Our research informs us that stress accounts for approximately 31% of absence within Schools/Academies. The SAS counselling service are doing everything we can to improve that statistic for the Schools/Academies we work with. SAS offer solution focussed therapy sessions to all staff in an environment that is most beneficial to the staff member (this can be face-to-face or over the
telephone). Like all our well-being services, the counselling is offered to staff whether they are still working in school or absent through illness, and is completely confidential.
Furthermore, the ailment that is causing the need for counselling doesn’t need to stem from a work issue. If for example counselling is needed due to issues outside of the workplace, SAS can support.
