Short therapy for workplaces
We all have the same head at work and at home. The workload is visible at home, and worries at home affect the workplace. The comprehensive offering of mental support services has become one of the most important employment benefits that a thinking worker wants from the workplace.
Take care of your staff’s most important capital – also offer the opportunity for short therapy.
Researched, effective treatment that supports change
Short therapy is a researched effective form of treatment that supports change when the ability to work is at risk due to mental well-being challenges, such as exhaustion, life crisis or anxiety. Don’t be fooled by the usage of “short” in short therapy. Short therapy is very goal oriented and aims to go deeper than just scratch the surface. All while finding sustainable methods to cope with change.
From the employer’s point of view, offering short-term therapy as a staff benefit or as a mental health support service often reduces sickness absences and thereby brings cost savings. The comprehensive mental well-being support services at thinking workplaces are also a significant factor in attracting and retaining experts.
An effective work ability restorer
Short therapy is an effective restorer of work ability for the typical challenges of mental well-being: anxiety and mood symptoms. Working with an experienced and expert brief therapist in just a few meetings clears up thoughts and helps solve problems encountered in everyday life or at work.
In short therapy, current operating models are structured and we look for ways that work better together, both in relation to ourselves and others. Short therapy clarifies thoughts and helps to build an understanding of one’s own situation. Brief therapy can also be the first step towards longer therapy, which is recommended if mental well-being challenges are recurrent or have roots in childhood. The employee is not left alone when looking for a therapist, but gets started in short therapy.
Based on an occupational health psychologist's assessment, or a self-booked employment benefit
Typically, the employee’s direction toward short therapy is based on an occupational health psychologist’s assessment. The employer can also define short-term therapy as a self-bookable employment benefit, in which case the employee can reserve time for short-term therapy at the expense of the employer. Short therapy appointments are available remotely and at our therapy offices in the capital region, Tampere, Turku, Oulu and Vaasa. Short therapy is always tailored to the employee’s needs, and the duration of the therapy is usually 5-20 times.

Experiences from different organizations (in Finnish)
- SOK päätti tarjota henkilöstölleen lyhytpsykoterapiaa – sairauspoissaolot vähenivät kolmanneksella, ja säästöä kertyi puoli miljoonaa euroa:”Satsaus on ollut 16 000 euroa tähän lyhytterapiaan ja ne vaikutukset ovat satojatuhansia euroja eli suunta on aivan mahtava”, toteaa SOK:n henkilöstöjohtaja Mari Junnilla.
Elinkeinoelämän keskusliitton asiantuntijalääkäri Auli Rytivaaran mukaan työnantajan tarjoamaa lyhytterapiaa on helppo puoltaa: “Kyllä se on toimiva ratkaisu sekä taloudellisesti että inhimillisesti. Päästään puuttumaan huomattavan varhaisessa vaiheessa, jolla saadaan ihminen toimintakykyiseksi eikä välttämättä tarvi jäädä töistä ollenkaan pois.”
- Porin kaupunki löysi lyhytpsykoterapiasta lääkkeen mielenterveyspoissaoloihin – viime vuosi toi jopa 182 000 euron säästöt: ”Viime vuonna Porin kaupungilla oli yli 520 päivää vähemmän sairauspoissaoloja mielenterveyssyistä kuin sitä edellisenä vuonna.”
