You find yourself in high stake, high stress emergency environments every single day. You’ll see and experience a lot during your career. It’s not always easy to know what to do with the thoughts, feelings and memories that come with the territory. You may even feel that you have nowhere to turn to when you need to process these things, leading you to try and suppress your emotions and thoughts – hardly the ingredients to a long, successful and stable career.
For all that you do for us, you deserve the best care and support.
That’s why we’ve created a space for you, our society’s heroes. At YTherapy, we’re here to help you so you can continue to help those who need it the most.
Asking for help is one of the biggest steps you can take as an individual. And we’re ready when you’re ready.
Find joy in your work again. Express your thoughts and feelings in a safe space, and get back to feeling like you again.
As part of your duty of care, you may want to implement professional mental health support as part of your EAP.
We’ll be more than happy to help you and your team to get back on your feet, stronger and more resilient than ever.
Whether you’re a front line health worker, firefighter, police officer or prison officer, you’ve made a commitment to helping people in need and keeping our community safe.
It can be hard asking for, and accepting support when you’re the one tasked with helping others.
But what about what you need?
Like any other workplace, if your mental health is impacting your ability to enjoy your job – It’s time to take action.
If your mental health is being impacted by the things you see, hear and do as part of your job, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Counselling can help.
YTherapy offers a range of mental health support for emergency services staff.
Working together, we’ll look at how you’re personally impacted and how you’re coping. With our mind & body approach to mental health and wellness, we’ll help you get to the root of your challenges and equip you with tools to build your resilience.
Working in the emergency services, you’ll know how it feels to manage adrenaline. In fact, it’s one of the things that helps you do your job well. But if you find that your worrying is starting to impact your life both in and outside work, you may be dealing with anxiety.
During anxiety therapy, we’ll take a closer look at the things that are causing your anxiety. We’ll then work together to give you the tools to take back control and move forward positively through your life.
For anyone working in the emergency services, achieving a healthy work-life balance can be challenging. However, not addressing this balance can lead to serious stress responses, and even burnout.
After all, how can you be expected to look after someone when you don’t have time to look after yourself?
With the support of stress and burnout therapy, we’ll take a deeper look at the main sources of stress in your life, help you to establish healthy boundaries and equip you with a robust set of mindset tools to better cope with stress and crisis.
As humans, we all experience emotional reactions to certain events in our lives. But when these reactions start becoming debilitating, it may be a post-traumatic stress response.
We use trauma therapy for first responders to help you or your team process trauma specific to your working life.
This may be direct trauma – you’ve been directly involved in a traumatic event or incident. Or it may be indirect (or vicarious) trauma – you’ve experienced traumatic events through other people. For example, you may work in emergency services contact centres or in content moderation. Either way, it’s tough. And you deserve help.
You’re the person who sees the worst things people can go through on a daily basis. You may not be the one directly living these experiences, but you’re living them through someone else.
Overtime, it can start to feel exhausting. It may even result in you feeling dread over going to work. But just because you’re feeling discouraged with work right now, it doesn’t necessarily mean you hate your job. It’s much more likely that you’re experiencing ‘compassion fatigue’.
We can help you here. Through attending counselling, you can begin to enjoy your job as a helping professional again.
We’ll be here for you when you’re ready.
