Trauma and Crisis Support
Providing trauma and crisis support when and where it’s needed most.
Trauma and Crisis Support
Trauma can come in many different shapes and forms, and at FD Consultants we understand how this can affect individuals in all areas. We’re a team of specialised and skilled trauma care experts who are well-versed in assisting employees and organisations who have experienced a traumatic event or witnessed traumatic material. Blending compassion, creativity, and expertise, our experienced specialists help to manage the effects trauma can cause, and assist individuals to cope and recover quickly.
We offer trauma assessments to assist employees across organisations of all sizes and types. Trauma is not limited to specific industries, and it can affect anybody who has experienced a traumatic event, either directly or indirectly. Our trauma assessments consider the wide range of trauma symptoms and help those experiencing trauma by offering vital coping strategies and resources.
Trauma Specialist Counselling
Trauma specialist counselling (EMDR & TF-CBT) - These trauma specialist therapies provide counselling support and are recommended by WHO, APA and NICE guidelines.
We recognise the importance of offering debriefs after critical incidents to support individuals or teams. These debriefs can be impactful for those who are experiencing the direct or indirect impact of trauma. We are aware it is not just those on the frontline that can be impacted by trauma, for example, a research project that focused on traumatic material, imagery and stories may evoke a trauma response in certain individuals.
We support organisations when managing significant change or managing a critical incident. We offer consultancy advice to senior management and leadership teams.
Trauma management programmes
We can help organisations embed trauma management programmes into their organisation. This enables a clear process and procedure to follow to support staff wellbeing following a traumatic incident, allowing staff to recover and return to work quicker. For example, we have implemented trauma support programmes specifically for the pandemic response and Ukraine crisis. We strongly believe all organisations need to consider having a trauma support and wellbeing programme for staff to foster staff wellbeing and improve resilience.
About Our General Support Services
We understand each workplace and each individual is different. As such, we offer both in-person and online services that see equally successful recovery rates regardless of the type of delivery.
One size does not fit all when it comes to organisational support. We work closely with each organisation to understand the culture and offer personalised services aimed at improving resilience specific to your organisation.
Facilitated By Experts
We’re a team of highly skilled and specialised associates with over 10 years of experience. All of our associates are highly qualified experts with a wealth of experience in crisis support and trauma counselling.
Fiona Dunkley, the founder of FD Consultants, understands precisely the importance of caring for employees. After many years working alongside those in emergency services and humanitarian aid organisations, she utilised her skills to create FD Consultants.
FD Consultants is a team of specialists in trauma care who continue the meaningful work Fiona started and expands upon it by offering a large network of specialist therapists and trainers. FD Consultants aims to assist individual organisations and employees improve resilience and offers personalised services specific to each organisation.
Employees who have gone through traumatic experiences can have additional concerns regarding their employment following a traumatic incident. Our goal is to help these individuals understand that their mental health is a priority in the workplace, and that their feelings are valid and respected. In doing so, we work quickly to support staff as much as needed and as soon as possible, enabling faster recoveries so they can return to the workplace successfully.
