Work & Career Issues

For many of us, working takes up the majority of our week. And even if we are not working, we may spend a lot of time thinking about working. We can spend time for example in thinking the type of career we want, how to monetise a hobby, or how to start a new role.

We often gain a sense of esteem from our work, be it the company we work for, how much we earn, or the satisfaction we derive from the role itself. Working can provide us with a sense of motivation, meaning, and achievement, yet many struggle to find this in their current working environment.

Issues Counselling and Psychotherapy Can Help With:

  • Not knowing what type of career you want
  • Having a profession but not knowing how to make money out of it
  • Difficulty achieving a work/life balance
  • Stress management
  • Overworking
  • Repeated disputes or other issues with colleagues and employers
  • Not feeling as if you are being given the credit or recognition you want
  • Wanting your work to be more meaningful
  • Redundancy
  • Wanting to change career later on in life


Counselling and Psychotherapy will provide you with the space, time, and right environment to explore and understand what it is you need in order to feel motivated at work and support you to start making positive changes.

You can explore interests that might lead to a career change. Perhaps you have no idea what you might enjoy in which case counselling will encourage you to try out different activities in order to discover what you like. Whilst you may not be able to give up your day job immediately you will end up with a better idea of how you continue along the path to making a career change.

For those of you who have identified a pattern in your working relations, for example getting into conflict with colleagues or employers, we will explore these relational patterns to find ways to change them into a more healthy dynamic.

Perhaps you have been made redundant after a long period working for the same company. Being faced with having to find new employment, especially if you are nearer to retirement age, can feel very daunting and scary. This may also be the case if you have been unemployed for a long period of time. You may doubt that you are employable. You might disregard alternative career options, monetising a hobby or returning to study for fear of getting it wrong and feeling like you have failed.

In all these instances, Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you to explore unhelpful thinking patterns that get in the way and allow you to see greater possibilities for your future.
