Results from a study published in the Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine indicate that internal EA services significantly reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety…these reductions in mental health symptoms are also strongly connected to subsequent decreases in absenteeism and presenteeism. This research and other research on the area of EAPs can be found at http://www.eapfoundation.org/
Within Helplink’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) we provide our innovative Employee/Staff Counselling Service that is pay–as–you–go, instead of charging a percentage of payroll/retainer. Companies/Organisations sign up to provide this service for their employees that may be in need of some non-crisis mental health counselling. This pay-as-you-go system enables any size of a company (from a small convenience store to a large multinational) to have an EAP service for their staff.
Our Irish based service works very simply, we provide your company’s HR representative, Manager or other designated person with a set of codes that provides 6 appointments to a staff member when issued. Once the staff member redeems the code with us we will invoice the company.
Our low cost Employee Counselling Service is available 7 days a week:
- 9 am to 9 pm Monday to Friday
- 12 to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday
- (Closed Bank holidays and Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve)
Clients can avail of appointments online or by phone nationwide from the comfort of their own homes or other private space (face-to-face appointments also available in Galway City).
All our Counsellors are qualified, Garda vetted, insured, supervised and they are all members of recognised accreditation bodies within Ireland.
Cost for package of 6 appointments = €360 (€60 per appointment)
