STAFF COUNSELLING

Counselling is available for university staff who are experiencing distress or other difficulties either as a result of work-related problems, such as stress arising from organisational changes at work, or from non-work related problems which are affecting an individual's ability to work effectively. The service is co-ordinated by the University Occupational Health Service (UOHS) and is completely confidential.

Access to the counselling service is via the UOHS and individuals may refer themselves to the UOHS, or (with their consent) be referred to by their manager or supervisor. They will be seen initially by one of the Occupational Physicians or Occupational Health Advisers, who can then refer them to a counsellor from a panel of external, independent, qualified and experienced counsellors. The staff of the UOHS will not have access to any information given to the counsellor. Information about individuals held by the UOHS is confidential unless the individual concerned has given written consent otherwise.

This new university staff counselling service is separate from the University's student counselling service. For more information or to make an appointment telephone (2)82676 or e-mail the UOHS at enquiries@uohs.ox.ac.uk
