Shepell offers a variety of professional counseling solutions.

Using state-of-the-art technology provided by WebEx, service is customized to the client environment, while security of the data exchanged between the counsellor and client is preserved. Video counselling makes accessing a network of professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, more convenient for employees and their immediate family members. It overcomes limitations caused by people’s busy work schedules, health issues and/or family life. Whether employees are shift workers, single parents with limited time, or family members who may not live at home, this new enhancement gives them access to specialists who may not otherwise be available to them. This service meets the rigorous standards of the EAP Council on Accreditation. Its also another modality offered by Shepell•fgi in addition to the recently launched First Chat—an online chat consultation service that provides employees with accessible, instant, and confidential counselling support.
