Career & Working Life Issues Counselling
Are you unhappy in work? Does the thought of Monday fill you with dread? Are there personalities that you find hard to deal with?
Working life can be very rewarding, it brings satisfaction, a sense of achievement, a social life, not to mention earning a salary. However sometimes we find that things aren’t so smooth or that we hit a crossroads in our career or professional life.
- Is it what you do that doesn’t bring satisfaction anymore?
- Is a perspective of changing careers even more terrifying than ‘persevering and resenting’?
- Or perhaps you don’t feel valued and getting recognition for your work?
- Are you worried that you are not as good as your colleagues and you will get ‘found out’?
- Are you happy with what you do but the environment is not conducive to being at your best? Are you being bullied?
- Are you dreading Mondays and keep dreaming of “more ME time”?
Work takes about 80% of our ‘awake’ time in adult life.
If such a large part of your life causes stress, anxiety, feeling inadequate, the other part will not stay okay for long.
Sooner or later the effects will start spilling on the other areas – your spare time, family life. You may feel it when you are not awake, or even worse, you may find your sleep time taken away by ‘work issue’.
Therapy with Anna will give you an opportunity to discuss your worries in a confidential setting, with a person who has experience of working in a highly stressful and demanding environment.
