Are you suffering from Work-Related Stress?
We all feel stressed at work from time to time but if you feel continually under pressure, dread going to work, have difficulty with colleagues or managers or are suffering from headaches or other physical symptoms, it may be time to seek help.
Do you feel unappreciated or that you are being asked to do the impossible? Is your confidence going downhill? Are you feeling the need to take sick leave because your work is making you ill? You need not suffer alone, counselling can help.
How can Counselling help with Work-Related Stress?
Counselling can help you clarify what the problems are and how to deal with them. It can also help you with stress management, coping strategies and relaxation techniques so that you re-gain confidence and competence.
Employee Counselling Service
Referrals from employers are welcomed. You may notice that an employee seems to be working less efficiently and lacking concentration. Maybe you know that he/she is stressed by a family situation or maybe you suspect that a work issue is causing the problem. Counselling can help.
Group or individual counselling is also available to help employees overcome a traumatic incident at work and, if necessary, work on the symptoms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).
I used to have an anxious feeling in my head whenever I thought about work - which was all the time! Amazingly that has now gone and I have been back at work for a few weeks. The situation hasn't really changed but I now feel more in control. I know what to do about things and how not to get bogged down and harassed.
Of all the help which my company tried to offer, the one thing that made a difference was counselling. It helped me think and see things in other ways. I am now calm and able to cope with whatever comes along.
