Is EAP counseling confidential?

Yes, EAP counselling is entirely confidential. EAP counselors are required by professional ethics and legal constraints to keep any information provided during counseling sessions secret. Employee conversations, personal challenges, and mental health issues are not disclosed with the firm or anyone else without the employee's express permission. Confidentiality fosters a safe and trusting environment in which employees can seek help and assistance without fear of judgment or retaliation. However, there may be exceptions to confidentiality in circumstances of immediate danger or when the counselor is legally compelled to report specific conditions, such as abuse. These exceptions are frequently conveyed to the employee during the initial counseling session.
