Managing Stress at Work with TherapyPatient & Families
A lot of us are in jobs where there is limited choice and allowance for autonomy. Do you feel overwhelmed or anxious when you have to work with certain people? Have you been identified as being “too nice” or the “people pleaser”? Do you feel manipulated or taken advantage of? How do handle your frustration about differences in work ethic?
Utilizing the Power of Therapy for Work Related Stress
There is a lot that we can’t control at our job. Therapy can help you assess what you can control- your communication skills, your ability to set healthy boundaries, identification of triggers, relaxation techniques, and coping skills for how you manage stress. If you’re struggling in any of these areas, therapy can be an outlet to gain insight and learn ways to cope. A lot of us bring work home and redirect our feelings of anxiety, anger or frustration onto our families or friends. Some of us internalize our stress and feel physical symptoms like tightness in our chest or stomach aches. A therapist or psychologist can support you in understanding how stress is impacting your life.
