Are you prepared to play your role in supporting employees and employers to help create more mentally healthy workplaces?

Mental health at work is a big topic of conversation in the workplace, media and in Parliament. As practitioners, we need to be prepared to support employees and employers in creating a positive mental health experience in the workplace.

Whether you’re just starting out in your workplace counselling career, or an experienced practitioner looking to enhance your skill set, this event will help you develop your portfolio of work with organisations.

Together, we will explore the different perspectives that need to be considered including; the client, the counsellor, the employer, the EAP and the supervisor. It will be a dynamic day, with a mixture of talks and experiential sessions to support you to develop your capacity to respond to the nation’s workplace mental health at work agenda, wherever you are in your career.

This event will be delivered by therapists with decades of experience of working with employees, employers, EAPs and workplace counselling services. They’re keen to help develop the expertise of workplace practitioners within our profession.
