Our approach for employers who take responsibility


Meetings, appointments, responsibilities, personal or professional … our everyday lives just keep getting busier and more stressful. Everyone reacts differently to these challenges: some people can cope with them, others struggle.

With MY SEVEN STEPS, your staff will quickly regain their inner strength without being on a waiting list or going through years of therapy. The four sessions (average number required) can be booked and held online via a computer or smartphone. MY SEVEN STEPS is online counseling that treats your employees as individuals with their own unique experiences and values.

Our method is called Value Based Counseling (VBC). VBC was developed by Ipso in the humanitarian field and has proven its worth in a variety of social contexts. The focus on self-sufficiency and personal resources helps people deal with personal crisis quickly. With our sensitivity to language and culture, we can tailor our counseling to each individual who uses it. We offer this short-term method in twelve different languages with native-speaking counselors. Its effectiveness has been proven in controlled and randomised studies.

Ipso Healthcare is a social enterprise providing counseling and mental health services. Its profits help support Ipso’s humanitarian work worldwide.

Value Based Counseling is tailored to the individual and their relationships with other people. It is intended for people who:

  • Are currently experiencing difficulties in ther life
  • Are struggling to cope with the demands of their everyday life, whether personal or professional
  • Are feeling overwhelmned in their personal or professional lives as a result of the current pandemic
  • Have been traumatised by accidents, illness, death or other setbacks in their life and urgently need support.
  • Are returning to work after a period of mental ill health.
