Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Services

Life and business can at times provide challenges that can affect both how we function personally and professionally. When addressed early and with the right support, people are usually able to resume normal and often improved functioning.

At Workplace Wellness Australia, our experienced psychologists and practitioners can provide professional support through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). We understand implementing new initiatives can have teething problems amongst employees so to assist with the successful integration of the EAP into your organisation, Workplace Wellness provides education to both management and employees on what the EAP can offer them. Management understanding of the EAP is vital for the program to be accessed as a resource and source of assistance for employees and management.

How can an Employee Assistance Program help?

The aim of the EAP service is to provide employees with short-term, solution-focused counselling and provide support when faced with adversity that challenges their general wellbeing, health, workplace effectiveness or personal life.

How are Employee Assistance Program appointments conducted?

Our personal and tailor approach means we provide our services to you based on your needs. We offer phone, skype and face-to-face appointments based on preference and suitability. Delivery times are based upon the need and the urgency of the matter at hand. We are able to offer immediate support in a variety of forms when required.

Our scheduled solution focused supportive counselling sessions are provided at times most convenient for employees. This includes weekends and evenings as we understand that employees may not feeling comfortable using our services in the workplace and during work hours. Sessions will usually be available within days and our commitment is to provide a suitable time slot within one week.

All of our practitioners are registered with a minimum of five years’ experience, so you and your employees can trust you are being supported by professionals who excel in their field – we know how important and sensitive workplace and personal issues can be which is why we do not engage inexperienced psychologists, provisional practitioners or students to provide this service.
