Mental health-related absences can be costly for employers and, if they persist or intertwine, they can jeopardize an employee’s ability to work. Short therapy has proven effective in addressing common stress situations among working-age individuals, potentially avoiding lengthy sick leaves and promoting sustained work capacity.

On average, about 5% of your employees may need short therapy – it’s a manageable investment.

Short Therapy in a nutshell


Cost-effective and impactful solution for the employer

From the employer’s standpoint, providing short-term therapy as an employee benefit or part of mental health support services often results in fewer sick days, contributing to cost savings.

On average, mental health-related sick leaves last for around 10 days, with a cost of 370 € per day for the employer.

Employers have the flexibility to set limits on the number of therapy sessions covered.


Short therapy in practice

  • The duration of short therapy is usually 7-20 sessions. A skilled therapist always assesses whether the client benefits from short therapy and determines the needed number of sessions.
  • Typically, an employee is guided toward short therapy based on the assessment of a workplace psychologist or an occupational health physician. Alternatively, you can allow employees to book short-term therapy themselves, enabling them to seek help when they feel it is necessary.
  • Short therapy is available in Finnish, English, Swedish, and Spanish.
