Nowadays employment, workplace and carrier problems are one of the main causes of stress, poor health and damaged relationships. Many people spend a great deal of time at work, many suffer from the pressures and strains deriving from work. Occupational stress affects a large number of people and it has much to do with quick staff turnover, high levels of sickness absence, human error etc. Working hard is necessary in these crisis hit times, but pushing oneself too far can be destructive. Anyone who feels too much stress at work, may benefit from work counselling or psychotherapy.
