Corporate Clients

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has recently published that in the UK 1.35 million people (or 53% of those on long-term sick leave) reported that they had depression, anxiety and high levels of stress*. A 2023 survey conducted by PwC for The Times Health Commission* has shown that 38% of businesses have seen an increase in the number of employees taking long-term sick leave due to mental health related illness since the pandemic.

Mental Health & Productivity

Every organisation’s success is built through the contributions of its people and so it is natural for organisations to aim having a motivated, engaged and high performing workforce. However, relationship, health, financial or other difficulties that people may be currently experiencing, as well as any past traumas, can result in mental health problems which get in the way of people giving their best at work.

Whether employees are on sick leave or are still coming to work whilst experiencing mental health issues, companies suffer from the negative consequences, including decreased productivity, additional costs and lost revenues.

Psychotherapy can play a crucial role in enhancing productivity at work by addressing and alleviating mental health concerns that can hinder professional performance.

Working with a therapist can help people develop strategies to cope with professional and personal demands, achieve insights into what makes them behave in a certain way and learn how to become more resilient and grounded, both in the workplace and at home.

Over half of the businesses (55%) surveyed by PwC agree that they have a role to play in supporting employees’ health at a time of unprecedented pressure on the health services. As organisations increasingly recognise the importance of mental health in the workplace, integrating psychotherapy as part of employee benefits and well-being programmes can prove to be a strategic investment in cultivating a more productive and engaged workforce.

Offering your employees psychotherapy can be an excellent and convenient way to offer psychological support to your employees. As a psychotherapist, I will be providing a confidential and safe space to them to explore, understand and address their psychological difficulties.
 

This can be done in a variety of ways, including onsite face-to-face and online sessions. Whether face-to-face or online, providing psychotherapy to your employees will create opportunities for early and on-going support before things become unmanageable and employees may need to move out on sick leave. Receiving this level of support will help people feel more valued, increasing their engagement and productivity which will have a positive impact on your company’s bottom line.

This is especially valuable for businesses employing highly skilled professionals, working in demanding, dynamic and fast-changing environments, where stress and burnout rates are high.

I have 25 years of corporate experience in industries such as financial services, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and professional services which means that I understand challenges and pressures of the professional life and balancing it with other commitments. My professional experience, including working extensively in the HR function, combined with my psychotherapy training, has helped me gain an insight into how people’s psychological makeup and past experiences influence how they respond emotionally and behave in and out of work, and develop skills to help my clients resolve current difficulties and be able to contribute to their fullest potential.
