On-Site Counseling Services – Experienced Therapists

Caring for employees' mental health has become essential for employers who want to retain their workforce. On-site counseling makes a difference to both employers and their teams.

On-Site Counseling Services

What is On-site Counseling?

On-site counseling is an excellent way for employers to look after their team’s mental health. 

While work is generally beneficial for mental health, being stuck in a hostile work environment can be detrimental. Employees being affected by other stressors may suffer, too. The World Health Organization (WHO) has found that mental health conditions like depression and anxiety cost the global economy $1 trillion in lost productivity alone. 

On-site counseling is a form of in-person counseling that makes professional mental health care available directly in the workplace. Employees do not need to worry about making and keeping appointments that interfere with their working hours. Instead, they have an opportunity to see their on-site mental health professional. 

According to the WHO, promoting mental health in the workplace reduces absenteeism and increases productivity. After surviving the economic challenges of the pandemic for two years, few companies can afford to lose out on productivity and improved employee retention.

How does TrueCare™’s Onsite Counseling Work?

Like all of TrueCare™’s mental and behavioral health care services, the platform’s on-site counseling services are based on a unique and adaptive approach.

Mental health challenges differ from physical health concerns so far that their signs and symptoms can vary widely between individuals. That means a one-size-fits-all approach will not work well. Moreover, companies differ widely in company culture and opportunities to offer on-site counseling services. 

TrueCare™’s approach is flexible enough to offer a high standard of care while remaining flexible and adaptive to the employee’s and the organization’s needs. As a business, you benefit from providing your employees access to counseling when they need it without having to employ a full-time counselor or team of counselors. 

Why should you consider TrueCare™ for Onsite Counseling Services?

TrueCare™ is a proven provider of mental health care counseling services and health care in a corporate environment. Over the past few years, our team has organized mass vaccinations on-site and provided Covid testing facilities to businesses of all sizes. 

We work with a wide range of counselors across the country. Your HR team will never be stuck when you need employee counseling. A counselor will be available when your team needs help. 

Our counselors bring a wealth of versatile experience to their on-site counseling practice. They understand the workplace environment and the specific considerations that go with it. All counselors are fully licensed and highly qualified. 

TrueCare™ can supply general counseling services to your business and specialist support for specific conditions. Depending on your industry and the individual concerns of employees, your organization may require one or the other. Many businesses opt for a combination of both. 

On-site Counseling Process

Like other forms of counseling, on-site counseling starts with a thorough assessment of the client and their concerns. 

Counselors take their time to understand the underlying causes of the concerns their clients raise before they recommend a course of treatment. Counseling is most efficient when it is based on an individual approach, with the type of therapy based on the client’s concerns. 

The number of sessions needed can vary widely depending on the conditions that need to be treated and the length of time the problem has existed. In some cases, counselors may suggest bringing other team members into the counseling process. 

Many clients report a notable improvement in their concerns after just a few sessions.

Is Home-Based Counseling Effective?

Home-based counseling brings mental and behavioral health services into your home. This type of counseling allows you to access support where you are without traveling long distances. 

Clients also benefit from increased privacy when they opt for home-based counseling. They can take advantage of mental health support without involving other people. Home-based counseling is also an excellent option for children to access mental health care and entire families or couples.

Home-based counseling can be as effective or even more effective than visiting a counselor in their practice or choosing online counseling services. 

Pros and Cons of Onsite Therapy

There is no perfect form of counseling that works for all clients and mental and behavioral health conditions. Whether at home, online, in a counselor’s practice, or the workplace, each form of counseling has advantages and disadvantages. 

Advantages of on-site counseling services:

  • On-site, counseling makes therapy more available to those with a busy work and home life schedule.
  • Offering on-site counseling can help remove the stigma around mental health in the workplace.
  • On-site counseling services show prospective employees that the company takes employee well-being seriously.

 

Disadvantages of on-site counseling:

  • Employees may be reluctant to be seen to require mental health services in a work environment.
  • Some employees might feel that there is no time to care for their mental health during their working day.
