We continue to closely monitor developments in relation to Coronavirus, following the current PHA and HSE advice based on official assessment of risk and associated steps to take. In light of the public advice issued, and the ongoing, escalating implementation of precautionary measures, we are moving to implement the next phase of our contingency planning.
We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation closely and will update you on any developments as the current situation changes.
Our primary aim is to continue to provide continuity of access to Inspire counselling services for all clients throughout this challenging time. With this in mind, we are moving to a telephone/online video-based counselling service where possible. In order to facilitate the delivery of these services as effectively as possible to you please consider and follow the advice below:
If you are feeling unwell, please call us to cancel and we will endeavour to make alternative arrangements for your appointment.
Should you be calling for a first appointment we will be offering you a telephone/web-based session as appropriate.
If you are already engaged in counselling provision this will continue based on the telephone/web-based model in conjunction with your counsellor.
Should you not wish to engage in telephone/web-based counselling please contact us and we will organise for the suspension of your counselling activity until such time as the advice pertaining to the COVID-19 outbreak allows.
Our 24-hour telephone helpline and the Inspire Support Hub will remain available throughout this difficult time. If you are unsure of your hub pin, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The case for Wellbeing
It is now accepted that mental health & wellbeing and business productivity are inextricably linked, with clear evidence
demonstrating that effective wellbeing strategies create increased employee engagement and motivation, sustain morale
and positively impact the bottom line.
While employers have recognised this, and are investing more than ever in wellbeing solutions, recent research has shown
that this investment is not having the desired positive return on mental health & wellbeing.
In fact, the number of working days lost per person due to absenteeism or presenteeism has increased from 23 to 30
days (Britain’s Healthiest Workplaces, 2017). This is borne out by the latest research into workplace wellbeing across the
UK and Ireland:
Real, Measurable Results
Investing in employee wellbeing brings measurable, positive change to workplaces:
Positive change in wellbeing
Up to 70% significant and meaningful positive change in wellbeing.*
Less Absent Employees
Up to 19% reduction in hours lost because of absence due to personal problems.**
Up to 26% improvement on presenteeism.**
Improved life satisfaction
Up to 22% increase in life satisfaction.**
*Derived from CORE-NET based on upwards of 8,000 employees from across sectors who attended a minimum of 2 counselling sessions.
**Derived from the Workplace Outcome Suite (WOS) - the gold standard metric of workplace performance endorsed by EAPA - completed by the employee before and after counselling.
