Workplace issues are sometimes difficult to leave at work and could cause distress in other areas of life. If someone is having a problem with their performance at their job, a coworker or a boss, or are generally unsatisfied in their career, counseling can help.
Available Treatment Options
Career counselors work specifically on assessing and matching people with interests and job fields that align with their strengths and experiences.
If someone is dealing with job stress, they may seek counseling to work on stress management techniques.
Counseling interventions include cognitive techniques, where therapists help the person examine their unhelpful thought patterns related to the workplace. They also include reflective techniques, such as examining a person’s self-image and past to understand the relation of those experiences to their current functioning, or mindfulness techniques like meditation, journaling, and breathing tactics that work to reduce stress.
