Benefits of Working with SESLHD

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

SESLHD offers a confidential and independent Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to assist you in meeting the challenges of both your work and personal life, and for improving your life overall.


This is a professional counselling and coaching service that offers confidential, short-term support for work-related and personal issues.

You and your immediate family can access up to 4 counselling and coaching sessions per year.

The service is strictly confidential - if you decide to access your EAP your details go no further than the EAP organisation, and are not passed onto anyone in SESLHD.

Your EAP can help with a range of issues such as:

  • Work-related stress
  • Harassment and grievances
  • Relationship or family matters
  • Mental health concerns
  • Personal crisis or trauma
  • Managing life as a working carer - those who care for others outside of work and have little time for their own self-care. EAP can help with general support or specialist career, money, and lifestyle coaching.

But it’s not just about problems - - EAP can also help with Specialty Coaching Services to improve your life
