The UK EAPA has published a new guide to support counsellors working with Employee Assistance Programmes.
The ‘Counsellors’ Guide to working with EAPs’ discusses the clinical and commercial aspects of EAP delivery, as well as the practicalities of working as a counsellor in an EAP context. It also offers some hints and tips for affiliate counsellors to support their work with providers.
Neil Mountford, Vice Chair of the UK Employee Assistance Professionals Association, who has led the development of the Guide, said:
“The Guide has been developed to offer practical guidance and information for counsellors and psychotherapists who are already working with EAPs, as well as those who wish to begin work in this area. It’s important to remember that every EAP provider works slightly differently and will have their own processes and procedures for delivering counselling to their clients. This means it’s not possible to create a definitive guide for counsellors to work with EAPs, but the subjects covered in this new UK EAPA publication certainly address the principal issues that any counsellor should be aware of.”
