In-person and online counselling
During the COVID-19 lockdown, our wellbeing landscape was challenged like never before. No social interaction outside your home, but the Internet opened a portal to a new form of normality. Via the Internet, it is possible to reach people over great distances. We can facilitate training and communicate with people who need help from all over the world.
In our office, the conversation changed from the risks and pitfalls of working online, to what are the possibilities.
Assertiveness or Gaslighting
There is the noble slogan “live and let live” that is supposed to rule society, but life is not so simple. A colleague phoned me earlier today, asking for advice on how to deal with a work situation where mind games are on the order of the day.
Mind games in the shape of extreme manipulation that is also known as gaslighting.
Today is a new day!
Sometimes it seems as though people run out of options on how to deal with life. One small hick-up and they are ready to throw in the towel. This doesn’t mean they are weak, but many things went wrong.
The compounding effect of uncertain times can become too much. Reasons for wanting to give up include:
- They are overworked with too much to do in too little time.
- They expect unrealistic, fast results.
- They remain stuck in the past.
- They dwell on mistakes – their own or other people’s mistakes.
