Emotional support

Providing space to process emotions

Beam’s case workers each support up to 30 people, helping them get jobs, homes, and skills. These people face vulnerable situations, with a range of issues and trauma in their lives. 

Case workers must navigate complex problems, set boundaries, and make tough decisions on a daily basis. 

Oliva offers a safe, confidential space for case workers to talk about their daily experiences on the job and process their emotions. 

“It’s important to have spaces like Oliva that are completely separated from the rest of the business. Therapy lets our employees make sense of the hard stuff and learn to navigate it better.”

Reduced admin

Removing the burden of finding the right therapist

Previously, Beam would reimburse employees for therapy. But that meant employees still had to search for a therapist, find one they liked, and submit receipts for every session. 

This was a huge admin headache for employees—and emotionally draining on top of their already challenging jobs.

So Beam switched to Oliva and gave employees unlimited therapy—no more sifting through receipts. And with Oliva’s personalised matching service, employees get paired with a suitable therapist within 48 hours. 

“We had some people who weren't in therapy because they didn't know where to look. Now, people tell me they’re really enjoying time with their Oliva therapist.”

Professional development

Supporting new employees to excel

Joining any company can be stressful. You have to learn fast, build relationships, and deal with the anxiety of being on probation.

Now imagine you have a caseload of 30 people who look to you as their source of essential support. There’s a real risk of feeling overwhelmed, fast.

With Oliva, Beam gives new employees the support they need to get up to speed—like stabilisers on a bike. Case workers learn how to set and maintain healthy boundaries to develop their emotional resilience.

“New case workers can take on a lot of pressure on behalf of the people they support. Therapy gives them a place where they can gain perspective and create positive relationships with healthy boundaries.”

The group sessions are so good, you don't have to say a word if you don't want to, and you can really take something away from it. Some of the things I was told to practise have stuck with me.

Oliva Health has effectively released my stress. The therapy session has been surprisingly effective. This is the first therapy session I've had in my life, but it turned out to work out so well.

This service is such a blessing! I’ve had two therapists prior to this, both via the NHS and took up to 1.5 years each to access. Oliva paired me with a therapist within days and offered an appointment within a week.

I’ve always been very skeptical about therapy. However, I needed some help after being unable to handle a personal situation alone, so I decided to take advantage of Oliva. I could not be happier with that decision.

I've been using Oliva regularly for individual therapy & manager coaching for 1.5+ years now as it's helped me massively on my personal and professional journeys. It's without a doubt the most valuable perk I get access to.

Oliva was provided by company and I'm so happy as it finally gave me the push I needed to talk to someone professionally. In my sessions I feel very relaxed, at ease, and, most importantly, listened to.
