Counselling Service

Healthcare is a demanding profession to work in and could leave you feeling stressed and under pressure due to the responsibility felt for the wellbeing of patients.

The support we provide goes beyond protecting you against cases and claims. We’re not only here to protect your career and reputation, but your wellbeing too. 

Dental Protection offers counselling to any members experiencing work-related stress, or stress that they feel could impact their practice. 

Support for members

Our counselling service is provided by our trusted partners ICAS, who offer a personalised and professional service tailored specifically to your requirements and delivered by experienced qualified counsellors. 

ICAS's telephone counselling provides immediate access to support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and face-to-face counselling sessions can be arranged near to you and at your convenience, all funded by Dental Protection.

The service is entirely independent and confidential. 

 

 

Call ICAS on 1800 808 374 or +61 7 3211 8919 from overseas and quote your Dental Protection membership number to book a free session.

*up to 6 sessions are available as part of the free counselling service
