Signs You Need a Stress Therapist

Work stress often stems from long work hours, clashes with coworkers or superiors, and a lack of job security, but many other issues could be to blame. Sometimes work is so demanding that you bring it home with you, leading to a poor work-life balance.

Here are some signs that indicate that you should see a therapist for work stress:

  • You dread going to work.
  • You have trouble remembering things.
  • You bring work matters home with you.
  • You self-medicate with drugs or alcohol.
  • You have physical symptoms: digestive issues, teeth grinding, dizziness, body aches, sleep changes, or headaches.
