Certificate of Professional Development in Workplace Counselling

How can we help our people identify issues, difficulties and problems caused by thoughts, feelings and emotions? How can we motivate and encourages them to respond and make progress towards resolution? A little bit of stress does provide workers with the motivation to increase productivity and efficiency but too much stress can be counterproductive. Psychological therapy can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve mental health, and increase job satisfaction and commitment. Counselling provides an effective method of understanding the pressure caused by occupational stress and offers a supportive remedy.
