In the corporate wellness world, we’re seeing more and more clients with stress, burnout and other psychological issues — not just physical ones.


Wait lists to see psychologists are impossibly long. The impact of the pandemic has left our mental health resources depleted. These wait lists are now heavily populated by professionals and executives who are desperately trying to get their focus and game back on. The fact is, even being on the right wait list is a challenge. No two psychologists are the same. Not every psychologist who works in the mental health scene work with the organisational implications of workplace wellness.

One client of ours explained:

“I spent too much time with my last psychologist unpacking my family history. Sessions were focused on my past and robbed me of the time I needed to work on my NOW”

Understanding the crisis of performance, livelihood and employees’ needs to get on top of their work is imperative in the current climate.

In fact, Work life collision (WLC) dominates our workplace wellbeing problems. It happens when employees become overwhelmed by the demands of their job as well as battling personal issues on the home front.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare – quoted directly from their website here (August, 2022)

  • Between 16 March 2020 and 1 May 2022, over 29.0 million MBS-subsidised mental health-related services were processed.
  • MBS-subsidised mental health services delivered via telephone or videoconference peaked during April 2020 when about half were delivered via telehealth. In the four weeks to 1 May 2022, 29.3% of services were delivered via telehealth.
  • In the four weeks to 1 May 2022, Lifeline received 83,652 calls, up 2.5% and 0.2% from the same period in 2021 and 2020, respectively.
  • In the four weeks to 20 February 2022, Kids Helpline received 23,575 answerable contact attempts, down 5.5% and 9.8% from the same period in 2021 and 2020, respectively.
  • In the four weeks to 1 May 2022, Beyond Blue received 24,441 contacts, up 10.0% and down 7.0% from the same period in 2021 and 2020, respectively.

These statistics reflect a parent, a child, a friend, a client, a colleague and is bound to have impacted your staff wellbeing and morale.

With work life collision only set to increase, you will find the 6 EAP sessions provided inadequate. At The Centre for Effective Serving, we can deploy Clinical Psychology resources for your team. We are a team of psychologists who have worked in the burnout space long before the pandemic swept our world. We already worked in the space of immediate, practical and solution focussed support to workplaces.
