Frequently Asked Questions

LifeWorks can help find support and resources to answer questions related to work, life, health, family, or money. People can contact LifeWorks for any issue, challenge, or concern. Advisors and immediate support counsellors are available by phone 24/7.

Yes. LifeWorks takes the utmost care to protect the identity of anyone who uses the platform. The only exceptions to confidentiality include those governed by law, i.e., they’re required to release documents under court subpoena, and have a duty to intervene and report if an advisor or counsellor deems an individual to be at imminent risk of harm to self or others.

The LifeWorks counselling model is short-term and solution-focused, which means that their clinical team will recommend an appropriate counselling plan for the participant on an individual basis, with the goal of helping them address their specific situation. They can access counselling for each challenge or issue that they’re experiencing. In the event that the concern is ongoing in nature, the LifeWorks counsellor will discuss the appropriateness of a referral to a community resource outside the program, and will work with the participant to access this long-term support.

They are highly qualified, and are carefully screened by LifeWorks affiliates to verify their credentials and level of experience. Many of the counsellors have PhDs and MDs; minimally, they’re required to have a Master’s degree in Psychology, Social Work, Educational Counselling, or other related human services field.
