A Flexible Approach To Your Employment Support

Work can be important for your mental health and wellbeing. We can provide up to 6 employment support sessions, working closely with you and your therapist to meet your employment needs.

Appointments can be tailored around what works best for you, for example: weekly or fortnightly and can be a short check-in telephone call or up to an hour to discuss complex issues.

We have a flexible approach to communication which is by telephone, text, face to face via webcam or email. We are not available 24 hours a day but you can send a message at any time and we will get back to you in our working hours.
