Crisis Counselling provides brief and effective help for those in need of urgent help
Crisis counselling and management is intended to be brief. It is not the same as ongoing psychotherapy. Providing support for individuals, couples or families using interventions that focus on helping navigate the stress of an event by enhancing coping skills and resources and providing emotional and psychological support.
Crisis counselling involves careful assessment of the situation, planning, strategising and focusing on the client’s immediate situation, such as needs and safety. Clients who seek counselling for personal or professional crises may need a more robust form of support. This may include extra sessions or extended time until the situation is resolved, or they are feeling more resilient and better able to cope without the help of mental health professional.
