I wanted to take the time to write to you to tell you what a consistently positive experience we have had from Red Poppy. Feedback from people who I have referred to the service has been excellent, and the warmth, empathy and professionalism that I have received when contacting you has just been outstanding.

Thank you so much and I look forward to more joint working with you in the future.

IMASS are both proud and privileged to have enjoyed a strong and mutually supportive relationship with the Red Poppy Counselling Company for over 15 years.

Access to expert and reliable counselling which is flexible enough to meet the needs of employees and employers alike, has enabled IMASS to provide our clients with a comprehensive suite of supporting services and impacted positively on staff relations and in turn absence management.

Red Poppy workers understand that both personal, and work place pressures can, and often do impact on each other at different times and by focusing on balancing these sometimes conflicting needs, Red Poppy has assisted us find lasting resolution to often complex and multifactorial problems which cannot be achieved with medical interventions alone.

Red Poppy’s critical incident support and trauma counselling is also exemplary and a specialist area from which the feedback from our clients has never been anything other than extremely positive.

I’m emailing to thank you and The Red Poppy Company for all your help and advice given to me a few years ago.

I’ve long-since left the organisation that I was employed with then but I have always intended to email you to say how much I appreciated and benefited from the counselling service provided, and that I do hope The Red Poppy Company continues its good work.

Firstly please can I pass on my thanks for your help arranging the recent training here at UWE with Ros.

Secondly I must advise you that we have had an overwhelming response from all of the delegates, they expressed that it was ‘the best course ever’, ‘all staff should attend this excellent course’ etc…

On the basis that the day was a huge success for us I would love to invite Ros to come back and provide us we another round of Red Poppy  treatment for some more of our staff.

We have used Red Poppy since January 2014 to support staff with complex trauma stress resulting from incidents at work or in their personal lives. Red Poppy form a crucial part of our new Health and Wellbeing service- the Staying Well Service- which triages and signposts to the most appropriate support mechanism. Referrals to Red Poppy often follow a high ‘TRiM score’- TRiM being the trauma risk tool that SWAST use to identify potential cases of PTSD. Having Red Poppy as a pathway for the Staying Well Service has proven to be a very effective tool with 93% of staff who completed the evaluation saying that not only did Red Poppy help them stay in work but helped increase their work performance.

I found The Red Poppy Company to be really considerate and helpful in providing a counselling support service for one of my clients.  They provided practical advice on what support they would recommend and they were able to switch on the counselling service almost immediately.
