Danny has been feeling extremely stressed at work. He’s the current victim of his boss’s vitriol and anger. No matter how hard Danny works, his boss just isn’t satisfied.
Needless to say, Danny is unhappy in his current work environment. He wants to be treated with respect and his work to be valued. But searching for a new job sounds about as stressful as his current work environment. Danny is at a loss for what to do.
Like many others, Danny can benefit from talking to a counselor or coach. A mental health professional can help him in a few different ways.
- They can help him with stress management.
- They can offer unbiased guidance and insight into his current situation.
- They can help him decide how he should move forward.
- And if he does decide to look for a new job, they can offer career counseling/coaching.
Career stress is one of the many challenges that are prevalent in society today. We are all fighting our own battles, whether it’s…
- Career stress or personal stress
- A mental illness like depression, anxiety, or PTSD
- Discord in our relationships
- Dissatisfaction with life
- Or something else entirely
One thing, though, remains true for these varying life challenges: They can be better managed with a little help. If you’re looking for mental health help, guidance, or support, know that the psychiatrists, psychotherapists, child therapists, family therapists, social workers, and professional counselors at Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Jackson are here to offer just that.
Should I Talk to a Counselor?
There’s a misconception that counseling or therapy is a last resort; that only those with severe mental illnesses go to counseling. In reality, therapy and counseling services are a life-changing resource that is available to everyone and at any time. If you have determined a need for mental health help, you will be welcomed with open arms.
That said, there are common reasons why people decide to begin counseling. For example:
- They’re feeling overwhelmed by stress (like Danny in our example above)
- They’ve developed symptoms of a mental health condition
- They’re looking for relationship help
- They’ve lost a loved one and need extra support
- They’re healing from a traumatic experience
- They’re looking for some direction in their life
If any of the above are true for you, it might be a good idea to talk to a counselor, psychiatrist, therapist, clinical psychologist, life coach, or another mental health professional. The team at Thriveworks Counseling & Child Therapy Jackson would be honored to help you with the above as well as other mental health challenges and life issues.
