We believe that in order to create genuine change and get people living and working better, we need to see past the ‘symptoms’, and get to the causes themselves.

Otherwise you simply paper over the cracks. We realise that not everyone can get the help they need and this is why we are excited to introduce our new initiative for May… the PUSH Employee Assistance Programme – free sessions with our expert Coaches for whoever, wherever you may be.


As some of you might know, we were heartbroken after the tragic news of Mike Thalassitis death by suicide in March. So much so, that we decided to take action to support what we stand for, and offered free psychotherapy sessions at the PUSH Offices throughout the month of April; providing the space to talk and think for anyone that needed it.


Well, for May we don’t want to stop. In fact, we want to do even more. So, we have decided to offer our very own PUSH Employee Assistance Programme, offering expert advice from the amazing PUSH Coaches to anyone who needs it – wherever they might be.


Why are we doing this?


At the heart of our mission, we want to get people living and working better.


We are really proud to work with organisations who want to help their people be the best versions of themselves possible. We do so by creating and executing bespoke programmes with our incredible PUSH Coaches, to help people work better. There’s no doubt that we are in a very fortunate position – we have access to a large network of highly skilled experts in the fields of mental health, stress, leadership, nutrition and more. Which is why we feel it’s important and part of our purpose to give back, and to really fulfil our mission at PUSH – by offering free sessions to people who otherwise might not have access, during Mental Health Awareness Week.


If we can play a small part in helping somebody feel better, we’re carrying out our mission and putting our purpose into action.


What is the PUSH EAP and when will it be available?


The PUSH Employee Assistance Programme is a free service, offering 30 minute sessions with experts in the fields of mental health, stress, leadership, nutrition and more. The service will be available during Mental Health Awareness week from the 13th to 17th May 2019.


Anyone, anywhere will be able to get in touch with the PUSH Team via email and request a session for advice on whatever it is that’s impacting their mental health. We aim to respond within 48 hours to arrange a session with one of our expert PUSH Talent.
