Employee Assistance Program – Dr. Jan Philamon

Dr. Jan Philamon    Quals: BA (Hons) Psychology, D Teaching, JP (Qual) Qld, PhD, MAPS.

EAP: An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a work-based confidential intervention program designed to enhance the emotional, mental and general psychological well being of all employees, including management. It also includes services for immediate family members.

The aim is to provide preventive and proactive interventions for the early detection, identification and/or resolution of both work and personal problems that may adversely affect performance and well being. These problems and issues may include, but are not limited to, work-related or personal relationships, health, trauma, substance abuse, gambling and other addictions, financial problems, depression, anxiety disorders, communication problems, and coping with change.

Counselling Approach: EAP’s typically provide a limited number of sessions with a psychologist, usually three to start. The first session is used to identify the issues and set goals that will be achievable in the time frame provided by the work-place. Because of the short time frame, an eclectic approach is used with emphasis on a positive, solution focused approach to treatment. Other therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and compassion focused therapy are all used as required to meet the needs of the client.

Current Availability: Usually within 1 to 2 weeks.

Fees: There is no out of pocket cost for approved EAP appointments. General costs run along a sliding scale depending on circumstances, usually $195 for standard appointments. Medicare and health rebates may apply. Please contact reception if you require reduced rates.

Practice Location: 16-18 Beenleigh Redland Bay Road, Loganholme, Brisbane.
