Since 1996, Crisis has provided one-to-one, family, group and counselling to over 36,000 people. We receive an average of 1500 referrals per year to our headquarters in Erskine, but deploy counsellors across 13 other local authority areas
At Crisis, there is no ‘typical’ client or issue is focused on. Instead, we have a range of clients from children to adults who come for support in a variety of issues including recovering from trauma or violence, relationship or familial breakdowns, work-related stresses, loss and bereavement, and more. Our partnerships allow counsellors to work all over Scotland with a range of agencies including those in the health & social care sector, faith communities and business.
We offer specific employee counselling for corporate and community clients, supporting employees who have experienced trauma or who are having trouble adjusting to changes in their everyday lives. These counselling sessions generally result in a reduction to staff turnover, increased productivity, and improved staff morale. We also provide critical incident response and Business Continuity advice
