Employee Assistance Programme

With our roots as a mental health charity, we truly believe in our vision of “wellbeing for all”. In practice, that means ensuring that our wellbeing provision is easily accessible to as many people as possible. Our Employee Assistance Programme is at the core of that service provision. It supports employees in dealing sensitively with professional and personal issues that may impact on both their work and home life, and is characterised by a process of soft assessment, followed by appropriate referral into counselling or our specialist information services. Counselling sessions take the form of solution-focused brief therapy, an outcome-driven approach that sets goals for the individual, identifying and building on existing resources, strengths, qualities and skills to address the current challenges they are facing. The service also provides:

24 hour confidential telephone support line

Available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and accessed via a Freephone telephone number, it is staffed permanently by a network of accredited and highly experienced Counsellors who will provide immediate and confidential telephone counselling and support.

Face to face off-site counselling

Accommodating individual requirements, counselling can be provided off-site in suites located in all major towns throughout Ireland, in a supportive and comfortable environment.

Financial, legal and other specialist information

Many personal factors can influence our mental health & wellbeing, and in addition to our counselling service, we can provide information and advice on financial, legal and other specialist areas.
