Counselling and Support service

Sometimes daily life can seem full of challenges

So it’s reassuring to know you’ve got somewhere to turn when you need reliable information or support, and someone to talk to when things don’t run as smoothly as you’d like.

As a corporate PHC member you and your family have access to a comprehensive counselling and support service provided by AXA Health Services Limited. This counselling and support service is only available to members aged 16 and over.

If you are feeling upset, worried, anxious or stressed or have a medical concern, qualified counsellors are on hand to support you. They will help you to explore and understand your issues and provide remedial guidance and action which could include self-help or face-to-face counselling where clinically appropriate.

Additionally, the service also provides expert guidance on everyday matters such as legal and financial concerns, relationship issues and consumer rights.
