Counselling for Occupational Stress and Burnout

You may be feeling overwhelmed with your finances, under-appreciated, overworked or unmotivated. Perhaps you feel like nothing you do matters or that you're trapped in your current circumstances. These feelings often cause a person to feel stressed. Chronic stress can lead to anxiety and depression, as well as physical symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, muscle tension and fatigue. If it continues for an extended time, stress can turn to burn out, which is a state of exhaustion that is harder to recover from. That's why it's important to take time out to assess your own mental health, so that you can prevent these issues from interfering with your life.

What is the Difference Between Stress and Burnout?

Stress
Stress is a normal response to something that feels dangerous or problematic. Money, work, family, and your health can all contribute to increased stress. But, it's not always a bad thing and can actually help you perform better under pressure. However, if you're constantly feeling stressed out, it can take a toll on your mental and physical health.
Burnout
Burnout, on the other hand, is more serious. It occurs when you have been exposed to long periods of stress that have led to feelings of exhaustion, cynicism, hopelessness and detachment. Burnout often takes more time to recover from.

Workplace Issues

Workplace issues are a common problem for employees at all levels, and they can lead to significant stress, anxiety, and depression. Counselling for workplace issues helps to identify the underlying cause, and then works with you to correct it. It is also important in helping you improve your self-confidence and self-esteem so that you can deal with these difficult situations more effectively in the future.

Long Hours

Working for long hours leads to poor work life balance and not enough time to yourself which is the most common cause of burnout.

Heavy Workload

Feeling overwhelmed daily with the amount of work often can have you feeling that your work so hard and never get anywhere which causes stress.

Poor Relationships

Having bad relationships with coworkers and supervisors makes it very stressful to go to work due to the anxiety associated with conflict.

Tight Deadlines

Working within tight deadlines contributes to increased stress due to fears that if the deadlines are missed, major consequences will follow.

Job Insecurity

Fearing that your job is not secure and can be lost at any moment causes significant stress and financial worries that make it difficult to work.

Boring Work

Feeling under-stimulated and bored at work can have a negative impact on our mental health and make going to work feel almost torturous.

Lack of Autonomy

Most people want to be able to make decisions that allow them to show their skills, but a lack of autonomy often causes stress and negatively impacts self esteem.

Bad Management

Having a bad or abusive manager can have a significant impact on your self esteem and happiness which can make going to work very stressful.

How Can Counselling Help?

Counselling for stress and burnout can help you deal with the pressure of your job and regain control over your thoughts so that they don't take over your whole life. Also, you will develop tools and strategies that can be used in times when things get stressful.

Other Common Stressors

Stress can be caused by anything in life that feels overwhelming including financial issues, major life changes, family disputes, health scares and much more. Stress is a part of life for most people, but it is possible to manage your stress levels and reduce their impact on you. Counselling can help you to understand what causes your stress and how to manage it effectively. It will also help you identify your strengths and skills so that you know how to cope with the stressors in your life.
