Services for Businesses and Organisations
Businesses and organisations often call upon the services of counsellors and therapists at times of particular crisis. Staff bereavements, accidents, redundancy programmes or organisational transitions are the main reasons for bringing in external expertise.
The HSE also recognises that stress, including work related stress, can be a significant cause of illness and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence, staff turnover and other issues such as more errors.
We can work with you to assess, develop and implement tailored interventions to help support your organisation. We have experience of providing consultancy, crisis management and in house service provision.
