Best to approach corporates direct offering your services. I mean, the NHS will be cutting soon.

I wonder what the Tory Party approach is to mental health nowadays?

True. Therapy can help you to deal with the emotional 'fallout' of these events. Pills WILL just numb you to it and the feelings of loss - anger,sadness etc. will still loiter beneath the service,Need to learn to negotiate these emotional rapids.

I can't see money going towards more counsellors given the financial malaise.

I was on the books of an EAP - Employee Assistance Partnership - years ago, which provides employers with therapists. Sadly there won't be much money around now, to pay them if businesses going bust.

I will prob'ly end up working privately for reduced fees - I have done THAT before when I gave my services to charities like Victim Support and MIND.

Unless the PTB cut pensions I can afford to do this - for expenses only.

I have an income - albeit a small one - and a home that is paid for. I can afford to work for very little. I only resent it when people undervalue a donated service. If I charged my full professional fee, few could afford me.

Doesn't seem to stop GPs tho'.sad.gif

I hear that Unis are hiring counsellors to help stressed exam students and to help staff in the coming redundancies.

Unis have counsellors onsite - if they are letting staff go they won't be taking on more expense - unless they get in a load of final-year counselling students who work for nowt. I trained counsellors who could get work whilst training - 'cos they were free - but who were let go when they qualified and were payable.dry.gif S'funny it dun't happen to any other health care worker.

Also most organisations are ageist. They don't care how many years folk have under their belts. Old is defo. NOT ok.unsure.gifunsure.gif

True. For better or worse, I think we should expect a less namby-pamby approach to these things over the next few years. Without wishing to sound unsympathetic to those with problems, I think there's going to be something of a paradigm shift - a more "pull yourself together, man" approach.

The days of people (particularly those working in the public sector) having months and months off work due to "stress" are numbered.

I've never known a depression that wasn't solved by an hour long run and a good feed of oily fish and veg.

:lol:

I've got to hand it to you, your trolling is consistent.

He's in Swansea. As Dylan Thomas once said, 'an ugly lovely town' and 'the grave yard of ambition'.
