Stress often wears a disguise. High stress levels can be caused by a variety of life situations including work pressure, difficult relationships, financial difficulties, a loss or bereavement or addiction.
Long term exposure to stress can lead to serious physical, as well as mental, health problems. Inability to sleep, increased alcohol or drug intake and anger outbursts are all early symptoms which can alienate the stressed person from those around them and add to the problem. When stress and your reaction to it are dominating your life and there is no chance to switch off, it is time for assistance.
Nightingale will work with you to identify your particular triggers, find resources to deal with stressful events and overwhelming feelings and develop self-confidence which enables you to face the challenges ahead. Nightingale can offer you an empathic support system in a confidential non judgemental environment to enable you to gain relief so you can get on with your life.
Company Directors, Chief Executives and other high-powered 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, contribute to stress levels. Talking about your business, how it impacts you personally and emotionally can help you get back on track and release your potential for personal and professional growth.
Workplace stress is a serious employment issue. It can be a cause of despair and can limit us from realising our full potential. Relationships at work, organisational set-ups,change and work patterns can all play a part. If we need to please others or to be perfect we may be susceptible to stress, and unable to protect ourselves in the face of deadlines. Talking about your challenges, learning assertiveness skills, how to prioritise and delegate and how to manage time are all useful for managing work-related stress, helping towards a more fulfilling career.
Dealing with difficult people can 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. You cannot change anyone all you can do is change your reaction to them.
We aim to ensure that every client feels safe in the knowledge that they have found a professional organisation that understands the challenges and concerns they face when they decide to seek assistance. When you contact Nightingale we will respond immediately to all enquiries and can guarantee an appointment within 48 hours. Contact us on 0141 353 9373, Email us or complete our online Enquiry Form.
"I was in a state of emotional turmoil, my relationships were at rock bottom and I could not get through my work – none of which I understood. Was I having a mid-life crisis? In sheer desperation I contacted Nightingale to see if counselling might help. Florence provided a secure environment, in which she carefully led me along a path of self-discovery, empowering me to understand the origin of and influences on my own character, behaviours and emotions. With Florence’s continued guidance I started to see more clearly the direct causes of the emotional turmoil, and how this was affecting all areas of my life. Knowledge really is power! This clarity provided a solid foundation for the next stage of identifying, assessing and planning how I might change my life to restore emotional balance and happiness."
