Employee Counselling Service has been providing counselling to employed people for over 13 years.

We are a not-for-profit organisation which prides itself on adapting our service to meet the needs of individual employers.

We are a leading provider for Employee Counselling to the public sector in England and currently work with over 200 different organisations.


Our clients include 19 NHS organisations, 15 Scottish Local Authorities and 4 Universities as well as many small to medium sized organisations within the public, private and voluntary sector.

  Our counselling services are provided by a team of counsellors who have extensive experience and who are all employed by our service. We do not use self employed associates. We operate in locations throughout England and are ready to introduce new locations to suit new employers.

All counsellors must, as part of their contract of employment, maintain membership of an appropriate professional body such as British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or the Professional Body for Counselling and Psychotherapy in England (COSCA).

Our in-house trainers offer additional support to employers through a variety of training courses. Our trainers are committed to continuous professional development and keep up to date with research and development in their areas of expertise.

All of our work is monitored by a Committee of Management made up of representatives of the following organisations:

  • Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development
  • Occupational Health Professionals
  • STUC and Employee Representatives
  • Workplace Chaplaincy

Employee Counselling Service is Accredited by BACP and is a Recognised Organisation by COSCA and has achieved ISO 9001:2018certification.
