Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Statistics indicate that 1 in 6 employees experience unmanageable stress, depression or anxiety at any one time, while 1 in 5 would not disclose mental ill health issues to their manager for fear of being placed first in line for redundancy or harming their promotion and career prospects.

Mental ill health at work costs UK employers £26 billion per year, an average of £1,035 per employee, as a result of:

  • Sick absence

  • Reduced productivity

  • Staff turnover

Wessex Counselling & Psychotherapy offers rapid access to brief, focused, confidential counselling for employees with personal and/or workplace issues including:

  • Stress, depression and anxiety

  • Redundancy, early retirement or relocation

  • Post- traumatic stress
