Counseling services can help employees identify and understand what is causing personal distress in their lives, may it be problematic situations, feelings, or habits. The goal of counseling is to eventually improve a person’s sense of well-being, alleviate feelings of distress, and resolve crises.
Counseling can help people address a wide range of problems such as the following:
- Work issues
- Career issues
- Self-esteem and self-confidence
- Mid-life crisis
- Anger management
- Relationship problems
- Stress at workplace
- Family problems
- Workplace Bullying
Also called talk therapy, Psychotherapy is an effective tool in helping employees with emotional difficulties and mental illnesses. It can help control or eliminate symptoms so that a team member can better manage difficult situations, create healthier relationships, and be able to drive one’s life in the direction that will give the utmost personal fulfillment.
Psychotherapy can be done in a few sessions (short-term) if dealing with immediate issues, or long-term for more complex and long-lasting issues.
Your team can benefit from psychotherapy if they experience the following:
- feels that your situation will never improve, even though you have been receiving help from friends and family
- has experienced abuse
- has a mental health condition such as PTSD
- has overwhelming feelings of sadness or helplessness
- feels anxious most of the time
- has difficulty focusing on work or studies; or facing everyday challenges
- is using drugs or alcohol that is deemed excessive
- is at risk of harming themselves or others
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a goal-oriented treatment that takes a practical and hands-on approach to problem-solving. It is helpful in addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, and OCD, to name a few. Its primary goal is to change patterns of thinking and behavior that are behind a person’s difficulties.
A combination of cognitive therapy and behavioural therapy, CBT can give you an understanding of how your thinking and behavior affect your current situation, and help you develop new and more adaptive thinking and behavioral patterns.
CBT has been shown to be effective in dealing with a vast range of mental health issues including:
- Anxiety at the workplace
- Panic Attacks
- Stress at home or work
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Anger management
- Social Anxiety
- Self Esteem
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy differs from any other types of psychotherapy as sessions have a structure, rather than a person talking freely about anything that comes to mind. It employs a range of different exercises, behavioural experiments, and a series of exploratory questions.
