Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Services Brisbane
Improve the health and well-being of your employees with our cost-effective EAP program.
EAP is a confidential and voluntary counselling program for employees. It is available when offered by businesses looking to support and promote psychological health of their employees.
While someone would access EAP through their work, the program is designed to help the individual to both cope with personal and/or work related stress.
If you believe that your staff members would benefit from counselling or you would simply like to promote better mental health at work, accessing EAP services could be the right course of action.
At Brisbane Centre for Psychology, we understand the importance of health and wellbeing. We can help your employees identify the underlying causes of their stress and encourage healthy coping mechanisms.

Employees will be able to receive face-to-face support for a range of issues. These services include support from stress arising from a work conflict, to long and short term mental health challenges, to personal trauma. Our confidential counselling service can extend to the individual’s family members if required.
Benefits may also be extended to your employee’s family members.

Here are some common issues that your employees may require professional counselling for:
