How can a business book counselling for staff members?

If you are an organisation, institution or business and recognise that your staff are struggling with organisational change, issues at work and managing difficult relationships, or that your staff are affected by their personal problems and these impact on their ability to focus and concentrate on their work, then you will find it useful to sign up to the Only Connect counselling service.

Only Connect offers counselling support to your staff, which is external and confidential. This may help your staff deal with their difficulties and help them to focus on their work rather than needing to go on sick leave. We are able to offer assessments and counselling sessions. We are also able to offer specialist, tailor-made workshops for larger numbers of staff.

Should you be interested in more details and information about our services then please contact the Only Connect manager at [email protected]. or phone +44 (0)20 7911 5000 ext 66899 and we will be able to explain to you the terms and conditions for joining the Only Connect service and how to set up the counselling for your staff.
