Nigel Magowan is able to offer a range of employee assistance services to small and medium-sized businesses in the Greater Manchester area. Employers wishing to provide help for their employees can refer them for counselling, life coaching, CBT and EMDR.
Employee assistance programmes can help staff with personal problems and/or work-related problems that may be impacting on their job performance, health, mental and emotional well-being.
Employee assistance almost always consists of short-term work which usually provides between 6 to 12 weekly sessions. This is often enough to get your employee back on their feet again.
Some examples of common problems:
- Work stress
- Traumatic events at work
- Relationship issues
- Bullying at work
- Confidence issues
- Public speaking nerves
- Motivational issues
- Sleep problems
- Performance issues
Benefits of employee assistance counselling and coaching
How employee assistance benefits to the employer?
Common problems such as anger, stress, anxiety, insomnia or confidence issues can considerably reduce your employee’s productivity and cause disruption to the rest of the team. Reducing not only their own productivity but also disrupting the entire team’s productivity. This is usually through illness and absenteeism, lack of motivation, poor concentration, emotional volatility, unhelpful behaviours and relational difficulties. Just a few sessions of therapy or coaching can often be enough to help employees feel better, and ultimately restore their productivity and reduce potential disruption to the rest of your employees.
How to refer an employee?
Employee assistance is considered an employee benefit with the employer either paying in full for the employee’s short-term treatment. Or some employers prefer to sponsor their employee by paying a percentage of their treatment fees. Treatment usually consists of an initial assessment session followed by a block of 6 therapy sessions, additional sessions may be added if required.
