Q.  What type of support can I get?

We want wellbeing for all, and encourage self-help and early intervention. 

Through your EAP you can access to self-help information if something is causing you unhappiness or trouble. We encourage people to spending some time reflecting and using self-help tools. You also have access to a 24hr telephone helpline where you will be directed to resources that may help. If you are still feeling distressed you may want to use structured telephone counselling or face to face counselling. 

Q.  What is counselling?

In short, it is a process that allows you to work through issues that may be causing you distress with a qualified professional counsellor.

Counsellors listen carefully and make sure that you have defined the problem areas in your own terms and help you plan what you want to do next. 

Q.  How confidential is counselling?

Counselling is highly confidential and carried out within strict boundaries.  

Counsellors work to a strict Code of Ethics – they will discuss with you the limits to their confidentiality and ask you to sign a declaration before moving forward with counselling.
