EAP

Confidential   –   Free   –   Accessible 

The EAP is in place to support the mental health, well-being and personal growth/resilience of all employees. Whether you’re not feeling yourself, struggling with challenges in your life, or looking to enhance your capabilities and performance, the EAP has support and resources for you. 

   

For when you’re not feeling yourself, or need some help overcoming challenges – Professional Support

Life can throw up big and small challenges which take a toll on our wellbeing. Sometimes we can feel like we aren’t ourselves or that we are in a “rut” or “bogged down” in stress or worry.

The EAP provides professional support to help work through challenges you are facing, to recapture your wellbeing and/or get out of that “rut”. Common issues the EAP helps people with include:

Strategies

Veretis utilises psychologists and counsellors to provide support, with a caring approach aimed at empowering you with the skills and knowledge to work through the challenges you are facing. We utilise an innovative and proven model of support which is designed to help you start feeling like yourself again as quickly as possible. Our organisation also uses a Stepped Care approach to ensure impactful support is provided. Stepped Care is a system of delivering and monitoring support, so that the most effective yet least resource intensive methods is delivered to patients first; only ‘stepping up’ to intensive/specialist services as clinically required. 

At Veretis we utilise a combination of weekly counselling sessions and an e-portal where you will have access to specifically selected activities allowing practice and further learning opportunities between sessions. This combination has been shown to increase the rate of improvement in wellbeing for individuals presenting to EAP compared to counselling alone. It allows for maximum impact and benefit in the short-term approach of EAP.

For when you want to empower your performance and mental health – RealME 

The best defence is a good offence. Rather than waiting for issues to present or current challenges to take their toll, you can utilise the EAP to help grow your resilience, upskill your emotional intelligence or change certain behaviours (e.g. quit smoking). The RealME resource can help you build on your current performance at work or enhance capabilities in the roles you play in your personal life. This includes preparing for greater responsibility at work and leadership positions. 

Will the resources prevent you from ever struggling or experiencing issues? No, but think of this like a gym for your mental health and performance. These resources will help you engage in positive behaviours, understand your thoughts better, and mindfully react to your emotions in positive ways, to help you to perform at your best and increase your resilience in the workplace and at home. The same way that going to the gym doesn’t prevent every illness, but helps you to be fitter, stronger and happier and able to better enjoy life!
