Occupational Health Service

Occupational Health Service

Marie Church Cognitive Behavioural Services was incorporated in 2017 to deliver occupational health services nationwide that are cost efficient, high quality and professionally led.  As the company grew we began to see that this single approach to health and wellbeing was limited.  Our aspiration is to work with people who want to improve their health and wellbeing and with employers who wish to promote health and wellbeing within their organisations. We pioneered the bio-psychosocial approach to assessing cases referred for long and short term absence. This approach systematically considers biological, psychological, and social factors and their complex interactions in understanding health, illness and health care delivery. Our practitioners are trained and supervised to apply the bio-psychosocial approach to their work in the following ways:

  • Recognise that relationships are central to providing health care
  • Use self-awareness as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool
  • Elicit a history in the context of life circumstances
  • Decide which aspects of biological, psychological, and social domains are most important to understanding and promoting health
  • Provide multi-dimensional pathways for treatment and rehabilitation

One of the functions of occupational health is to assist managers in designing effective rehabilitation programmes that help the sick employee resume productive employment in a timely way. Another function is to smooth the procress to help managers control sickness absence. Our company has proven track records in helping organisations understand absence behaviour and what factors, other than illness, influence workers to take time off sick. We know from experience that not all absence is attributed to sickness and how it is often difficult for managers to understand this. We are committed to using the bio-psychosocial model of health in our work and show managers and workers what factors influence good and bad health outcomes.

Our vision is to be a centre of excellence in the UK market for providing occupational health and psychological services that are proven to be effective.

"Our business required some ad hoc occupational health advice and we came across Marie Church CBT following a strong recommendation from another company. Marie and her team guided us through the referral process and our query was dealt with in a prompt, confidential and professional manner. The advice given was very clear and relevant to our manual work environment. I would definitely recommend Marie Church CBT to any business who is looking for occupational health support whether it be on an adhoc or contractual basis. - Armstrong & Son Ltd ."
