How does it work?
Upon upfront payment of your subscription, you will receive:
your resource pack
a code to access your online courses
a welcome letter from us explaining your entitlements
You will then set your organisation a ‘code word’ and inform both Evolve Wellbeing and your employees of this code word. When an employee wishes to utilise the service, they will simply need to call Evolve Wellbeing to book their appointment and say the code word. This hour will then be deducted from your total. Employees can use up to 2 sessions each before requiring written permission from a manager to utilise more sessions.
What if we need more than 5 counselling sessions?
Depending on the organisation’s requirements, an employee can be referred, and we can then invoice (using a confidential code or invoice number) for payment within 7 days.
The organisation can determine who and how many treatment episodes an employee may access within a designated period. For example, 2 sessions per calendar year.
Once the quota is reached, the clinician will discuss ongoing referral or needs with the client (employee) such as whether they may be eligible for GP Care plan referrals, or private health rebates should they wish to continue with therapy or counselling support.
What else can you offer?
In-service seminars or healthy workplace seminars can also be arranged depending on the organisation’s needs. These can be discussed and quoted on a needs basis.
