There are more people at work with mental health conditions than ever before.
Approximately 70 million workdays are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, costing employers £2.4 billion annually.
Furthermore, around 15% of employees have symptoms of an existing mental health condition, whilst 300,000 people with long term mental health problems lose their jobs each year.
Issues suffered can range from bullying, bereavement, addiction, illness and grievance to performance related stress and anxiety.
Employers have a duty of care to create healthy, inclusive workplaces so that employees with mental health conditions are not only supported but are able to thrive at work.
OK Talk Counselling can provide a bespoke workplace counselling service for an organisation or offer additional support to an existing internal employee assistance or wellness programme.
We offer high-quality, confidential, flexible counselling either face to face inside or outside the workplace, over the telephone or online via Skype.
The power of sharing a personal concern, issue or difficulty with an expert trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches who provides understanding, support and empowerment can be life changing.
Enabling employees to feel able to talk about their mental health, make decisions themselves and help improve their lives will, in turn, make the workplace a healthier and happier environment for all.
OK Talk Counselling offers support to organisations across all sizes and sectors with therapists who are registered British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) members and, crucially, understand the environment in which the employees are working.
Workplace counselling is proven to demonstrate a positive return on investment through reduced sickness absence rates and an increase in an organisation’s productivity.
