Your doctor can discuss your unique circumstances, advise you with initial steps forward, and write an appropriate referral for you. Feel free to provide them with my details for the referral.
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) Employers want the best from their employees and most companies seek the professional services of Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). These services are for their employees and the immediate family members for a set number of sessions to help you get back on track. These services are anonymous to the employers providing only summaries of the number of people accessing the service.
I am registered with Eudoxia and LifeWorks (formally known as Optum) to provide EAP counselling. Check your company's Human Resources (HR) website for more details.

Most will require you to pay for the consultation and take the receipt into them for a rebate.
