Employee Assistance Programs (EAP): We often spend approximately a half our waking lives at work. This means that stress and illness originating out of work often affect our work functioning, and how we feel about our work has a huge impact on our day-to-day well-being. EAP’s are a workplace initiative which recognises that employee wellbeing is an important and crucial component of work productivity and performance. It is important to take advantage of your organisation’s EAP to improve your life at home, and at work. Reasons to see a psychologist under an EAP include: managing stress, illness and wellbeing, workplace bullying and harassment, improving work performance, and relationship difficulties.

Counselling Approach:           EAP’s typically provide a limited number of sessions with a psychologist. Tiegan will use your initial session to identify goals that will be achievable in the time frame provided by your organisation, and negotiate ongoing support if necessary. Tiegan uses a positive, solution focused approach to treatment, and utilises evidence based therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and compassion focused therapy.
