Psychotherapy and stress at the workplace

When it comes to dealing with stress in the workplace, we usually think of training techniques or relaxation methods. They are valid of course and more often than not there is a significant effect, but when short term stress-relievers are not enough, what then?

Psychoanalytic therapy helps the client learn about his/her deeper thoughts that make the usual stress unbearable. They might be related to fear of failure, the reluctance to recognize an authority, or quite the opposite – too much obedience. Often, conflicts at work are just a reflection of the inability to adapt to the environment or the desire to be elsewhere.

My experience as a corporative employee helps me understand the dynamics of the workplace and identify the problems that can be solved with simple self-help techniques, while distinguishing them from those that need to be addressed in detail due to their deep, personal and subjective nature.
