Counselling services for interpreters

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

To support your wellbeing, you can now access counselling at no cost to you through the Ministry of Justice’s Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP). EAP is a confidential service that operates nationwide with qualified and registered counselling professionals. We are offering you this assistance as we acknowledge that interpreters can be exposed to distressing material while performing their role in court.

There are 2 easy ways you can access support from EAP Services Limited:

Phone: 0800 327 669

Website: Request an Appointment with EAP Services Limited | EAP Services Limited(external link)

Whether you call EAP to request an appointment or complete the online booking form, EAP will ask you to provide your business group. Please advise EAP that your business group is “interpreters".

NOTE: If you are engaged through an LSP that offers counselling services to its employees or contractors you should access counselling provided by the LSP in the first instance.
