An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a service provided by employers to help workers improve their wellbeing in an increasingly complicated world. EAP counselling can assist anyone dealing with personal and work-related problems. Employees could be suffering conditions such as anxiety disorders, acute stress, depression, psychiatric conditions and may have suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
However, many people use their EAP proactively to realise their health potential and learn skills in emotional intelligence, communication, assertiveness and other skills that may assist them to gain a promotion or improve their relationships. We all experience challenges in life - relationship breakdowns, conflict at home or work, addiction, accumulative life issues, sleep difficulties, past or present trauma and grief - to name just a few. Having someone to support you through these can be incredibly beneficial.
A confidential counselling service can help employees deal with these issues and get back to leading a happy and productive life at home and work.
According to the IBIS World’s Employee Assistance Program Services, Australia Market Research Report (June 2018), there has been an increase in demand for EAP services in the past five years due to:
