Coping with change

Coping with change 

Counselling and Courses in Coping with Change at Work …and in Life

Organisational change can take a heavy toll on the individual employee caught up in the process.   New technologies, new markets, mergers and restructurings all play havoc with personal stress levels.  Unacknowledged emotions can break out as anger and counter-productive behaviour in the working environment.

Employees need to feel that they have control over their own lives.  Insecurity at work, an absence of support in their job role, poor working conditions, conflict, harassment and bullying are all reasons for feeling that life is treating them unfairly.  This can have far-reaching consequences not only for the organisation, but also for the individual.  The ‘executive burn-out’ is not a figure from fiction.  Numbers of managers with severe and long-term emotional issues arising from work pressure have increased rapidly over recent years.  Although self-imposed, this pressure to succeed has frequently been assessed according to criteria set not by themselves but according to an organisational stereotype to which they aspire.  It is important to act early to help employees understand the way in which their emotions affect the decisions that they make and to ensure that their personal and work life are in harmony.

We provide individual counselling for those who are feeling the pressure of reorganisation and both individual and group sessions for those who may be about to face major change through redundancy or retirement.  People will be guided to develop their personal resources and strategies to cope with the effects of these changes on their own lives.

Our NLP Masters will cut through the emotional ‘noise’ to the heart of the issues that trouble the client.  Using advanced energy psychology techniques, they will help the client to acknowledge their feelings in a safe and professionally controlled environment, so that they can better understand and work through their responses to the pressures around them.
