Bullying - Workplace Life Stress Reduction (LSR)

Bullying - Workplace

Bullying in the workplace can cause social, psychological and physical injuries to the victims, the bystanders and the respective families.  While many people seek out legal help for workplace bullying, the court can't heal emotional scars.

Bullies prey on dysfunctional corporate systems to exert their perceived power over the victims. They can physically or emotionally harm the victim, causing several injuries and psychological trauma that ranges from PTSD to personality changes, social issues, panic attacks, anxiety disorders and depression. In some cases, physical symptoms can also be the result of workplace bullying.

It is important to seek help as soon as bullying starts, to help you manage the effects of workplace bullying effectively. An experienced therapist will help you find strategies to block the bullying attempts and to assess your legal options and discuss the best ways to handle work-related issues.

A psychologist with workplace bullying therapy experience will also be the best person to speak to if you have been seriously injured as a result of workplace bullying. In some cases the treatment can be ongoing, depending on the severity of the emotional effects of the bullying. Therapy will help you recover from the emotional impact of the bullying and the ongoing legal and medical issues.

Therapists that have training in workplace bullying use a range of therapies, depending on the needs and symptoms of their individual clients. Treatment might include EMDR (rapid eye movement therapy) and cognitive behavioural therapy. Working with a therapist you like and trust will help you find better coping strategies and restore your self-esteem.

If you are looking for a counsellor or psychologist who offers therapy or counselling to address your workplace bullying issues you may want to search the directory to find a professional whose approach will suit you best.

Life Stress Reduction (LSR), Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Life Stress Reduction (LSR) therapy is an effective, yet simple method that helps eliminate unwanted emotions and reduce stress. It has the potential to rapidly relief emotions, such as anger, anxiety, fear and depression.

A Life Stress Reduction therapist will deliver the sessions and offer exercises and practical techniques to help resolve the client's issues.

Life Stress Reduction offers clients a unique journey  of self-discovery which starts by addressing his or her concerns.  By releasing the emotional charges associated with these emotions, clients can experience significant emotional breakthroughs. Whether the source of stress is relationships, career, health, self-esteem or past traumas, LST can help to resolve the related emotions.

Life Stress Reduction typically leaves a client with a general sense of well-being, and renewed hope.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) deals with depressive symptoms and issues. This short term treatment of up to 20 weeks deals with the client's main symptoms during the initial sessions. During this stage the therapist helps the client to regain a semblance of functionality, which will facilitate healing. IPT allows for variations that can be incorporated into treatment of a range of other co-existing issues.

Depression usually impacts heavily on interpersonal relationships, and  Interpersonal Psychotherapy measures the dynamics of these issues during the initial stages. Strengthened relationships can lend significant support during the process of recovery from depression.
