How does EAP Empower Pacific Work?
One to one counselling
We assist companies to promote EAP in thier organisation so all employees are aware of EAP services. Everyone experiences difficulties in life, and EAP is there to support employees and students to recover and perform at their best.
Most employees self-refer to access an EAP appointment, normally at the nearest branch of Empower Pacific, but this may be negotiated otherwise. HR Managers also support employees to access the EAP services. In emergency situations, on-site services are available. Normally up to three counselling sessions are offered depending on the agreement with the company.
The confidentiality of employees and students who participate in counselling, is the cornerstone of EAP professional counselling ethics.
Employees/students receiving EAP counselling are informed about the scope and limits of confidentiality at the time of initial contact.
Any information regarding employees/students who access EAP counselling will be treated with strictest confidence
