Counselling services

 

How does an Employee Assist Programme help the company?


Stress at work is a serious problem for most employers. The pressures of business demands, and the accompanying stress on staff, seem to increase all the time. This stress can reduce the efficiency, availability and output of your teams. Problems they have at home are probably not your fault; but these problems can seriously affect your bottom line. Many employers understand that a small amount of money, targeted strategically at a problem, can save large losses in the future. A small investment in counselling could keep key staff working and functioning properly. For many companies staff are their most valuable asset; and we can help ensure that your assets continue to work for you.
An effective means of counselling is short term, solution focused therapy. Average length of package is 6 weekly sessions.

Solution focused therapy, 6 sessions   £330
