Apheideo Associates

Over the Christmas period the messages we receive tell us this is the 'most wonderful time of the year'. This might be true for many of us, but we also know that the reality can be quite different. The holiday season can magnify feelings of loss and loneliness, and the pressures of buying presents, social commitments, or family gatherings can be overwhelming. 

We will continue to support our clients by providing a service over the Christmas season apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. You can get in touch with us through our website or on 02890511360.

We would also strongly encourage you to find out more about advice and support currently available in the community and primary care by visiting this website:


The Apheideo clinical team comprises of a Manager, a supervisor, 4 team members with a gender balance of 2 males and 2 females. Therefore, the team can meet employee requests for a counsellor of a specific gender and the team is large enough to allow for separate counsellors or employee transfer from one counsellor to another should that situation arise. All counsellors are qualified in counselling and have specialist training in mentoring, mediation, crisis intervention and dealing with psychological trauma, and some have notably advanced qualifications in these areas. Between the team they have 150 years of experience of delivering employee counselling and related services in a range of contexts. In addition, Apheideo Associates offers a counselling team that have substantial experience in dealing with equality and diversity issues – race, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion or belief, gender and human rights. Apheideo Associates is committed to ensuring that, as far as is reasonably practicable, the way we provide services to employees and the way we manage our staff reflects their individual needs and does not discriminate against individuals or groups on any grounds. Individually, the team bring a wealth of experience significantly beyond the minimum standards required by most counselling organisations in terms of both qualifications and background. Alongside our roles as employee counsellors, we have held significant professional profiles in roles that are complimentary to the delivery of an employee counselling service – pastoral care, human resource management, senior and executive management and teaching from Secondary through to Higher Education levels. Apheideo Associates have a professional reputation that has both national and international influence in their professional disciplines.
