The role of Managing Director or Senior Manager can be extremely stressful and isolating. At times you may feel it would be useful to have someone out with the organisation or family to talk to confidentially about your personal challenges and the challenges within your organisation.
Company Directors, Chief Executives, managers and other high positioned 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. Sometimes it is difficult relationships or financial difficulties causing stress.
Long term exposure to stress can lead to serious physical, as well as mental, health problems. Inability to sleep, depression, addictions, increased alcohol intake and angry outbursts are all early symptoms which can alienate the stressed person from those around them and add to the problem.
Dealing with difficult people can also 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.
When stress and your reaction to it is dominating and affecting your life and there is no chance to switch off, it is time to seek help. Nightingale stress counsellors offer a safe place away from the workplace where you can explore and express your feelings and frustrations without restriction or judgement with someone who is empathic, non judgemental and congruent.

Identifying your personal stress triggers, finding the resources to deal with stressful events and building self-confidence will help you to face the challenges ahead.

"I initially engaged Nightingales on a management development basis but quickly discovered that I needed to deal with personal life management which was undermining my performance. This was a time of real crisis and I was already a well developed individual. Florence meets you at your point of need and is extremely adept at getting to the route of issues and prioritising the management of these matters. She is very approachable, effective and has knowledge and skill that can deal with the spectrum of both work and personal performance. She does all of this in a non threatening, non pretentious and often at times lively, humorous manner. During my time with Nightingales I moved from a position of perceived weakness to one where I was very powerful and making life changing decisions. During this period I managed a high pressure role with one of the most successful financial services organisations in the world, completed a Masters degree, relocated and made lifestyle changes that were long overdue. More than anything I have developed more skills and trust my instinct which is supporting my entire lifestyle."
