Recovering from a work injury is about more than the physical injury itself. Psychosocial factors such as personal, emotional and industrial factors, as well as knowledge and skills in managing stress, change and pain further impact on the complexity of work injuries.
How counselling can help
The CHG team of qualified psychologists provide specialised clinical treatment and counselling services to manage a range of problems including:
- managing pain
- anxiety and fears
- occupational stress
- bullying and harassment
- post traumatic stress
- anger management
- drug and alcohol use/abuse
- family violence
- relationship issues
CHG psychologists use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic techniques in their counselling services and have extensive expertise in tailoring the approach to meet the needs of clients. Techniques include:
- Solution focused therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Supportive counselling
- Motivational interviewing
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
- Clinical hypnosis
- Rational Emotive therapy
The principal goals of counselling are to focus on building psychological strength and wellbeing and to resolve specific difficulties or disorders. Treatment differs significantly depending on the individual and their reason for referral.
The involvement of a qualified psychologist can have a positive and enduring impact in the management of a work or motor vehicle injury. These counselling services can also be used to assist people dealing with difficult non WorkCover or personal injury situations through a workplace supported CHG Employee Assistance Program.
