September 6 2018Read more
Dealing with mental health issues are tough enough, but when it comes to coinciding work life, things can become too much for some. This is why it’s invaluable to have support for employees in the workplace, as it can prove beneficial for all parties. With our mental health rehabilitation services, we attempt to aid an employee’s mental recovery, allowing them to be more productive in the workplace once again. Read on to find out more about the rehabilitation services we provide regarding mental health, and how they can lead to a more positive working environment:
For staff with mental health issues, attempting to get through the working day can be a real struggle, with their quality of work certainly affected due to an unintentional lack of focus. With help from our experienced counsellors, staff can confront these issues earlier and in a safe environment where confidentiality is paramount. Having to find any form of stress management service outside of work can be a more intimidating experience. In the working environment, employees have the comfort of knowing that there are people they can depend upon to support them through difficult periods. To take the hassle away from employees and give them the support they need, we advise that employers introduce our workplace wellbeing service.
When our mental health rehabilitation services are introduced, employers can rest assured that staff will be helped by our fully trained counsellors. This can either be over the phone, face-to-face or online video counselling, depending on the preferences of the staff member. Face-to-face is preferable for incidences where trauma has been suffered, as counsellors can build a deep relationship in a confidential setting and gain more knowledge from the employee’s body language. Our counsellors’ ability to effectively problem solve, empowers staff to help themselves.
Our counsellors all have vast experience in trauma-specific interventions. Examples include Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
EMDR therapy helps employees overcome particularly traumatic incidents, such as personal abuse or road traffic accidents. These types of incidents can be harder for those affected to process and can sometimes affect individuals by way of unsettling flashbacks and nightmares. EMDR therapy is beneficial as it is conducted using a sequence of eye movements which help alter the way the recipient’s brain stores memories, resulting in the reduction of negative emotions.
CBT therapy is a service put in place to treat a vast amount of physical and mental issues. When you choose the CBT therapy offered by Health Assured, we will tackle the major problems by breaking them down, so they feel smaller and more manageable. We help recipients of our treatments realise negative patterns or choices they may have made which have led to their troubling issues. This will provide them with the boost they need to make significant changes to their lifestyle.
Another benefit of using our expert mental health rehabilitation services is that we provide employees with updates so they’re aware of how much progress they’re making during the different counselling sessions and services. This gives the employee a good idea how much additional support or further treatment is needed. Just to prove how successful our services can be, we discovered that at one of our client locations, utilisation of both our CBT and EMDR therapy services are at an impressive 23.8%. Furthermore, 40% of employees who began using these services whilst they were out of work, returned to the workplace, whilst life satisfaction had improved by 39% and workplace distress levels were reduced by 17%.
