Recently I had a beautiful young lady, come to see me for help. She explained that after leaving Uni there were no jobs available so she had been out of work for many months.
Having undertaking a job under a government scheme she then secured a full time position and had been working at her new job for a few months, successfully completing her 3 month probation and was due for a wage increase.
However she had noticed that her boss had a sarcastic sense of humour and could be moody. Within a short time, he began to make inappropriate comments about what and how much she ate and drank and that she should join a gym.
As a result Marie didn’t want to go into the office and became emotionally and physically run down as the negative comments increased.
A month later she was called into the office and told that she was being made redundant as her boss had decided that he no longer needed anyone to undertake the social media work. She was told that she needed to to work a 4 week notice. A few days later, however a sign was placed in the window of the office essentially advertising what was her role.
Naturally really upset her and she was made to show candidates round when they attended for interview. Marie worked for two weeks but the atmosphere and comments became intolerable. She became very unwell and her GP signed her off work with ‘work related stress” for her last two weeks.
I initially advised Marie to see an employment solicitor as she may have a claim for unfair dismissal for the bullying treatment which she was considering. I worked with Marie on her anger and sadness as a result of the bullying treatment and then we did further work on her self esteem, confidence and not feeling good enough.
Bullying in the work place is very common. There are many narcissistic managers who get there kicks out of hurting and demoralising others. This is not ok. Give me a call I can help you regain your self esteem, confidence and self worth.
I went to see Jacqui last year as I had some issues around self-esteem and felt that I was procrastinating. Jacqui was brilliant, we went through techniques that helped me to clear things that I didn't even realise were holding me back. Since then I have achieved so much including releasing my first children's book. I would recommend her to anyone. Gabrielle Brierley
Hi Jacqui Just thought I would drop you a message to let you know that I managed to fly on holiday with no anxiety on the outboard flight actually enjoying most of it and minimal anxiety on the return flight which was manageable so whatever you did must have worked, thank you!
I cannot recommend Jacqui enough and thank her for everything she has done for me. To have your life back and feel happy again is the best feeling in the world.
Dear Jacqui, I just want to express my sincere thanks on behalf of P and I for your kindness in the way you dealt with P and resolved her fear and also for resolving mine. I did not realise that my fear could be transferred to my daughter, I can't thank you enough, great therapy
Since starting my sessions with Jacqui I feel like a different person. Initially, I was seeking help for my chronic hives, which I had been suffering with for two and a half years. Jacqui is a great listener, kind and caring. She helped me get to the root of my problems and together we addressed many issues which were causing me stress and anxiety. I cannot recommend Jacqui enough and thank her from the bottom of my heart for everything she has done for me.
