When is too much too much?

Overworked, Overwhelmed, Overloaded Too much work to complete on and too little time to do it in can lead to stress, anxiety, lack of good quality sleep and fatigue I see quite a number of individuals in senior positions that are literally loaded up to the gills beyond where their capacity to operate is sufficient What reminded me of this is that just last week I had a very senior person of a university attend my private clinic for help. It’s easy to find yourself in a position where you are good at what you do and you find it difficult to say no when you are asked to take on more workload/another project etc Part of the difficulty in saying no is that you may like to be liked. You also may

Are you a worrier?

What a worry……..My mum, bless her once said to me when I was in my previous life in the corporate world that “worrying never changes anything”. It went over my head at the time. I was a worrier by nature and in fairness probably got that trait from my mum who could worry for England I don’t worry now as I taught myself how not to. Something I teach to the greater majority of my private clients and on my workshops with my corporate clients. We are never taught how not to worry. In fairness we are never taught how to handle our mental health when we are exposed to the real world. Academic education does not prepare you for the real world I experienced a great example of this last year when I w

Are you unconsciously stressing?

I took a call from a man relating to me how he had been feeling anxious over the last few weeks. No anxiety or panic attacks just feeling out of sorts and unsafe We arranged to get together where he explained that he was a board director of a small company and had previously held positions as a main board director of very large businesses in the past He was intelligent, articulate, confident and capable and couldn’t understand why he had begun to feel this way.

Stress is NOT a weakness

With mental health awareness week upon us it’s an opportunity for us to raise our awareness of how critical our mental health can be to ourselves as individuals and the impact it can have on business performance According to the Mental Health Foundation research has shown that 16 million people experience a mental health problem each year The three main areas I tend to see and address are stress, anxiety and depression. The symptomatic knock on effect of these conditions can lead to many and varied different debilitating states for the individual.
