  • Difficulty coping
  • Reduced concentration
  • Inability to retain information 
  • Reduced confidence
  • Reduced motivation
  • Not committed to tasks
  • Critical thoughts about your performance

Treatment

CBT can be described as a toolbox, allowing an individual to have a set of skills to help reduce their distress.  With work related stress, CBT can offer help in the areas of problem solving, assertion skills, maintaining a good balance, improving time management and identifying and working on areas of perfectionism.
