VIDA is Listening Ear’s occupational health counselling service. If you have an issue which is impacting on your health and wellbeing, your performance or attendance at work, then our 1:1 counselling service may be beneficial to you. We offer a confidential, independent environment which can support employees. If your employer is Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, then the Occupational Health Team will refer you to VIDA and pay us directly.

Please contact the team directly on or telephone 0151 443 5780

Alternatively, if your company pays for membership of an Employee Assistance Programme at work, they may also refer you to VIDA and support you to claim the cost of counselling back via the EAP. The benefit of using Listening Ear in an occupational health supply chain is that the ‘spend’ is reinvested back into the delivery of our free community services. This means it delivers against a company’s Corporate Social Responsibility agenda and helps many children, young people and adults in the community.
