This is the second time I have used the service, I have found it invaluable in assisting my being able to remain at work and do my job to a high standard. The situation has not changed and I have no influence over it. I do however exercise my influence over how I cope with it now.EAP user
Testimonials are important to use to help show the value of the EAP and its effect on improving mental health at work.
I have been very happy with the help I have received from Claire. She has been very supportive and put me completely at ease. I really appreciated being able to access this service through my company.
Saving me from time off work was not of paramount concern initially; however with continual support and insight into coping strategies I have re-discovered that I am the capable, confident individual I once thought I was.
I was unaware of this facility. I am sure other colleagues are in the same position. Could this service be advertised more openly?
The issue I came for assistance with was personal and not work related yet in dealing with it my emotions at work have improved so much. This sis a great service which also makes me feel valued by my employer. Thank you.
These sessions were excellent – I would definitely recommend this service as it has helped me more than I thought possible. In what seemed a very short period of time, Dani dramatically improved my state of mind. At the end I felt quietly jubilant.
I feel more in control of my life than I have for years.
EAP users voluntarily offer their testimonials
I would recommend anyone to use this service preferably before they need to have sick time due to stress levels.
This is the most helpful process that I have ever followed. Pat has really helped to turned my life around
This is a very worthwhile and important service for us particularly when having to deal with bereavement and should not be restricted to a limited numbers of sessions,
With out this service I strongly feel I would have declined to the point of having to take time off sick. This would have been long term sick-ie 2 weeks or even more. I feel I am in control now and would not let my situation go on to the point of having to take time off work.
Thank you for the introduction – I am amazed that 3 hours can change so much
The most difficult part was actually accepting I would benefit from the service. Once the call was made and the first session attended it became easier. I am very glad I took advantage of this service.
Its been a life saver!
Employee uses less medication after support for EAP
I am overwhelmed by the support I have received via this service. Firstly the access to the counselling via work I feel is superb, the fact it is confidential and even offered to staff in the first place is proof that I have a understanding and supportive employer. The EAP themselves were excellent, they were polite, understanding and caring. I was shocked how quickly my request was dealt with.
I have been depressed for many years and on anti-depressants. I am now coming off these and am feeling great.
EAP users reduce absence from the workplace
It is difficult to quantify how many days have been saved from taking days off work as the service received was as good as to wade above that feeling.
Wider publicity/ awareness within the company that this service is available to employees may facilitate a more preventative health role.
It is difficult to say how many days off have been saved. I have had two days off but feel this could have been considerably longer had I not fell able to cope with the situation.
One of those company benefits you don’t appreciate at all until you actually need it- then it is invaluable.
My daughter received bereavement counselling, this has helped her greatly and us as a family
