Counselling

Counselling


Workplace counselling has been shown to be highly effective1. Research by the British Occupational Health Research Foundation showed that for people with mental health concerns, counselling helped them to remain in work or return to work more quickly2.

Counselling and CBT are talking therapies that offer a confidential space to understand our own mental health, identify coping strategies and can provide lasting effective change.

The number of sessions required varies per person though we recommend 4-6 sessions as a starting point for an improvement in wellbeing for common mental health problems such as anxiety, stress and depression3.

We offer counselling by telephone, online or in-person at our Brighouse offices, and can usually book you in within 7 days.

This service is available on demand or as a pre-agreed number of sessions per employee. Support provided as you need it.

Counsellor Profile
