Employee Assistance Program

Our registered, clinical psychologists deliver tailored Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) for organisations, enabling them to offer their employees, and eligible family members, access to free confidential and professional psychological support for personal or work-related issues. Our approach is friendly, caring and focused on providing practical solutions.

EAP counselling provides vital support to improve the mental health, resilience and wellbeing of individuals within organisations. PeopleSense psychologists are available to EAP employees 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for emergency situations and critical incidents. We can arrange for employees to see a psychologist face to face at a location convenient to them or set up an appointment via  telephone or Skype. EAP Counselling can also be provided using Australian Sign Language (Auslan) or with the assistance of an interpreter if required.

Confidentiality and Privacy

Trust is an essential element of this process. PeopleSense by Altius Group is always concerned about client and employee privacy, as such confidentiality is guaranteed.
