Emergency Service Workers
Promoting prevention, building resilience and supporting post-traumatic mental health for police and emergency service workers.
Find understanding, relief and clarity with the right support.
Let's talk to discuss what you might need.
Work in the emergency services can be rewarding, exciting and incredibly tough. Whether you’re attending or witnessing a distressing event, or helping in its aftermath, the cumulative strain of this work can take its toll.
Tempo offers a safe, stepped framework to support workers seeking relief from symptoms of distress, including:
Low mood, irritability, difficulties with sleep, physical agitation such as shortness of breath or a racing heart, scanning for danger, reliving scenes from work, avoiding places or people connected to traumatic events, intrusive thoughts or memories and worry about being able to do your job.
In keeping with current research recommendations, therapeutic approaches are multi-sensory and body-based. Incorporating elements of mindfulness, music listening, guided imagery, creative arts and body-focused processes are carefully designed and structured to alleviate symptoms, and support you to
- Build positive inner resources
- Reconnect with your body and breath
- Reduce agitation
- Improve relaxation and sleep practices
- Process traumatic memories
- Find clarity, focus and hope
Telehealth platforms used, Coviu and Zoom, have end to end encryption for your privacy and security.

Resources for Emergency Service Workers
Therapy groups are a fantastic way to find support and connect with others facing similar experiences. They bring people together, help you to see that you are not alone and can be a way to learn about yourself in relation to others. In joining with others in a group, you can develop skills in communication, see things from different perspectives, share learnings and develop some great networks of support.
We don’t leave ourselves behind when we go to work, we take our whole selves in. Some days it is easy to keep ourselves separate. But when we are tired, have a special connection to a client or patient, have difficulties of our own, or are touched by the moment, it is not always possible, or appropriate, to maintain a separation. We feel their joy and we feel their pain. And sometimes it touches ours.
