Managing Stress

If you are facing stress at work, you are not alone. This page offers some guidance on dealing with and managing stress. You may also want to consider speaking with someone outside of the situation. They won’t be able to “fix” the problem for you – only you can do that – but having a friend or colleague to go to when things become overwhelming can only make you feel better. You might also like to speak with a qualified counsellor in confidence.
