CRAMLI practitioners aim to help with negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, fear avoidance and fears of recurrence. We will assess and work on how these are affecting you within your everyday life.
Talking with someone about how you are thinking and feeling is often the first step to identifying how things can then change. If it is appropriate, you may be offered a number of talking therapy sessions to help you manage any difficult emotions you may be having and to increase your sense of coping and come to terms with your experience of cardiac health concerns.
Our centre is open, and we continue to offer face-to-face appointments to clients who wish this. All our centres have been equipped to maintain social distancing and to meet stringent hygiene requirements and we continue to work with these in place.
People with complex mental health needs are understood to be experiencing significant, multiple, rare or persistent mental health challenges that impact their functioning in most areas such as in the home, work/education and in the community. These needs, often in combination with one another are complex as it difficult to address all presenting issues at the same time. In fact, complex cases require individuals to access services and support from a wide variety of government and community services. Therefore, case coordination is necessary to communicate across sectors/services involved in individuals’ care which can be slow and frustrating to the client and their loved ones.
Effective evidence-based offender counselling focuses on factors that contribute to the risk of re-offending. It addresses intervention techniques, as they apply to the individual, the family and the community.
Offender counselling targets the dynamic risk factors for re-offending: anger, impulsivity, cognitive distortions, and substance abuse.
To ensure successful intervention, offender counselling also lists the strengths and protective factors currently in the life of the individual. It is crucial if change is to be lasting that relapse prevention strategies be addressed: strategies such as non-criminal thinking, victim empathy, understanding the offence cycle, being alert to triggers and ways to avoid the offence cycle before it begins.
Alcohol and drug use can lead to challenges in many areas of life. These can include changes in behaviour, life circumstances, financial and legal issues, issues at work, lapses in personal and health care.
