Are you a conscientious employer, concerned about your employee’s welfare? Are you concerned that an employee’s performance has tailed off? Think some of your employees may have work, personal or family issues that are affecting their working life? Maybe you are an employee and would like some professional support in dealing with issues at work or at home? Employee assessment and treatment can help return workers to top condition, by helping them understand and cope with internal and external pressures.
We spend a large proportion of our life at work and this can be a time that we either enjoy, cope with or a time of overwhelming stress.

The issues often fall into the following categories:
- Workplace Stress – In 2015/2016, there were 488,000 work-related stress, anxiety and depression cases.

Struggling to cope with home and family life along with those at work, can often lead to pressure and tension at home, potentially creating conflicts within the family home
