The Workplace Wellbeing service offers free and confidential counselling, short-term therapy and consultation to staff.

The service is run by a team of psychological therapists who have experience of the NHS and its contexts.

Staff can refer themselves to the service for a wide range of issues, including:

  • Stress
  • Relationship difficulties (at home or work)
  • Experience of traumatic or critical incidents
  • Returning to work after a period of absence
  • Anxiety and worry
  • Depression
  • Loss of confidence
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Formal or informal procedures at work

We also provide specific sessions for staff groups or teams. This can include:

  • Workshops to offer generic support around stress or organisational change
  • Group sessions to address specific difficulties within the team
  • Debriefing following critical or traumatic incidents

Who can access support

Anyone who is employed by Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust can refer themselves to Workplace Wellbeing.  

We also provide support to staff employed by Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Junior Doctors on the Yorkshire and Humberside Health Education England programme.
