Clients often enter psychotherapy around a variety of career issues. Sometimes there are authority issues with a boss or unpleasant co-worker and the client has to learn to manage their feelings and identify triggers. They also may benefit from learning to communicate appropriately and set boundaries. Sometimes they need help deciding whether to look for a new job.
In other situations clients have career goals and want help achieving the next level of success which often means working through various internal or external obstacles.
Clients sometimes enter therapy when they want to make a career change and are trying to figure out what that path would be.
The therapist helps them to work through internal and external obstacles so as to create ‘conditions for success’ in the course of work they choose.
