Dealing with Work Stress
The workplace can be a stressful environment in which there is significant competition and pressure to perform. Work schedules can be demanding and it is often difficult to balance work and family life. Financial stress contributes to the pressure to keep up. People often seek out work stress management therapy to talk about work-related anxiety, challenges with co-workers and bosses, and situational stressors that may interfere with concentration and job performance. Work Stress Management can help people decrease stress, increase assertiveness, and manage conflicts in better ways,
Clients also often seek out counseling when job dissatisfaction is causing significant unhappiness, hopelessness, stress, and anxiety. A job or career change may seem impossible and unrealistic, and one may feel very alone. Therapy can help to normalize these feelings and assist clients in gaining insight into their career paths and making decisions that support their happiness. Just having someone to talk to other than friends and family can decrease anxiety and shed perspective on various situations, leading to feelings of increased confidence, control, and personal satisfaction.
