Most of us spend more time at work than at home, therefore the workplace should be an environment where we feel safe and comfortable. However, because work is where a bunch of different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews gather around, things don’t always go smoothly. In fact, workplace bullying is on the rise and though statistics vary, some studies reveal that nearly half of all American workers have been affected by this problem, either as a target or as a witness to abusive behavior against a co-worker.
- Examples of common workplace issues include:
- Poor job fit
- Mental anguish
- Sexual or verbal harassment
- Low motivation and job dissatisfaction
How a Therapist Can Help
Therapy for work and career issues can help a person develop a better understanding of their wants and needs as well as approach alternative ways to handle tension while on the clock. Therapy is a neutral setting where patients can discuss their fears, worries, or stressors, and regain control of their happiness.
Psychotherapy tends to work well when addressing workplace issues because talk therapy such as this can effectively treat depression and anxiety that can stem from these conflicts. A mental health professional can also teach coping skills that will help a person manage work-related stress.
Clinical Supervision for Registered Mental Health Counselor Interns
Clinical supervision is emerging as the most critical point in developing a career within the mental health field. Counselors acquire hands-on knowledge and skills for the mental health profession, providing a bridge between the classroom and practice. Supervision is necessary to improve client care, develop professionalism, and impart and maintain ethical standards in the field. In recent years, clinical supervision has become the cornerstone of quality improvement and assurance.
As your supervisor I seek to provide support, encouragement, and education while addressing an array of psychological, interpersonal, emotional, and spiritual issues of clients. Ultimately, effective clinical supervision ensures that clients are competently served. Supervision ensures that counselors continue to increase their skills, which in turn increases treatment effectiveness, client retention, and staff satisfaction.
Although I have a variety of clinical experiences, I have strong roots in crisis intervention and stabilization of emerging issues. I am happy to provide a free initial meeting to see if we are a match for the supervision experience.
