Birmingham Workaholism Therapy
Do you spend as much time with your family as you would like? Can you remember the last time you enjoyed something outside of work? Do you find it difficult to focus on even a conversation that is not about work? Depending on how you answered these questions, you may be suffering workaholism. This involves an obsessive preoccupation with work and career, to the detriment of all other things in life, including relationships and health. Many people that are suffering from workaholism also experience physical symptoms such as headaches, high blood pressure, and poor nutrition and overall health. Severe workaholics can end up losing their marriage and family because of their inability to disconnect from work, for even a short time.
While it is admirable to be dedicated to your career, like many things in life, having an unhealthy focus on this can lead to a great deal of trouble in other areas. If you are looking for help for a loved one that may be a workaholic, you have probably been suffering in silence for quite some time. Your spouse or partner is probably highly esteemed at work, and possibly admired for their success in their career. But we understand that being the person left behind at home is very difficult. We can help you and your partner work through these issues, and help set your spouse or partner free from workaholism.
