“I found it hard to admit that maybe I did need to talk with someone. Once I contacted the EAP service I knew that I would get the help that I needed. They listened and understood. They arranged for me to work with a Counsellor who they knew was experienced and professional. I have to say it really helped. By the end of my sessions I had made some important changes. But contacting the EAP is one of the best decisions that I have ever made.” 

Everyone of us, at some time in our lives, will encounter a personal or work-related problem that impacts on our wellbeing.

In the majority of these situations we can deal with the problem through drawing on our own resources or with the support of our family, friends and colleagues.

But other times the nature of the problem is such that we can’t deal with it ourselves, or the people around us may be part of the problem.

Supporting employees who are experiencing a challenge in their personal, family or work life is a profound way of letting your people know that they matter. 

Presenting issues can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Relationships
  • Addiction – Drug, Alcohol, Gambling
  • Legal
  • Trauma / PTSD
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Family Support
  • Illness
  • Delayed & Complex Grief
  • Stress
  • Work Issues
  • Debt
  • Covid19


Why Enhanced EAP?

AHR’s Enhanced EAP service works to provide your employees with the professional support that can best help them deal with the presenting problem.

Once we talk with them and understand their needs, we arrange for them to work with a Counsellor or Psychologist who can best help them deal with the problem at hand. We don’t just rely on telephone support or fact-sheets as the primary means of support.

Over 95% of clients choose to work on a face-to-face basis with a Counsellor, but tele-counselling is also available for those who prefer this method. And in these Covid times we support video calls via Zoom and Webex platforms.

Our focus in always on ensuring that your employee is taken care of and receives the professional support they need.

Mental ill-health remains the largest category of work-place illness as reported by Occupational Health Physicians in Ireland (THOR, 2019).

Helping the organisation negotiate and manage that personal/professional boundary is an important aspect of our EAP support.

In addition, we support the HR, OH and EHS teams in dealing with key organisational processes that are impacting on individual wellbeing and performance, including:

  • Return-to-work post illness absence
  • Dealing with workplace accidents and critical incidents
  • Managing sensitive issues in the workplace

  • The impact of PTSD and Trauma on both the individual and the organisation.
