1:1 and group support

What we offer

We offer 1:1 and group support, either on-site or at an agreed alternative location, for a defined period of time to your employees or students. We develop referrals pathways and treatment and confidentiality agreements in line with existing policies and processes to ensure effective integration of our services.

Working with the individual

Our focus is on helping people understand their behaviours, and finding alternative ways to cope.

Our work has always been based on the idea that drinking, drug use, or gambling is an act that someone does to gain, avoid or escape certain things. Behaviour is learned and maintained in the context of each person’s whole life – this means their  family, employment, housing, biology, cultural background and other personal and social challenges.

We believe that people can resolve problems with the right support and guidance.

Aquarius has always held the view that people have the ability to find their own solutions to their problems.

Our services are underpinned by cognitive behavioural approaches and methodologies.

Our support focuses on enabling people to understand and change their behaviour and thought processes, and ultimately achieve their recovery goals.

Working with groups

We deliver group psycho-education and peer support facilitation to focus on a particular psychological concept or issue and then developing an understanding around identifying and responding in an appropriate way.

We focus on understanding issues (e.g. anxiety), identifying triggers and formulating appropriate adaptive behaviours. We tend to cover the neuro-physiology associated with this as part of the session. For example, this may be multiple staff experiencing high stress levels or multiple students experiencing anxiety.

The way forward

All of the above happens alongside managed specialist mental health disorder referrals with strong connections in local services. We use a Stepped Care approach which allows us to use the appropriate level of intensity and to refer where necessary.

Prices are available on application. Our income is invested in our existing charitable services. Thus, providing our services provides the dual benefit of supporting employees and serving the Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.
