Workplace Counselling and Employee Assistance Programmes

Welcoming business counsellor

Personal problems can become work problems. Most of us find it difficult to completely separate out work life from our personal life. As a manager you have probably at some time found yourself torn between responsibility towards the organisation which requires you to get the job done, responsibility towards your team who need everyone to pull their weight and responsibility towards a member of staff whose performance is suffering because of a problem

Today's employers are expected to responsibly and holistically support the health and wellbeing of their workforce. The support mechanisms we provide for many organisations become part of their culture, part of their management excellence.

Staff can look to People at Work for:

  • Counsellors who are experienced in the workplace counselling; accredited under BACP/UKCP; able to provide a safe environment and an opportunity to examine problems, weigh up options and, with our support, find their own solutions.
  • Counsellors who are experienced in specialist areas such as:
    • Stress
    • Bereavement
    • Relationships
    • Mental Health
    • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
    • Trauma
  • Expert partners who are able to advise on:
    • Citizen's and legal issues
    • Financial and debt problems
    • Carer advice
    • Health and Wellbeing
  • Management partners who are there to 'talk through' approaches to managing; specific management challenges

I am often made aware that in my work with People at Work I am truly supporting employees in remaining at work and in achieving their full potential People at Work Network Counsellor
It’s hard to overstate the positive effect that People at Work can have on a local authority or business. Stress and sickness absence reduce; and morale, motivation and performance increase. Executive Director of Corporate Services, Local Authority City Council
People at Work maintains a personal, very human quality, whilst providing an efficient and up-to-date service... I have not found a comparable organisation which retains such personal contact with both counsellors and clients. Clients often remark on this ease of communication and appreciate the efforts People at Work consultants go to on their behalf. People at Work Network Psychotherapist
