Employee assistance programme (EAP)
I run an employee assistance programme (EAP) based in Taunton Somerset offering a confidential counselling that enables employers and companies in UK to help their staff with personal or workplace issues that might impact their performance, wellbeing, mental or physical health
We provide employees a safe place through counselling to talk about issues that trouble them and allowing Counsellors to help them find their own solutions to problems or develop better ways to manage issues. We are not here to give advice, but we provide a non-judgmental, empathic and accessible means to allow an employee to find a way forward.
We help employees deal with work related issues, including stress and anxiety, depression, bereavement or trauma related issues. work, bullying and difficult colleagues, which can directly impact an employee’s performance, personal issues can have a similar negative impact.
We all experience life-crisis issues at some point in our lives. Things such as bereavement and loss, relationship and family difficulties, substance misuse, alcohol issues, and stresses at home can all preoccupy someone’s thinking and distract them from work. In certain safety sensitive industries this can also be a major risk.
Our employee assistance service allows you to help and support your staff in a compassionate and confidential way.

How Much Does the Counselling Cost?
Most companies offer their employees up to a maximum of 6 x 1 hour sessions paid for by their company. I offer employee counselling sessions on a weekly basis but this can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual – company where necessary. I charge £40 per session but eh first session is FREE.
7 sessions (1 x initial, 6 x subsequent sessions) = £240
13 sessions (1 x initial, 12 x subsequent sessions) = £480
19 sessions (1 x initial, 18 x subsequent sessions) = £760
