Is your work stress becoming persistent, pervasive, and you feel anxiety along with loss of self-confidence and/or depression? Then it may be time to seek out a professional therapist and reflect on your situation. Every person has had a job, experiences work related stress. Any job can cause a person stress with pressures to meet deadlines, complete a challenging obligation, just showing up everyday.
