Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

What is EAP and how does it help?

An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is an employee benefit program that assists employees with personal problems and/or work-related problems that may impact their job performance, health, mental and emotional well-being.

Research on the efficacy of EAP’s show that working with a Psychologist can improve emotional well-being (↑86.4%), physical health (↑24.8%), work-life balance (↑44.8%), workplace morale and motivation (↑49.5%) and productivity (↑24.0%), improve workplace relationships (↑27.3%), and reduce absenteeism (36% improvement).

 

Our EAP Service

At Your Mind Matters Psychology Services, we have been providing EAP services for a number of years. When you engage Your Mind Matters Psychology Services to be your EAP provider, we guarantee the following:

  • You will be working with a fully qualified Psychologist, not a counsellor or social worker.
  • You don’t have to pay a yearly premium, simply pay session by session (no minimum spend).
  • Since there is no middle man, consultation fees are far less.
  • We can offer sessions face-to-face if you’re local, or if you’re further away, counselling can be conducted via telephone or videolink (e.g. Skype, GoTo Meetings or Facetime).

As we are a small business, and our psychologists are busy seeing clients, we may not be able to provide immediate trauma support or on-site critical incident debriefing in the event of an emergency or crisis. If you wish to access these immediate on-call services, a larger EAP organisation is likely to be a better option for your business.  

If you are looking for an EAP provider and think we can help, please call our office on (03) 9809 5947.
