Employee Assistance Program (Workplace Support)

Looking after your employees’ wellbeing should be a high priority for all workplaces. Supporting your staff through their challenges shows that you value them.

Relationships Australia Canberra & Region’s Employee Assistance Program provides a safe and confidential place for employees to talk about concerns they may be having at home or at work.

Through an Employee Assistance Program your staff can access support independent of the workplace in a non-judgemental environment.

Your employees may be facing difficult or challenging times in their personal life; or want to talk through a work-related concern away from the workplace.

Our experienced counsellors can provide support, through individual, couples or family counselling, with issues including:

  • stress, anxiety, fatigue or depression
  • financial concerns
  • relationships and family matters
  • interpersonal conflict
  • caring responsibilities
  • working relationships
  • workplace change
  • substance abuse and/or addiction
  • separation or divorce
  • compulsive or addictive behaviours
  • grief, loss and bereavement
  • work-life balance
  • violence or abuse.


Support can be provided face-to-face, by telephone or online video conference. We can also provide psycho-education seminars in the workplace and workplace mediation services.

The benefits of a workplace Employee Assistance Program arrangement include:

  • a more satisfying work environment
  • enhanced workplace harmony
  • reduced stress
  • increased employee productivity
  • improved retention of staff.
