EAPs generally include short-term therapy and referral services for employees and their household members.

Andy has over 2 decades experience of working within the constraints of EAP therapy. With a focus on short-term interventions, and to aid positive change in a minimum amount of sessions, models of therapy such as Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) are used.

Giving your employees a space to talk confidentially about personal and work related issues has been proven to increase the overall wellbeing of staff and their organisations.

'Working for a healthier tomorrow' is the report that Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health & Work researched and authored. This report prompted wide spread action to improve well-being in the workplace. A study by Price Water House Coopers (commissioned as part of the Dame Carol Black Report) showed a return of £4.17 for every £1 spent on staff well-being. Investing in the health and well-being of your employees can be the best place to start.

Stress affects 1 in 5 people and is the leading cause of work illness (HSE). According to research carried out by the CIPD, the cost of one day of sickness for an average employee across all sectors is £78.

A total of 2.8 million days are lost in the UK due to stress, depression and anxiety (HSE). Other benefits of promoting employee well-being include: Increased employee retention, increased levels of employee engagement, promotion of team-building, improved organisational confidence, and attention to dignity in the workplace.

In over 2 decades in psychological study, Andy's worked with many organisations, supporting their staff through employee wellbeing - programmes. Some of them are listed below:

The Mental Health Triage programme has been designed to be a first line support system that's easy to access, confidential and person centered. It gives those that are not ready to commit to longer term therapy a space to speak with someone disconnected from their personal and professional life. That person is a highly skilled therapist that can both support, give guidance and signpost to additional help if required.

If you take proactive steps to create a more open and supportive culture, over time staff should begin to feel more confident to talk to managers about their mental health. However, it's important to remember culture change doesn't happen overnight and the individual relationships between managers and employees are the key to getting this right.

If people are able to receive support quickly, this can often help steer them away from developing a more serious problem. For this reason, it's vital that organisations have clear, well publicised channels in place for employees to raise concerns and take positive action promptly when staff seek help.
