Discusses the need for counselling in the workplace, the recognition of that need, and the requirements for counselling schemes. Considers the definition of counselling, counselling in the work setting, trade unions, and the choice of counselling scheme. Concludes that the success of a counselling scheme depends on the commitment of senior management to the values of counselling, the design of the scheme, and on the counsellors working effectively in the organisational setting.
