Health and Wellbeing Solutions

The Health and Safety Executive has estimated that a staggering 10.4 million work days were lost in 2011/12 due to stress, depression and anxiety. With our confidential counselling services we can help to reduce absenteeism and ensure that staff are fit and ready to work.

Delivered by a nationwide network of professional and qualified counsellors, we can provide help and support to deal with a wide range of work-related issues and personal problems.

Some examples of the types of issues that we have helped with in the past include:

  • Dealing with stress, anxiety and depression
  • Coping with organisational changes
  • Building self-esteem
  • Dealing with bereavement.

Safe Hands Personal Support Programme

A Trained Ear

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’. With Life & Legal’s Safe Hands solution, your employees can talk to a trained professional in confidence, for free. They’ll provide help and support, whatever the issue – whether its work related or a personal issue.

Generally we offer 2 levels of Safe Hands cover – level one which provides unlimited 24/7 telephone help and and level 2 which still provides the unlimited telephone assistance, but with the addition of inclusive face to face sessions.

However, because our Safe Hands programmes offer complete flexibility we can always build a tailored counselling solution which best suites the needs and budget of our customers.

Over and above the provisions of our counselling programmes, we also offer on site trauma support to employees in circumstances where there has been a critical incident which has affected the welfare of employees.

All of our Safe Hands programmes are offered hand in hand with our other support services such as legal and debt assistance and signposting to local charities and organisations which may be able to offer additional help.

Employees also have access to their dedicated Members area offering:-

  • Advice and help on lifestyle and health issues such as giving up smoking, alcohol advice and cancer.
  • Care in the community – a full range of advice and support for those caring for vulnerable family members such as the elderly, disabled or young children.
  • Easy to understand guides on topics such as what to do if you work and you have been diagnosed with cancer. What should you ask? who should you ask? when should you ask?
  • Money healthcheck – helping employees and their families to budget effectively and identify areas where they can make sensible cut backs.
  • Access to Tradesmen Connect – helping people to find credible, trustworthy local tradesmen. The service also provides testimonials and up to 3 FREE quotes.
  • Access to Rewards – our discounted and cashback shopping portal with great offers and deals from over 2,500 retailers and service providers.
  • Membership to Travel Club – bringing employees and their families holiday and travel discounts and perks such as free first class lounge access.
