This includes Conflict Resolution, Critical Incident Management and Traumatic Event Debriefing, Employee Assistance Services, Professional Debriefing, Staff counselling, Stress Management, and workshops tailored to your needs.

 

Employee Assistance Services

Employee Assistance Services are support services provided to staff within the workplace.

Potential Self services are designed to offer counselling and support to assist individuals to

cope with concerns that affect them in the workplace, but also to maintain health in

stressing environments by offering debriefing and reflection opportunities in a safe and

healthy way. The counselling is provided in a confidential non judgemental environment away

from the workplace location.

Employee Assistance Services let your staff know you care. The services have been found to enhance the workplace environment by reducing employee stress and absenteeism and enhancing staff resilience and productivity.

 

Critical Incident Management

What are critical incidents?

Critical incidents are any extraordinary and unexpected circumstances that has the potential

to cause a traumatic reaction
.

Critical Incident Stress Management is designed to help people deal with their trauma one

incident at a time, by allowing them to talk about the incident when it happens without judgment or criticism. 

 

All interventions are strictly confidential, the only caveat to this is if the person doing the intervention determines that the person being helped is a danger to themselves or to others. The emphasis is always on keeping people safe and returning them quickly to more normal levels of functioning.
 

Potential Self can provide the continuity of care by continuing support options where needed. This can be accessed either through several ways such as Medicare, Private Health, Workers Compensation or with support from the employers Employee Assistance Services.
