“Love and work are the cornerstones of our humanness.” —Sigmund Freud
Psychotherapy for relationship issues—love problems—is a natural fit. But Freud’s quote points to the fact that work and career problems can often benefit from collaboration with a psychotherapist.
What is involved in a career transition or change of job or job responsibilities?
- issues of identity, who am I?
- issues of choice and life design, what do I want?
- issues of support and challenge, how do I move towards what I want given what I have?
- issues of growth and development, how do I develop myself and succeed, now that I’m here?
Maybe you have taken the aptitude tests, read the books, worked with a career coach or counsellor to identify next steps and get some accountability, but you still find yourself stuck.
As a Gestalt therapist I believe you can make creative choices in your life to build a work life that is meaningful and supportive. There is important information for you in the ways you are holding yourself back, and by exploring this in therapy you will begin to discern the moves you want to make.
I have helped clients explore alternative careers, start businesses, make bold career moves including relocation and career shifts as well as make equally bold decisions to stay put and focus their attention on what really matters to them in their current work.
