The risk of self-harm and suicide are critical issues that Quetzal assess and monitor constantly during the counselling journey. The counselling sessions may trigger negative thoughts which may lead to harmful behaviours. Ultimately, Quetzal find that the longer the clients remains with Quetzal, their risk of self-harm and/or suicide reduce and they develop healthy coping mechanisms to deal with their trauma. For those who may find themselves in a position where they may attempt to hurt themselves or others, Quetzal offers 6 week crisis counselling.
