Work

For lots of us work is a huge part of our lives and it’s where we spend a large majority of our time. 

When you aren’t feeling at your best and are worried, stressed or feeling down, it’s understandable that it can have an impact on your work.

Our Employment Advisors can offer you free, confidential advice and support to help you stay in work, return to work after a break or find new work.

There are a range of issues we can support you with, including:

  • Help with CVs, job searching and applications
  • Confidence
  • Employment rights
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Return to work planning
  • Wellness Action Plans/Workplace Health Passports
  • Support to speak to your employer about your health

Our aim is to support you to be at your best at work and either keep you in work, or help you to return to work when you feel ready.

  • Long term employment support
  • Tribunals (employment or benefit)
  • Legal advice
  • Completing benefit forms
  • Workplace qualifications or training

Who is it suitable for?

Anyone who is currently receiving support from our service (you can be waiting for treatment or attending treatment appointments).

How do appointments work?

We can offer you a face to face, video or telephone appointment, it’s completely up to you and what makes you feel most comfortable.

The Employment Advisor service offers short term employment support but can signpost for longer term support if you need it.

How do I get referred?

To be referred for employment support please speak to your therapist at your next appointment or if you are waiting for treatment, then contact our admin team on 0114 2264380.
