About the Service
Relate Northamptonshire follow confidential guidelines. At no time do we exchange personal details of the individuals accessing the service, although an anonymous demographic report can be produced.
We have a specific telephone number and e-mail address for our Employee Assist service, which will direct any communication to the correct department.
Appointments are usually arranged within five working days dependent upon the availability of your employee. Following the initial assessment session we will agree the best way forward. One session may be enough, or it may be appropriate for your individuals to have ongoing counselling sessions. Each case will be treated individually and will be organised to meet the needs of your employee.
