We all understand that in order to work effectively we need to be healthy mentally, emotionally, physically and culturally. When you feel good, you dedicate your skills to your work. If one does not feel good about himself or herself, then it is quite difficult to give 100 % of your knowledge, skills and positive attitude towards your work. Here is where you can use Employee Assistance Program through your benefit package at work and receive counseling for yourself and your loved ones. By helping employees resolve personal and work related problems work performance will become better. In addition, receiving counseling employees will come to work and it is cost effective. It can reduce absenteeism, reduce attrition, increase productivity, and make managing easier. The following are some of the benefits of receiving EAP counseling:

A major new study by Professor John McLeod of the University of Abertay, Dundee, shows that COUNSELLING can reduce levels of stress in the workplace by more than 50 per cent. Professor McLeod says that after Workplace Counselling: "Levels of work-related symptoms return to the normal range for more than half of all clients". Levels of sickness and absence ALSO fall by between 25-50%. Our EAP therapists are culturally diverse and highly credentialed. EAP therapists have experience in all aspects of diagnostic assessment, counseling, crisis intervention, work related death. They are also highly experienced in training, supervisory/management consultation and work-group dynamics. A stressed employee (whether the stress arises from the workplace or from outside), will usually not perform up to standards and will create a risk factor for others.

If you are having home or work related problems or personal issues utilize your benefits and receive counseling from trained therapists. Therapists will help you find strategies to resolve the issues and be able to concentrate at work. An EAP is designed to help your employees cope with problems affecting them, irrespective of whether the root cause may be work or home related. Employees can access confidential counselling advice and information on a wide range of issues linked to work or personal matters - concerns that they might not prefer to voice with managers colleagues or their family. The confidentiality of Employee Assistance can go a long way to helping put minds at rest. Employees are either given confidential counselling or information over the telephone, or they are carefully assessed for onward referral for face-to-face counselling at a time and place that is convenient to them. Contact with a face-to-face counsellor can usually be within 24 hours. The number of required sessions normally varies between six and ten, based on the needs of the employee and your contract with us. Counsellors are available who are fluent in a number of international languages.
