‘The manner by which staff are handled during a crisis has an influence on recovery and rehabilitation.’

Organisational trauma is by its nature rare and unexpected. Trauma comes from the Greek word which means ‘pierce’.
A traumatic incident can pierce the psychological defences of employees and organisations resulting in high levels of distress, anxiety and disorientations. At Momentum Health and Development we will work alongside you to provide effective psychological help, information and support whilst you have to deal with operational, legal, health and safety psychological demands of responding professionally to all levels of the incident as it unfolds and develops.

Our Consultants are qualified and experienced in delivering clinically effective trauma interventions and therapies fit for the 21st century; they are qualified in National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence (NICE) approved trauma therapies such as EMDR.

We especially appreciate the multiple responsibilities and stresses leaders and managers face when dealing with traumatic events such as keeping the operation running whilst liaising with the Health & Safety Executive, the emergency services and other key stakeholders.

We make it a priority to ensure that your leaders and managers are provided with the most effective guidance, information and support. We deliver holistic interventions tailored to your organisation and the specifics of the incidents. We do not apply a ‘one size fits all approach’.

Whilst on site we can deliver:

Helpful briefings and leaflets for staff and management on how to cope, understand their reactions, enhance their resilience and get specialist help when needed. We ensure that loved ones and families are helped to understand the reactions of those affected.

We’ll do what’s needed and work adaptively with your organisational reality whether it’s to provide psychological first aid, defusing or critical incident debriefing. We work in person, by telephone and Skype.

In due course we deliver effective trauma counselling such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and EMDR or Trauma Focussed CBT in accordance with NICE guidelines.
