Counselling for Business & organisations

We offer Corporate Counselling Services to businesses for employee's

The Counselling we provide gives an employee a safe place to talk about issues that trouble them and allowing Counsellors to help them find their own solutions to problems or develop better ways to manage issues. It is not about giving advice, but about providing a non-judgmental, empathic and accessible means to allow an employee to find a way forward.

While work related issues, including stress, overwork, bullying and difficult colleagues, can of course directly impact an employee's performance, personal issues can have a similar negative impact.

We all experience life-crisis issues at different stages in our lives. Experiences such as bereavement and loss, relationship and family difficulties, substance misuse, alcohol issues, and stresses at home can all preoccupy someone's thinking and distract them from work. In certain safety sensitive industries this can also be a major risk.

Recent Health and Safety legislation has put a responsibility on employers requiring them to consider their employees mental and emotional well being.

‘In 2001 the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists commissioned and published a report “Counselling in the workplace: The facts” which determined that after Counselling, more than half of all employees found their work related symptoms had returned to normal, and sickness and absence was reduced by 25%’
