Employee Assistance

Employee Assistance

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates a rise in the number of people experiencing mental health difficulties in the workplace. Stress-related difficulties can lead to accidents and medical problems, which can in turn result in an inability to work efficiently, increased absence and a decline in productivity.

Current trends indicate an emphasis on the employer’s responsibility to provide services that meet their employees’ mental health needs and therefore, employee wellbeing is of immediate interest to the corporate world.

North East Counselling and Therapy offers an Employee Assistance Service, which can help organisations enhance the wellbeing of staff. Individual therapy can support your employees to work through their difficulties, find ways to manage their stress levels & achieve a better work-life balance. This is offered both on premise and at one of the practice locations.

To find out how employee assistance in Durham could help support your workforce to achieve a better work life balance please contact me and I will be happy to provide more information. Our clinic locations are conveniently located across two sites in Durham.
