Boutique Psychology Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) allow employers to support their employees – and often their employees’ families – through confidential counselling sessions with psychologists. They help employees to deal with work-related and personal issues that may affect workplace attitudes, performance and productivity.
Access to an EAP provides a safe, confidential environment to understand and resolve issues that might impact their performance at work. Employees can gain invaluable coping skills and strategies. Even the simple knowledge that they are valued enough to be provided with assistance improves morale
An Employee Assistance Program or EAP provides employer-funded, confidential, short-term professional help for employees and sometimes their families confronted with personal issues. While the problems covered by an EAP often impact directly on work, potentially affecting productivity and workplace relationships, they also include personal and family matters causing employee stress.
