Employee Assistance (Counselling)
Employee Assistance (Counselling):
I hear from business owners like yourself that they can feel embarrassed and sometimes helpless when their employees disclose personal difficulties that they are having which are affecting their work in terms of e.g. sickness absence, relationships with their colleagues, motivation.
Sometimes I hear different, employees won’t disclose personal issues with their employer as they feel shame, fear of being judged or losing their job.
I provide a confidential outside source for you where the employee can discuss these issues and we can find a way forward.
Some examples of issues are:
• Low Mood
• Different types of loss e.g. redundancy
• Money problems
• Affects of Domestic Abuse
• Abuse in Childhood
• Relationship Issues
• Role of Carer
• Self Harming
• Self Medicating
• Loss of motivation, confidence
• Lack of self-worth
• Disproportionate anger
When issues aren’t addressed, whether because you as the employer, are struggling to know what to do or the employee doesn’t wish to disclose, this can cause anxiety and frustration for you in terms of loss of time and money.
In addition, having this provision in place can give you peace of mind. The Supreme Court decided that tribunal fees are unlawful and a barrier to justice, abolishing them with immediate effect. If an employee feels you’ve treated them badly, there’s nothing to stop them making a claim against you and that could have a devastating effect on your business. All employment tribunal judgements now go on the internet for anyone to see.
Workshops, bespoke and consultation service also available.
You might feel it would make sense to meet and find we may have some common ground. This investment might be of no benefit to your business or I may not be able to help therefore there would be no follow up unless something changes for you.
Cost: £60 for 50 minute session
Please note there is no lift in the building but I provide a telephone counselling service.
