The impact of work related stress
The UK government is taking steps to crack down on work related stress due to the far-reaching problems it causes both socially and financially. An estimated 13.4 million sick days are taken for work related stress every year, costing employers around £3.7 billion annually in lost productivity and £7 billion to the wider economy.

Why is workplace Counselling and Cognitive Coaching important?
Symptoms of stress and anxiety become apparent through different behaviours, negative communication styles, a lack of confidence or a propensity for conflict. It can also account for workplace and commercial errors and rework, or poor decision making, impacting at the highest level or in productivity. If left unmanaged and unsupported, it can lead to distress that affects both the individual and the people around them. This can have a major impact on absenteeism, motivation and productivity at all levels in the workplace.
We take a sensitive and proactive approach to Workplace Counselling and Cognitive Coaching, intervening before things spiral, in complete confidence. We work with respect for people and for the culture of the organisation, building understanding and skills for leadership, management and staff to identify issues at an early stage. We work with people individually or educate in groups. Sessions can be conducted onsite or in private settings including the employees home if they are absent.
