The most forward-thinking and most successful employers know the value of good staff. They often use an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) because of the benefits it brings to both employer and employee. They provide their employees with a highly effective problem-solving resource to ensure their employees feel valued and supported. There are no upfront fees, we only invoice for sessions used.
Nightingale Counselling is unique in the fact that we will assess the individual’s issues and ensure they are aligned to the most effective and appropriate counsellor and counselling discipline that best suits their needs.
Different models of counselling and therapy bring different results and therefore, as a duty of care to your staff, we want to ensure the work is effective and brings the right results as soon as possible. Our aim is to help your employee regain their ability to work at full capacity.
We will see your employee within 48 hours from the initial contact.
Booking your initial appointments
In the first instance generally, we will be asked by the employees HR department or manager to contact the employee directly to book a session for them or the employee can access the EAP service by self-referring, confidentially. During the initial call, the employee will be assessed and referred to the most effective counsellor.
They will be invited to see their counsellor in our consulting rooms near Charing Cross in Glasgow. We also offer telephone sessions, Facetime, WhatsApp, or online sessions via Zoom, Skype and Microsoft Teams. Most companies offer four to six funded sessions for employees. If further work is required, we will seek permission from the source of the referral. If it is a self-referral, we can offer four funded sessions without your company knowing who accessed the service.
Sadly, due to recent events, some companies will have no other option but to make some of their employees redundant. Although most employees understand why a company may have to make this sad decision, it can still leave employees feeling a deep sense of loss and grief. Some clients will suffer a detrimental effect on their self-esteem and confidence. Employees may also feel trauma and become stuck in a cycle of depression and anxiety.
Offering employees one-to-one counselling to work through their feelings about losing their job, can help them to come to terms with the situation and help them to put it into a better perspective. We would recommend six sessions, four sessions in counselling and two sessions of coaching, to formulate a plan of action to move forward in a more positive way.
