EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMMES



An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a service offered by a Company or Organisation to their employees. This benefit/service means that they can avail of a number of counselling sessions to assist them with any problems or issues they may be dealing with, either personal or work related.

The Company can refer the client, or the client can refer themselves for counselling. Issues dealt with can be personal to the client but having an impact on their work life, or the client may be experiencing issues at work that they may need help with. The Company pays for the sessions however, the sessions are confidential between the client and counsellor.

In the first counselling session, the Counsellor will explain how the system works and answer any questions you may have.
