You may wish to refer a particular employee with their agreement and with the goal of supporting the resolution of an identified issue, in which case we can assess and make best practice recommendations for care. Alternatively you can offer your employee’s access to self-referred services with a limitation to the number of sessions and with the possibility of incorporating our recommendations for treatment beyond the preset limits if required.
