Critical Incident Debriefing


We accept referrals directly from Victims Support agencies, employer organisations, self-referrals or via a medical or allied health practitioner.  This service at Cortex is offered to children, adolescents and adults that have been affected either directly or indirectly by a sudden overwhelming or life threatening event or incident that has left them feeling helpless or powerless by the situation,  often resulting in shock or trauma.

Our services assist you to process the events to minimise risk of long term complications and to constructively manage the aftermath reactions, and restore coping resources. This service is provided from all three Cortex locations.  Every effort is made to provide prompt, priority appointments.
