A warm welcome from Priory House Consulting

For many years now I have been working with employers and associates on making it easier for people who have had to leave the workplace to return safely and effectively. We have concentrated on absence due primarily to disability, accident and sickness, whether related to physical or mental health.

It has been good to witness very encouraging improvements in how such a return may be facilitated – not least of which being the continuing development of assistive technology. I have also been actively involved in many campaigns to ensure that anyone with a disability is treated fairly and without prejudice and have helped a number of charities engage more effectively with the insurance industry in order to achieve their objectives.

As Dr. Johnson (a man not without disabilities himself) recognised back in the 18th Century, work can be good for you and an important antidote to depression. It is an important contributor to our personal identity and can bring with it, as well as remuneration, friendships, camaraderie, personal satisfaction, recognition and pride.

All of these play an important role in our mental health and it is no coincidence that mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, are closely linked to worklessness.

So do read on if you want to know more or contact me directly, I am always happy to chat.
