Work Related Issues

We all need some pressure in our lives as it makes our work satisfying and helps us to meet deadlines. But it's all about striking the right balance. Too much pressure without having the chance to recover causes stress, which can be damaging to our health.

Work-related stress can cause both physical and emotional health problems. It can cause you to be more prone to physical symptoms such as:

  • Headaches

  • Muscular tension

  • Backache and/or neck ache

  • Tiredness and sleep problems

  • Digestive problems

  • Raised heart rate

  • Skin rashes

  • Sweating

  • Blurred vision


You may also be prone to psychological symptoms such as:


  • Lower sex drive (libido)

  • Feeling that you can't cope

  • Irritability and mood swings

  • Disturbed eating patterns

  • Difficulties with concentrating

  • Feeling less motivated



Workplace stress is different for everyone.  What is stressful for one person may not be stressful for another. It can depend on your personality type and how you have learned to respond to pressure.

How do you know if you have work-related stress?

  • Often rushing about, trying to be in too many places at once

  • Miss breaks and take work home with you

  • Not enough time for exercise, relaxation or spending time with your friends and family

What are the differences between stress and burnout?


Whilst it is easier to recognise being under a lot of stress, it is harder to notice or acknowledge burnout. Feelings of hopelessness, cynicism and detachment from others, are particular symptoms of burnout.

Everyone has arguments and everyone disagrees with their partners, family members and others close to them from time to time. We all do things at times which cause unhappiness to those we care about and of course we regret. When this begins to form a consistent pattern, then it may be an indication of domestic violence.


Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse, psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional between adults who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality, is very often considered domestic abuse. read more ...

Stress anxiety and depression picture

Diagnosable depressive illnesses usually require medical investigation and it is always advisable in the first instance to talk with your GP. Many people understand the value of counselling support when they are feeling depressed, stressed and anxious. Feelings of depression usually, but not always, stem from a build up of stress and anxiety.


Stress and anxiety by and large, involves too much: too many pressures that demand too much of you physically and psychologically. Stressed people can still imagine though, that if they can just get everything under control, they'll feel better. Stress can develop as a response to any situation or thought that upsets you. read more ...
