Charity EAP support

This support option provides a more flexible, and tailored service compared to traditional EAP offers. This allows for your organisation to refer staff/beneficiaries to us for a comprehensive Wellbeing Assessment, followed by Anxiety UK membership, recommended resources and therapy support. The 1 hour Wellbeing Assessment covers self-care, resource recommendations and therapy service recommendations. Following the assessment the staff/beneficiary will receive an Anxiety UK membership. We will summarise the recommendations and report back to the organisation for approval of next steps. Should the client require therapy we can allocate them to one of our Anxiety UK Approved Therapists funded by your organisation.
