Redundancy Counselling

Flexible structures and the continuing trends in organisational to down-size.  Have made redundancy programmes a far too common aspect of Human Resource.   David & Rebecca, are able to cushion the blow and show an acceptable and humane face of management.  In what must be one of the most difficult personnel management situations.

Workplace Mediation

We appreciate and understand the challenges of how personal issues can have such a major impact on our work.  Resulting in absence or distraction. This of course adds up to a cost to an organisation’s bottom line.  Not just in hours lost, but in loss of productivity or engagement. One visit is often enough in resolving conflict in the Workplace Mediation.   It doesn’t have to be expensive.  Plus it’s a powerful tool for a company to draw upon, when communications breakdown.

Critical Incident Stress Debriefing

Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) is a specific, 7-phase, small group, supportive crisis intervention process. This effective defusing or debriefing procedure helps  normalise the often overwhelming psychological, physiological and emotional responses to minor, moderate and severe critical incidents.

As trained CISD facilitators, we recognise the impacts of critical incidents on employees’ levels of distress and the impacts it may have on being able to perform their role effectively or attend work. CISD is designed to enhance employees wellbeing and minimise impacts of critical  incident  stress  and promote wellbeing and recovery.

“Critical incident stress debriefing  is  a method  of  mitigating  the  harmful  effects  of  work-related  trauma,  and ultimately preventing  P.T.S.D.   –  Jeffrey  T.  Mitchell  Ph.D.
