Work is more than just work. It is an expression of who you are.
Freud, one of the fathers of psychology, said the two main tasks of adulthood were to work and to love. Human work is how we express our individual gifts into the world. It is something we can have mastery over and feel creatively innovative in. If this ideal isn’t a reality in your life, then career counseling could be helpful. People utilize career counseling to explore industries appealing to their personality, prepare to ask for a promotion, change careers, manage a difficult work relationship dynamic, and much more. We spend a majority of our lives working, so it makes sense to spend some time figuring out how to make our work lives best fit into our overall lifestyles.
Exploration & Skills
Not sure where you belong in the career world or have lost sight or your unique talents? Use assessments and your counselor to explore options that appeal to you. And once you land in your career, grow in time management, productivity, teamwork, and other workplace based interpersonal skillsets.
Ready to take the next steps in your career path? Whether it is moving up the ladder or changing careers, career advancements take energy and effort. Collaborate with a therapist to catch a vision for your future and chart a productive path towards it.
The difficulty of relationships also happens at work. Leadership, management, customer relations, etc. People are everywhere, but the workplace adds a layer of complexity around social norms. Work with a therapist around the people you work with.
