How Counseling Has Helped at Work

Margie C. (Atlanta, GA) - Nurse: Learned skills to manage anxiety, stress, and trauma that resulted from her job in a busy Emergency Room.  Prior to receiving help, she was contemplating leaving the nursing profession.  

Elliot S. (Dallas, TX) - Accounting:  Referred to counseling due to increasing anger and frustration with colleagues at work.  Elliot learned what triggers him and strategies to manage anger and frustration.  Prior to receiving help, he was about to lose his job due to consistent outbursts.  

Emily T. (Melbourne, FL) -  Unemployed: Emily was laid off of her job due to budget issues.  She had been job searching for about nine (9) months whenever she started seeing me for counseling.  Through counseling, it was discovered that Emily suffered anxiety and fear of failure that led to avoidance; impacting her ability to interview for jobs.  After receiving help, Emily was able to attend interviews and receive job offers.  

David E. (Columbia, SC) - Lawyer: David had a sudden onset of severe social anxiety due to an issue that occurred in a very public setting at work.  He had difficulty doing the daily tasks of his job and avoided social situations to the point where it was impacting his reputation.  After counseling, David was able to learn skills to manage his anxiety and eventually able to return to social situations.  

Elaine Q (Rock Hill, SC) - Secretary: Elaine was dealing with a serious case of workplace bullying and sexual harassment.  Even though she had reported the issue to HR, it was still not resolved and she even dealt with some retaliation.  Elaine began to blame herself and it led to bouts of depression and anxiety.  She consistently called into work and was reprimanded.  She couldn't leave the position because she had a family to support.  Through Counseling, Elaine was able to learn skills to be appropriately assertive and to take back control of her environment.  

Tracy S. (Macon, GA): - Hospitality:  Tracy went to counseling as the result of feelings of anger and frustration after being turned down for a promotion for a colleague whom she believed was less qualified.  She was able to identify that she lacks assertiveness as the ability to promote herself.  After counseling, Tracy learned how to assert herself in a variety of situations and overcome the issues of anger and frustration, making her more productive at her job.  

Roger A. (Valdosta, GA) - Manager: Roger received counseling due to an increasing lack of motivation to complete his job responsibilities.  He was a recently promoted manager who was having considerable difficulty supervising employees that were once his peers.  This led to depression and Roger was beginning to believe that he was not capable of doing the job.  Through counseling, Roger was able to identify his values, develop the confidence to manage employee push back, and was able to be successful in his new role as a manager.

Delaying getting help will only cause you more pain.   In my experience, the longer the delay, the worse the problem gets.  Unfortunately, problems usually don't solve themselves and if the problems you're having are ongoing, regardless of the help you have gotten from work, family, and friends, they are likely to continue.  Why Let This Impact You Even Longer?  Help Is Here, Get Started Now...
