An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) allows organizations to provide confidential professional counseling at no cost to their members (and sometimes to immediate family members). EAP is a blanket term and can be applied to non-employee members of organizations such as students or other individuals to whom an organization would like to extend such a benefit.

Studies have shown that happier, healthier team members make for more successful teams. Individuals who get the help they need can avoid burnout, and counseling can increase the retention of team members. Students who have access to counseling services have been shown to have higher academic performance. Furthermore, EAPs have consistently demonstrated increased savings compared to the costs associated with burnout, absenteeism, and team member turnover.

At TELL, we pride ourselves on providing psychological care at the highest standards. All of our clinicians hold at least a masters degree in psychology, counseling, or social work. They are fully licensed in their jurisdictions and have completed rigorous practicums and training as part of their licensure requirements. TELL requires that all counselors maintain current licenses in order to practice. We offer counseling services by bilingual counselors and in multiple languages. As a long established mental health organization in Japan, our clinicians are intimately familiar with the challenges that individuals can face in Japanese society.

For EAP Members (students/employees/organization members)

We believe that anyone can benefit from counseling. People will come to counseling for a variety of reasons, and counseling can provide many benefits. Here are some reasons why you might seek out counseling. 

  • You just need to talk to someone who can be a neutral third party and a sounding board. 
  • You feel that stress is affecting your health.
  • You have worries, feelings, and thoughts that are difficult to talk about.
  • You feel depressed or are managing your stress in unhealthy ways (drinking, smoking, risky sexual behavior, gambling, etc)
  • You have certain issues that you wish to address such as interpersonal conflict, career issues, study/working skills, etc.
  • You want to learn more about yourself, grow as a person, process past trauma, etc.

No, you may talk about any issue that you like in your counseling sessions. All sessions are confidential and nothing about the sessions will be shared with anyone. Your company/school/organization will not know that you are receiving counseling at TELL.

It depends. There are many different types of therapy, and there are some approaches that are suited to certain types of struggles. Many therapists will mix different types of therapy styles to best suit you. Here are some of the most common styles:​

  • Client Centered Therapy – Your therapist acts as sounding board, provides you with a safe place to listen with non-judgement. This is usually the basis of any therapeutic relationship.​
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Is more focused on problem solving, and it helps you to identify behavior and thought patterns that aren’t working and help you build skills to use in the “real world”​
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)– Uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies along with commitment and behavior-change strategies to increase psychological flexibility. In ACT, you learn about your emotional and behavior patterns and learn to accept difficult emotions rather than working against them.

Counselors have many different styles and different types of training. They will often specialize in working with certain issues or with certain groups. Take a look at our counselor profile page to see our therapist’s different specialties.

It may take a couple of sessions for you and your counselor to establish a working relationship. However, if you feel like you are not clicking with your counselor, you should not be afraid to change. The number one factor that determines the success of your counseling experience is the relationship and trust between you and your counselor, this is more important than any training or qualifications that your counselor may have. If you are having an issue with your counselor, feel free to reach out to us at development@telljp.com.
