Personal problems can impact on professional performance. Stress, anxiety or depression, for example, can affect work performance. Providing colleagues with counseling or support when they are having a difficult time at home or at work can help maintain productivity, avoid problems escalating, save management time and reduce staff absence. Areas covered include work related stress, psychological problems, bereavement, performance anxieties and relationship and family issues. Counseling and Support Services meets a real need among your staff and offers:
Individual Counselling for School Staff
Weekly counselling sessions of fifty minutes, over a period of at least six to eight weeks. The sessions are confidential, person-centred and tailored to the individual’s needs, providing a safe, therapeutic space where the staff member is facilitated to express and explore their feelings, thoughts and experiences.
This work focuses on strengths in order to build confidence, resilience and self-esteem. Coping mechanisms are developed through methods such as mindfulness, relaxation techniques and self-reflection.
Flexible “safe haven” help
Schools can be a stressful environment to work in. Sometimes there will be situations that arise that can have a negative impact on staff and staff will benefit from having an impartial place to “offload”, debrief and consider coping strategies. Consultation sessions can be set up at short notice during or immediately following a crisis, according to need.
Services for Schools can run workshops on a range of wellbeing-related subjects. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
