What is an Employment Assistant Programme (EAP)?

JMC Counselling & Training offers an employee assistance program (EAP) that benefits and assists employees and staff with personal problems and/or work-related problems that may impact their job performancehealth, and mental and emotional well-being. JMC generally offer free and confidential assessments, short-term counselling, referrals, and follow-up services for employees and their household members; the employer pays for this service. Our counsellors also consult with managers and supervisors to address employee and organisational challenges and needs. Many corporations, academic institutions and/or government agencies are active in helping organisations prevent and cope with workplace violence, trauma, and other emergency response situations. There is a variety of support programs offered for employees. Even though EAPs are mainly aimed at work-related problems, various programs can assist with issues outside of the workplace. JMC Counselling & Training have grown and are more economically and socially desirable.


The service is a cost-effective workplace programme designed to assist with productivity and attendance issues within the workplace and support employees in identifying and resolving personal concerns that may affect job performance.

These issues might include stress, financial, drug or alcohol, emotional, depression, anxiety, health, family or other personal issues. 

Stress and mental ill-health are two of the most common causes of long-term absence within the workforce in the UK (Simply Health 2016).  Management and employees are often reluctant to seek the help they need, and employers may not have adequate support or services or, in some cases, nothing at all. Early intervention can often lead to management and employees taking days off sick or underperforming at work. 


JMC Counselling can provide counselling and training to help manage mental well-being in the workplace by providing staff and employees direct access to counselling services and training in how to deal with stress, and in most cases, without having to see a doctor at all; this, in turn, contributes to the employing organisation's duty of care to staff and employees.


JMC Counselling will provide your organisation with professional, confidential and emotional support, thus supporting staff and employees with sound mental health and wellbeing that will assist with productivity within your organisation and helps staff and employees get back to normal quickly and safely.
