A Stoke-on-Trent clinic is offering a free health and wellbeing package of support to employers in return for feedback on their pilot project.

Torus Wellbeing Clinic in Shelton is ready to launch the first tier of their Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), after they were awarded European funding earlier this year.

 They’re looking for companies with ten employees or more to give them feedback on the programme, which is designed to help employers support staff health and wellbeing.

The first tier is being delivered on-line with access via a web portal (ideal for access in the workplace or from home), and provides self-help information, on-line meditation, Qi-gong and yoga classes, and a wellbeing workshop. The programme enables a business and their employees to choose health related topics specific to their needs. Feedback gained will help shape the programme going forward, ahead of launching tiers two and three next year.

The clinic in Cemetery Road was set up by  Dr Nicola Brough (PHD) three years ago and already offers a wide range of holistic treatments, classes and services including counselling and psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, nutritional therapy  and craniosacral therapy, colonic hydrotherapy, massage, myofascial release, reflexology, Systematic Kinesiology, Reiki, Yoga, Qi-gong and Meditation.

Dr Brough said: “Given what we have all been going through over the last six months, there has never been a more important time to look after our health and wellbeing. Covid-19 has taken a toll on everyone in one form or another, especially on business and on staff.

“This pilot is about providing tailored support to help people to feel good and function well. An employee’s assistance programme can be a frontline tool to help organisations to address mental and physical health in the workplace. It’s designed to boost staff morale; help increase productivity and we hope reduce any staff absenteeism. 

“Getting feedback from companies in this test phase will be absolutely invaluable for us, it will help us evaluate the pilot and shape what we deliver going forward, ahead of the official launch and the roll out of Tiers Two and Three next year.”

The Mum of two from Clayton added: “A recent study identified that more than 50% of employers asked, said they would like to do more to improve staff wellbeing but didn’t feel they had the right training or guidance to do so – we want to change that and I’d urge any company who would like to take part to contact us.”
