- We are well-versed to provide a wide range of services to empower individuals, enhance personal well-being and attain organisational effectiveness. Besides providing EAP services, our core businesses include crisis management, clinical therapies and assessments, management consulting, and training.
It is a short-term, solution focused, confidential intervention provided to employees and their eligible family members to help meet the challenges of life.
The EAP is a benefit that provides resources and solutions for the problems you encounter. Just as health insurance is designed to address your physical health, your EAP benefit is designed to assist your emotional and mental well-being.
- Family and marital well-being
- Children’s needs
- Advice for supporting ill or aging parents
- Adapting to change
- Managing conflicts
- Team relations
- Work-life balance
- Career motivation and satisfaction
- Stress, anxiety and coping
- Grief and bereavement
- Anger management
- Alcohol and drug dependency
- Health concerns
- Financial questions and concerns
- Legal questions
We also operate an emergency helpline that offers you 24/7 access to EAP.
You will need to identify yourself as an EAP member and indicate the name of your employer.
Otherwise, our client services team will schedule a phone or face-to-face consultation at the earliest possible date. You will then have a set number of sessions with our consultants to address your concerns.
On the first face-to-face appointment, please bring along your staff pass for verification purposes.
If you are referred for other services, there may be a cost. Our consultants will work with you to find the most affordable method to cover the cost of additional services.
However, in cases where managers determine that their staff might benefit from the EAP, managers can either encourage their employees to seek support from the EAP, or make a formal referral. Use of the EAP is not a substitute for progressive discipline or mediation. It can help improve performance by addressing personal issues that may be preventing employees from being their best at work.
If you have been referred by your manager due to emotional or behavioural concerns, we will ask if you would like to sign consent for a release of information so that we can let your manager know whether you attended EAP sessions and followed through with recommendations.
The only exceptions to confidentiality are events of court subpoena, and if your consultant assesses that you pose a risk to yourself or others (acutely suicidal, homicidal, child abuse or elder abuse).
