Stockport Council Service

We offer a counselling service for SMBC employees, based across both of our main sites in Bramhall and Stockport town centre.

Our job is help and support you through a difficult time, whether that is something in your personal or family life or a work-based challenge. We work closely with SMBC to provide the best service possible for employees.

Our skilled counsellors can help with a range of issues such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Work-related stress and work-based issues
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Relationships
  • Family breakdown
  • Trauma
  • Childhood Abuse
  • Domestic violence and abuse

There are two routes to receive support. You can talk to your manager about getting a referral, or ‘self-refer’ by contacting the health and safety team directly.

If you have any questions about how counselling can help or about Beacon, please don’t hesitate to get in touch . If you have any questions about getting a referral or the Employee Assistance Programme at SMBC talk to your manager or the health and safety team.
