Employment Advisors in Talking Therapies



The Employment Advisors in NHS Talking Therapies model provides a combination of psychological therapies and employment support for clients accessing Talking Therapies in East Lancashire including Burnley, Nelson, Colne, Accrington, Ribble Valley and Rossendale.

The employment advisors work alongside the therapists to provide ‘information, advice and guidance’ support that enables people to:

Find employment if they are currently not in work or are volunteering/studying and want to find new opportunities for work
Remain in employment if they are experiencing problems at work which means they are at risk of taking sick leave or leaving employment.
Return to their current role if they are on sick or other leave, or find alternative work if they want a career change.
Examples of type of support that our team of EAs can provide include: support with CVs, job applications and interview preparation if you are looking for work. They can also help with the disclosure of mental health issues to an employer, identifying and asking for reasonable adjustments at work, completing return to work plans and much more.

This service is available to those people accessing NHS East Lancashire Talking Therapies.
