Work-related stress can be challenging to deal with, and the impact can be pretty severe for you. I remember the saying many years ago ‘don’t bring your home problems into work’. The challenge, though, is working out whether it’s a work issue or a home issue that you are struggling with because work-related stress is most likely to have an effect at home. This confusion can create all sorts of doubt in your mind. It can have an impact on your self-esteem and on your confidence. It can lead to feelings of tiredness, being stressed out or emotional. You might feel indecisive, and you begin to question all areas of your life, wondering whether you’re in the right job, or even the right relationship.
Some of the physical results can be poor sleep, poor eating habits, issues with anger, feelings of isolation, increase drinking, maybe you have started gambling or are using recreational drugs to cope with your feelings and thoughts.
We all know how important it is to talk about our feelings. But do you ever get the feeling that when you are talking to someone, they are not really listening, or they have lost interest? They compare you to others telling you that things will get better in time or they talk about themselves. But for you, the thought of feeling the way you do is really beginning to bother you, and you want something to change. As a counsellor, my role is to listen, I am interested in your story, I listen to understand you helping you feel better. By choosing to speak to a counsellor early, you might stop things getting worse.
‘Thank you so much for your help and for enabling me to move on so well and for seeing things much clearer. I really appreciate it.’
“Our sessions together have been very helpful and beneficial. Deeply relaxing and very much worth while. Giving me the push in the right direction, so thank you very much.”
“Having suffered with strong anxiety over a long period of time, I had tried many things to help me get it under control. In the end, hypnotherapy was the one thing I had never tried and I was a little apprehensive at the thought of being hypnotised after some of the things I had seen on TV. However, Vicky helped to put my mind at ease and, after my first session, I quickly learned it was not what I expected. Hypnotherapy is actually very relaxing and Vicky worked with me to identify issues and develop a Hypnotherapy “script” or plan very personal to me. I began to notice a difference in my anxiety levels almost straight away. Hypnotherapy has been very successful for me. I am much more relaxed and my thoughts have more clarity and direction. I feel stronger and more focused than ever now.
Vicky absolutely raises the bar and sets the standard for such therapies too. She is a genuinely caring person and is truly gifted at what she does so it has been very easy for me to connect with her. The hypnotherapy sessions are done in a very calming, relaxed setting-far from the typical, clinical office-type surroundings that other therapists use. The location certainly adds a more personal experience, which I believe has also contributed to the success of my hypnotherapy sessions.”
“You’ve been absolutely incredible in the sessions I have had so far, and it has helped me a lot.”
“Vicky I can’t thank you enough for all your support which has given me the courage and strength to be the person I used to be and want to be once again. Being able to sit with you and unload the thoughts that have been holding me back for years has released me and set me free to enjoy life again Thank you !!!!”
