Crisis Intervention

It is very difficult to deal with the disturbing behaviour of a close family member or friend in crisis. In addition, it can occur outside of office-hours. Understandably it can become overwhelming without outside help. For these reasons you should relieve the pressure from yourself. Moreover, don't be the only decision-maker. Above all, get a person with the right knowledge and skills to contain the situation. The counsellor will provide all involved with coping behaviour.

More About Henning Gericke

I am a psychological counsellor registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and I use Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). In SFBT we FOCUS on solutions, strengths and resources. Most noteworthy, we do this WITHOUT ignoring problems. Read more about the counselling approach.

Furthermore, I am actively part of an international community of Solution Focused therapists. Consequently I am listed internationally as a Solution Focused counsellor.

Am I only using the one approach (modality)? Yes! Here is the reason!


In addition, I have 20 years counselling experience in various settings.

This includes,

  • educational (high school and university),
  • medical (general wards and emergency rooms),
  • community level,
  • on-site (trauma counselling),
  • online and
  • private practice.


Within these settings I have dealt, among other things, with trauma, stress, burnout, feelings of depression and anxiety, relationship issues and addiction.

Finally, I have dealt with diverse target groups. This included, adolescents, young adults (students), adults , couples and employees within business environments.
