Our EAP services – tailored to the needs of your organisation

Transformative’s EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) is an EAP with a difference. Most EAPs offered by health insurance companies are payable in advance to a fixed fee based on the number of employees to be covered. At Transformative our EAPs are pay-as-you-go. You only pay for the services that your employees use, at the time they use them.

The other major difference is that you can decide what proportion of the support you pay for. You can decide to cover the whole cost or any percentage of the cost, with your employees covering the balance. You can even categorise treatments, so that the costs for some (work-related stress, for instance) are fully covered, whereas others (weight loss programmes or quit smoking, for instance) are only partially subsidised.

Transformative’s EAP services are delivered through the Transformative Mind and Body Wellbeing Centre in the heart of Wicklow Town. The Centre offers a range of therapeutic services delivered by highly qualified and experienced therapists designed to help people of all ages and backgrounds and in all situations.

At the beautiful, restful clinic in the heart of Wicklow Town, the Transformative team provides psychotherapy and counselling, as well as acupuncture and hypnotherapy. The clinic hosts six psychotherapists, all qualified experts and members of the IACP (the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), two clinical hypnotherapists, both members of the ICHI (Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapists of Ireland) and one acupuncturist.

The Team delivers highly effective programmes and treatments for work-related stress and anxiety, as well as for depression, general anxiety, panic attacks and fears and phobias. Individual members of the team also have specialisms, and additional qualifications, in couple counselling, PTSD and eating disorders.

Under a Transformative EAP, your staff have the option of being treated at the Transformative Mind and Body Wellbeing Centre (address and directions on our Contact page), in your offices, if facilities allow, or even in the comfort of their own homes.

Our EAP services are tailored to the needs of your organisation. We can offer as many or as few services as you and your staff require and we can agree whether individual services are to be fully or part funded by your organisation. In order for your staff to access services easily we establish an online portal, at no additional charge, via which your employees can select the service(s) they need and apply in confidence without compromising robust governance of the scheme.

Any employee using Transformative’s EAP services is guaranteed kindness, empathy and understanding from the Transformative team and as with all of our treatments they are also guaranteed complete confidentiality.

Transformative’s EAP services can be offered as a stand-alone or as part of a broader Corporate Wellness programme that might also include Wellness Programmes, Resilience Training, Stress Management, Hypno-Coaching, and Team-Building.

How do your EAP services differ from the insurers’ offerings?
There are two main differences:
i. The first difference is that most insurers operate an advanced payment model at a fixed rate based on the number of staff to be covered. At Transformative we operate a pay-as-you-go model in which you only pay for the treatments that your staff use at the time they use them.
ii. The Second is that you can decide whether you part or fully fund those treatments. This is entirely up to you and will be discussed fully during our consultation with you. Many of our clients like to offer a range of services, some of which are fully subsidised (work-related conditions such as work-related stress and anxiety, for instance) and some of which are part-subsidised (more personal wellness-related conditions such as weight loss and quit smoking, for instance). We can set your scheme up so that all services are subsidised to the same level or create a number of categories of service with different levels of subsidy.

If you operate a pay-as-you-go system, how can we estimate staff take up and therefore the cost of the scheme?
According to the 2013 ‘Market Watch’ report from EAPA (The UK Employee Assistance Professional Association) in the UK, average take-up is about 10% of employees offered assistance, with 16% take-up considered high usage. We find this to be approximately accurate and can help you estimate costs based on this industry standard.

How do our staff access the EAP?
We create an online portal, at no additional charge, that lists all the services we agree are to be made available and that enables staff to select and apply for the services they need in confidence.

How long do your EAP services take to set up?
Initial consultation to scheme go-live can be as short as two to four weeks. All our services and experts are already in place. All we need to do during our consultation with you is to agree exactly which services you wish to offer your staff and the levels of subsidy you wish to apply. We then set up your employee’s dedicated online portal, which takes approximately one week to implement.
