What can William help you with?

People enter counselling for many reasons, usually to manage a work or home related stressor, to reflect on how they are managing in the world or to process struggles they have in their life.

Counselling is confidential and rightly so. Therapy gives people a safety to ensure they can talk freely and explore their world.

As a forensic psychologist, William can offer clinical work support around risk management, working with resistance clients and stakeholders, reviewing safety plans and general best practice.

In addition to the above, specific topics for often addressed with frontline staff include:

  • Proactive / planned self-care
  • Vicarious trauma in the workplace
  • Counselling
  • Working with resistance in clients

Adding to the above, topics relevant to Managers, Team Leaders and Coordinators include:

  • Leadership development
  • Using reflective practice
  • Courageous conversations
  • Wellbeing for staff

What types of sessions are available?

Individual sessions usually go from 40 to 60 mins and involve exploring and processing the issues faced.

Group sessions are longer (usually 2 to 3 hours) and allow for group reflection as the staff are the experts in their field.

In these sessions, William provides safe and curious facilitation of the group to identify clinical and personal issues that may bebarriers to effective and positive work practices.

What does the counselling look like?

Counselling involves processes, exploring and reflecting and reframing issues. This is a strength-based process looking at how we can better manager environments, interactions, and our reactions.
