Increasingly employers have a responsibility to support the health of their employees by providing access to an independent, specialist resource for occupational health. Workplace counselling offers a sounding board for an employee: giving them a safe space to talk about issues that trouble them, and then working to find solutions-to-problems or strategies to develop better ways of managing. Generally short-term in nature, counselling interventions can be about both work and non-work related issues, as these too affect someone’s capacity to do their job. The size of the organisation may determine whether support is provided through locally negotiated arrangements or via a recognised health insurance provider.
The Rock Clinic has developed contracts with a number of local employers to offer brief, focal therapy. This is a confidential service and although paid for by the employer, no details of presenting issues or final outcome are passed on.
The Rock Clinic is a recognised provider of psychological interventions with a number of national and international health insurance companies. The funds available will determine the number of sessions that can be accessed.
If you have health insurance please mention this to Reception or at the initial interview and you will then be allocated to a therapist who is approved by your provider.
To find out more, please contact us or go online to book an initial interview. Following this we will then arrange ongoing sessions with your therapist.
