but offers a short-term intervention to help clients receive assistance, resources, stabilisation, and support.
Crisis counselling is a specialty area, and Dr Alyse can offer crisis counselling quickly after a critical incident to get people experiencing trauma back on the healing track.
