Current pressures in an age of austerity and a need for increased productivity have placed a high level of pressure on employees, which can have a direct impact on business performance.  This has led to companies having to support a sometimes stressed and fatigued workforce. These difficulties can then lead to employees being less productive, enjoying their work and personal lives less and ultimately, on occasion, taking time off on long-term sickness absence.  

We have experience of working with complex cases and with people who have been off work with chronic psychological difficulties, including anxiety, depression and trauma. This is an area that we feel is often not fully addressed by some other employee assistance programmes, which only work on a very short number of sessions basis. Complex cases require a full and comprehensive assessment, formulation and treatment plan to help a person deal with their often chronic and sometimes severe psychological difficulties. All of our treatments are evidence-based, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, and follow guidelines provided by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence. In addition, our therapists are all registered with the BABCP or the Health Professions Council.

Following the assessment a treatment plan will be provided which will give an indication of the extent of the employee’s difficulties, an estimate of the number of treatment sessions and a costing for the treatment. We also use reliable and valid measures of psychological distress and these are administered to monitor level of severity and degree of change over time.

We provide face to face sessions and can also offer telephone consultation if this is appropriate. We are also able to provide training on stress management and this can be done with small groups in the workplace.
