The services we offer

Group consultation or supervision

Group consultation or supervision can be provided by one of our trauma experts for a group of work colleagues or people who work with similar clients, such as sexual assault survivors or veterans (6 session minimum). Ideally, a small group of around 4 to 8 will enable you to benefit from the experiences of others whilst allowing sufficient time for individual attention. Please contact us to discuss your needs.


Organisational consultation

We can provide a tailored mix of consultation services, including individual and group, and secondary and tertiary, consultations. We have found that small groups of around 4 to 8 staff are most effective. We can recommend a trainer whose skills and experience will be most suited to address your needs. We have experience in working with and supporting a range of organisations and services, including sexual assault, mental health, veteran, community health, disaster response, youth and homeless services. If you are interested, please contact us to discuss your needs.
