Our services have helped employees to manage work-related stressWork stress is the single most common source of stress in the developed world. The introduction of high-speed information technology, rising expectations and global competitiveness, loss of job security and reducing staff levels has increased work-related stress in recent years. In Britain, job stress is estimated to account for the loss of approximately 13 million working days per year. Stress is believed to trigger 70% of visits (40,000 per month) to doctors, and 85% of serious illnesses. Another study suggested that 60% of absences from work are caused by stress-related disorders. It is important to identify the source of stress in your job. Some people do not know exactly what this is and just feel demoralised or fed up. Our psychologists are experts in identifying the causes of work-related stress and the emotional, behavioural and physical symptoms of stress. They will help you to develop more productive coping strategies to alleviate work-related stress, depressionThe most prominent feature of depression is a sad or low mood. Other possible signs may include: lethargy, trouble with sleep, change in appetite, difficulty concentrating and making decisions, loss of interest, and pessimistic thoughts. A depressive experience can be triggered by a series of difficult life events or a longstanding condition. Depression can range from mild mood fluctuations and episodes of low mood to severe clinical depression which can often have more marked physical symptoms. Depression is not easy to 'snap out of' but it is a treatable condition, and there are ways to free yourself from it with the help of psychological therapy., anxietyAnxiety is a very common and, sometimes, healthy reaction when we sense a threat or find ourselves in a worrying situation. Anxiety can become a problem when it interferes with our performance or everyday lives. We can start to feel an overwhelming sense of uneasiness, either generally, or in relation to a specific situation. At these times we may experience physical feelings of anxiety including an increased heart rate, difficulty breathing, shakes, and dizziness, tightness in the chest, nausea, muscular pain, and headaches. Anxiety is often also associated with worrying thoughts, difficulties in sleeping and concentration, and a loss of self-confidence. Psychological therapy can teach new ways to manage and reduce anxiety. and other psychological problems that, without our help, may have impinged on their work performance. Thanks to our expertise, organisations find that work-related stress and other psychological problems are 'nipped in the bud' before they escalate into longer term problems for both the employee and the employer.
