As an adjunct to my ministry, I provide free online crisis counselling. Crisis counselling is an intervention that helps individuals to navigate through extremely distressing situations by providing immediate assistance, support and guidance. The aim of this service is to help minimize the stress of the event, and to improve the individual’s coping strategies in the present. Furthermore, crisis counselling may effectively prevent the onset or reduce severity of trauma related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
If you find yourself in an overwhelmingly distressing, traumatic or suicidal situation, please call: +27632625446, and then proceed immediately to the online waiting room (see below).
Please note: the following service is strictly for emergencies; for individuals who are experiencing a sudden loss of their ability to cope, or who are in danger of self-harm. Crisis intervention counselling is not meant to address long-standing psychological problems, but rather to help people deal with the immediate crisis in their lives. Should you be in need of more long term help, I will provide you with an appropriate referral.
I provide online crisis counselling through a secure video platform (Doxy.me), which is fully encrypted to meet the requirements for patient privacy and confidentiality. It is an (HIPAA) compliant teletherapy platform. I am currently registered with the Council for Counsellors in South Africa, REG NO: CO 20470.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.’ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
