More information for employees

We understand the struggles individuals face in life. The initial step of seeking support is the most significant. If your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) with Relationships Australia, this means you can access free* and confidential counselling services.

How can EAP help you?

Our experienced counsellors can help with issues such as: 

  • stress and fatigue  
  • couple and family issues  
  • separation and divorce  
  • conflict and harassment  
  • addictions, including drugs, alcohol and gambling
  • anxiety and depression
  • trauma, grief and loss
  • financial difficulties
  • work and career problems
  • adjustment to organisational change.

Confidential service

Trust is an essential part of this process. We offer a highly confidential counselling service. All personal information and issues raised will not be communicated to your employer, unless you give prior consent.

Who can use this service?

If your employer has an agreement with us, any member of your organisation can voluntarily access EAP services at no cost*. To check if your immediate family members can use our services, speak directly to your manager or call us. 

Seminars and workshops 

Our seminars and workshops focus on issues such as: 

  • balancing work and family commitments
  • managing conflict in the workplace  
  • dealing with difficult people  
  • stress and time management  
  • managing fly-in fly-out relationships  
  • workplace mediation 

We provide an unbiased and non-judgemental service where an independent professional guides individuals/groups through a problem-solving process to resolve conflicts and nurture working relationships.

Our Staff

Our registered psychologists, social workers, counsellors, mediators and trainers have experience working with a range of clients – organisations, individuals, couples and families. All staff work within strict ethical guidelines under our policies and procedures. Clinicians are required to attend professional training and development and receive regular professional supervision.
