As we continue to adapt to new ways of working, it's important that we know how to access support, wherever we're working.
The School has an in-house counselling team for both staff and students that allows you to discuss a problem or situation that is causing concern, or distress that is taking place at work or home. Counselling at LSE is fully inclusive; individuals should feel comfortable approaching staff counsellors regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and religious faith. For more details, see the Staff Counselling webpage.
Alternatively, you may prefer to access confidential telephone counselling courtesy of the Employee Assistance Programme. The EAP aims to provide staff with access to confidential support on all aspects of wellbeing, including counselling, health information, signposting to useful resources concerning personal finance and legal matters, and more.
You can contact the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) by calling 0800 107 6147 (quoting LSE as the name of your employer) or access the online portal by visiting www.colleaguesupport.co.uk (entering code 206011 as your username and password). There's no limit to the number of calls you can make and your anonymity is assured at all times.
