What is Counselling?

Counselling is the means by which one person helps another through purposeful conversation: a process in which two people meet to explore personal problems and identify solutions. Counselling attempts through face-to-face or virtual sessions to help with problem-solving, providing a space for the person to reflect, identify issues and reflect on emotions and responses.

Why should you invest in Employee Counselling?


Employee counselling can provide support to cover a range of topics from depression, anxiety, and overall mental health supporting your team’s overall wellbeing. Whether through team or individual sessions, counselling can help alleviate feelings and behaviours. Employee counselling can also provide support for specific situations, such as bereavement which can impact the ability of a person to produce high-quality work in both the short and long term. This not only impacts themselves, but also all those around them and, potentially, your business.
