What is an Employee Assistance Program?
An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential counselling service offered by employers to their employees to support their well-being in the workplace and in their personal lives.
Mind@Work Psychology offers initial support and assistance to individuals and groups of employees who have personal and/or work-related issues that may impact on their well-being. This includes work performance, safety, communication skills, interpersonal capacity building, workplace morale, and psychological health.
Counselling can be delivered on an individual basis, in groups or through coaching workshops aimed at providing staff at all levels of the organisation with the resilience and skills they need to enjoy high work satisfaction, contribute to a positive workplace culture and achieve performance success.
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides your employees with access to independent and professional counselling funded by your organisation. EAP counselling is aimed to assist employees to; understand and clarify issues that are directly concerning them, including any underlying issues; identify and explore options to address those issues and to develop plans to approach the issues and find constructive solutions.
Counselling is short term and solution based, focusing on resolving employee psychological wellbeing issues with the help of a qualified professional psychologist or counsellor. Counselling gives people the chance to talk things through, which often relieves emotional pressure and clears the way to focus and decide what to do next. Counselling can provide your employees with a sense of direction and a greater ability to achieve their goals.
“We aim to help your staff be happier and healthier, more productive, focused and resilient when managing difficult times both at work and in their personal lives.”
Counselling can either be a once-off service to help an employee deal with a specific issue or we can set-up on ongoing EAP Arrangement to provide access to counselling and support services for staff.
