What are Employee Counselling Services?
Our Employee Counselling Service is a confidential employee benefit providing counselling support and advice on issues that might be impacting their wellbeing and performance. It is a highly effective solution employers can provide to differentiate themselves from other businesses.
Sometimes issues or concerns at work or at home can affect your employees and lead to absence or presenteeism, and all that might be needed is empathetic, impartial support and advice.
Our Employee Counselling Service provides local face-to-face counselling and expert support from fully clinically qualified counsellors and/or psychotherapists with the aim of increasing staff wellbeing and productivity, as well as reducing absences.
WHAT CAN WE SUPPORT WITH?
• Stress, anxiety and low mood
• Family and matrimonial problems
• Feelings of isolation
• Bullying and harassment

Some of the benefits of our employee counselling services
How counselling works – Case Study
Susan has been experiencing some personal issues which are affecting her concentration at work and impacting on her productivity. She speaks to a Mental Health First Aider in her organisation who suggests she accesses the ECS. Susan completes the Isle Listen referral form, answering some simple questions about herself and the issues she is facing.
Susan’s referral is assessed within 7 days. If Isle Listen is able to provide appropriate support, a member of the therapeutic team is allocated and Susan is contacted to arrange a convenient time for her initial face-to-face assessment.
After her assessment, the therapist suggests Susan would benefit from four face-to-face sessions over the following few weeks, and the dates and times of those sessions can be arranged in advance.
Susan completes her four further counselling sessions and having talked through the issues she has been experiencing and using the self-help techniques recommended, she is able to more appropriately manage and deal with her personal issues
