Did you know? Poor mental health costs employers between £33 billion and £42 billion a year. However mental health programmes can generate a return on investment of up to 800%.

Counselling & Talking Therapies

Counselling and talking therapies are an effective way of supporting an employee through many mental health challenges they are likely to encounter during their working life.

However, with waiting times for NHS talking therapy often in excess of 18 months, we recognise that employers need a much faster and more effective service if they are to support employees in a timely manner whilst maintaining productivity.

My Occ Health provide a responsive and supportive counselling service which can be accessed directly, or via our mental health screening service.

The service supports employees struggling with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • PTSD
  • Bereavement
  • Alcohol/drug dependence
  • Family/matrimonial
  • Bullying/harassment
  • Money worries

All of our counsellors are NCS, UKCP and BACP accredited and are fully vetted and insured.

How does it work?

Our counselling consultations are conducted by skype or telephone so that they are convenient and can even be conducted from home, to encourage the employee to be fully open about their challenges and get the most out of the sessions.

Employees can be referred directly into our counselling service or invited to complete our mental health screening initially, to determine whether counselling is appropriate.

  1. An initial assessment will then be arranged between the employee and one of our experienced counsellors.
  2. The initial assessment will recommend whether the employee is suitable for talking therapy, and how many sessions are recommended.
  3. The employer must then confirm how many sessions they are willing to fund, or the employee can fund it themselves.
  4. Talking therapy sessions are arranged and the employee will begin the therapy course.
  5. Upon completion of the course, the therapist will provide recommendations either for further sessions, alternative treatment, or follow-on support if therapy has been successful.

What are the benefits?

Benefits to the organisation:

  • A happier and more productive workforce, not only for the employee involved but for those working around them
  • Reduce employee absenteeism to prevent administration costs, increased costs for temporary workers or understaffing leading to poor customer service.
  • A resource for managers who feel unable to help with a more complex or personal problem that an employee is facing.

Benefits to the employee:

  • An increased sense of wellbeing and the ability to maintain a healthy balance between work and home life
  • A swift response to address concerns as quickly as possible and help them to move forward
  • A safe and secure workplace where they can be open about their issues
