- STRESS MANAGEMENT COUNSELLING
Direct and indirect stress symptoms include mental, emotional, behavioral and physical signs. Tiredness, palpitations, feeling tense, confusion, irritability, having no enthusiasm, feeling unable to face people, unable to unwind, drinking more alcohol, bursting into tears, losing interest in sex, feeling shaky, becoming particularly indecisive…the list is long and often contradictory.
Taking no action when something seems not quite as it should be can lead into a negative spiral of very serious long term illness. Addressing workplace unhappiness in the early stages can really help.
Ankortherapy provides quality – a range of skills applied over 30+ years including within a city counselling service specialising in occupational health, numerous GP referrals, and a significant body of work for staff welfare. The skills include listening in a particular focussed way that has developed from working at the extreme end of mental ill health, to dealing with seemingly light issues that have affected people’s lives in a way that has maybe pulled the carpet from under them and made the future seem bleak. Bullying and over responsibility are frequently presented.
Deep relaxation techniques help in a way that surprises people who have never considered such things before or have maybe even dismissed it. It can greatly improve sleep, dispel panic attacks, begin to develop ‘calm’ feelings as opposed to feeling uptight…..there are many applications.
Creative approaches can be very helpful for a host of presenting problems including but not limited to trauma, and with group work while working with organisational dynamics provides insight into issues and can enable ways forward out of ‘stuck’ situations. Some organisations will be familiar with ”mind maps”. Art psychotherapy takes thinking ‘outside the box’ that bit further since it taps into unconscious, underdeveloped aspects of the person that may be dismissed, unacknowledged or ignored.
It is precisely that mix that enables a way in to help the individual and allows for difference in people and a range of ways to reach people in order that they may express themselves.
“It is of enormous benefit to companies to have contented, happier staff who feel appreciated for the work they do and who feel they are doing a worthwhile job. Output is likely to be greater and absence is likely to reduce.” (Local manager, statutory sector)
