In this day and age a lot is being asked of employees, HR and management: to perform well, be a good colleague, have things run smoothly at home, excel and be able to lead.
Pushing yourself too hard, keep on going, ignoring signals from your body and the little voice in your head, can lead to health problems. A little stress now and then is quite healthy, but long-term stress and other complaints, such as anxiousness and sleepless nights, can lead to failure and serious health consequences.
Individual guidance through coaching gives you the opportunity to regain control and balance. During guidance, I work with mindfulness skills to reduce stress, look at events and difficult situations from the past that you have dealt with in a certain way (coping) and together we investigate what can help you now, so that you can move forward or take a (temporary) brake.
The sessions are short-term (of, in relatie tot de tijd van één sessie: “short”) and consist of an intake and five sessions.
- Losing control
- Feeling tormented, anxiety and fear
- Sadness, gloominess and downcast
- Brooding and sleeplessness
- Feelings of guilt and anger about overeating, watching Netflix
- Concentration problems
- Feeling let down by yourself
- Dealing with difficult colleagues and/or supervisor
- Dissatisfaction from work or life
As a counsellor my main focus is on recovery in the event of frequent overload and imminent burnout or breakdown. It is my experience that by intervening on time with the use of counselling, dropout due to work-related complaints is prevented or limited. In addition to work-related complaints, dealing with colleagues, work team and manager, attention is also paid to stress relief, competences, work/private balance and other problems at work or home. read more >
A well-functioning team (think of a team where there are no irritations, quarrels or differences of opinion), sounds ideal. But the occasional argument or disagreement has a function: it promotes creativity and puts people back on their toes. However, when irritations and quarrels get the upper hand, the team can no longer work together constructively and these tensions can even lead to dropout. In this situation, involving a third independent would be an excellent intervention to use. read more >
