About Employee Counselling (EAP)
Our counselling services are designed to help your organisation put in place a programme that enables your employees to resolve personal or work-related issues that are having an impact on their work.
Employers have a duty of care for employees and this programme will achieve that for you and also provide a work environment that is more productive. Looking after your employees will in turn look after your business!
The EAP offers your staff the opportunity to access counselling services that they might not otherwise be able to or may have had to wait considerable lengths of time to access through the NHS. We offer in-person counselling in Bromsgrove, in an independent, confidential environment. We have experience in the following areas:
Packages can include: assessment, final report and flexible appointment times are available to suit both employer and employee.

About Business Supervision
Supervision is at the heart of continuing professional development (CPD) for all helping professionals. It is the ‘go to place’ for safely sharing reflections about your work and professional identity, organisational impacts and your work with your clients.
It is a place to turn to for engaging in honest exploration regarding ethical dilemmas, role complexity, internalised conflicts, skills acquisition and self care practices guided by a trusting, safe and genuinely interested supervisor.
Where supervision is not provided within your workplace you may consider obtaining it externally. Workplaces may also value the opportunity for external supervision and may contribute to your investment in your own CPD by allowing time off in lieu or by agreeing to pay for your supervision.
External Supervision for Organisations and Group Supervision are very affordable ways to attend to nourishing and developing professional practice and are available for organisations to book for their staff. In general there is no set amount of supervision hours to participate in but every reason to ‘turn up’ to an opportunity to obtain external support and skills development.
Mentoring in the workplace describes a relationship in which an experienced practitioner shares their greater knowledge to support the development of an individual. It calls on the skills of questioning, listening, clarifying and reframing the individuals views and experiences within the workplace.
Mentoring relationships work best when they move beyond the directive approach of a senior colleague ‘telling it how it is’. An effective mentoring relationship is where there are learning opportunities for both participants, encouraging joint sharing and learning.
The role of a mentor
Mentoring activities are undertaken through a range of mediums including in-person meetings (individual or group), telephone discussions and email exchanges.
