FAQ’s about our EAP counselling
What happens during EAP sessions?
We offer sessions that focus on boosting morale and motivation that assist with maintaining productivity in the workplace. We provide strategies for enhancing concentration, memory and decision-making during times of stress. We can also assist with common concerns that can escalate at times of stress like depression, worry, anxiety and insomnia. Sessions are provided based upon a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy framework which is evidence based.
How many EAP sessions should I offer to staff?
We recommend offering staff members a minimum of 3 -5 sessions. Additional sessions can be approved on an individual basis. Sessions could be utilised by a staff member or their immediate family. We recognise that EAP is an investment in your organisation and so we are transparent in our billing practices and only bill for each individual session. There are no set up costs or ongoing annual fees for our program.
Will the EAP support sessions be easy to access for employees?
Yes. Workplace counselling is arranged through a secure online video platform, which offers easy, convenient, and safe sessions to your staff. This approach means that there is no travel time, which makes it easy for sessions to be fitted in between other commitments. We also have offices in Armadale and Beaumaris for face to face sessions.
Are the sessions confidential?
Yes, the sessions are confidential and invoices are anonymised if invoiced individually. Your organisation can purchase a package of sessions for a 12 month period and we will send itemised accounts to keep track of the sessions but all sessions and session content remains confidential (subject to the Privacy Act 2009). If a session is organised as a professional development training session and is educational in nature then we can make some provision for sharing of information to benefit the employee.
When can my staff attend sessions?
Sessions are available Monday to Saturday, as well as after hours. We ensure there is no waiting list and staff can choose their own Psychologist subject to availability.
