Personal Stress

High-stress levels can be caused by a variety of life situations including work pressure, difficult relationships, financial difficulties, a loss, or bereavement. Long-term exposure to stress can lead to serious physical, as well as mental health problems. Inability to sleep, increased alcohol intake, and anger outbursts are all early symptoms that can alienate the stressed person from those around them and add to the problem. When stress, and your reaction to it, are dominating your life and there is no chance to switch off, it is time to seek help.

Nightingale Counsellors work with you to identify your particular triggers, find resources to deal with stressful events and overwhelming feelings, and develop a strategy to help you get your life back in perspective. The time is now, we need to slow you down to a pace where you can start to remember how to consider yourself and not just in the here and now but for your future self. Personal development will also feature in the work we do with you.

Testimonial

Finding Nightingale Counselling Services came during a point of utter despair and panic – I was at rock bottom and at a loss as to how to cope with the painful emotions and situations I was experiencing in life. After a particularly traumatic time, Florence referred me to Liz, who, from my first session and despite my emotional state, immediately allowed me to feel safe and welcome. Each session is met with warmth and genuine kindness and interest in my wellbeing. I have never felt judged or ashamed for how I feel as she approaches my issues in a gentle and caring manner. Even though there are difficult topics to discuss I always leave feeling soothed and calmer and the sessions usually end with laughter about something witty and encouraging. Working with Liz has had a massively positive impact on my life as she guides me on how to take care of myself with compassion and love and I genuinely enjoy and look forward to each session we have.

Stress Counselling

Professional Stress

Company Directors, Chief Executives, and other high-powered business people are often almost paralysed by stress. Increased workload, extremely long work hours, and intense pressure to perform at peak levels, along with excessive travel and too much time away from family, contribute to stress levels. Talking about your business, how it impacts you personally and emotionally, can help you get back on track and release your potential for personal and professional growth.

Work-Related Stress

Workplace stress is a serious employment issue. It can be a cause of despair and can limit us from realising our full potential. Relationships at work, organisational set-ups, change, and work patterns can all play a part. If we need to please others or work in a high pressured environment, we may be susceptible to stress, and unable to protect ourselves in the face of deadlines and targets. If you constantly dread work it may be useful to seek help from a Nightingale Counsellor. Talking about your challenges, learning assertiveness skills, how to prioritise and delegate, and how to manage time, are all useful for managing work-related stress, helping towards a more fulfilling career.

Difficult Relationships in the Workplace

Dealing with difficult people can contribute to your stress levels. Employees who frustrate you and clients who abuse you are factors we face in our working life. Learning how to deal with difficult people can counteract the stress these situations cause. How you communicate with difficult people is the key to changing their behaviour towards you.

Ways in which stress manifests itself:

Anger
Depression
Chronic fatigue
Lack of sleep
Health issues
Explosive outbursts
Bad eating habits
Catastrophic thinking
Obsessing
Controlling
Addiction
Fear of failure
Burnout
