Workplace stress and the challenges of working from home


Expert help is now available for City Workers facing the psychological challenges of working from home. Tavistock Relationships’ new City Wellbeing Centre is currently offering a range of therapeutic interventions for those affected by Covid-19.

The last six months have been incredibly stressful for so many people. We now face a further six months of restrictions and uncertainty, and what is likely to be a hard winter.

For many people this will result in feelings of isolation, loneliness, anxiety, as well as stress within their intimate and family relationships. Looking after the mental health and wellbeing of workers is essential for the overall economic recovery and working from home may be exacerbating stress and anxiety for many.

Dean Russell, the Conservative MP for Watford, in The Times, cited research which “found that 60% of workers who report two mental health absences will leave their job before reporting a third,” and he warns that without “timely and effective intervention, some conditions could cause severe long-term damage.”

At our new City Wellbeing Centre, we are providing online therapeutic support for people who live or work in and around the City.

Services designed to help those experiencing a range of emotional and psychological difficulties are currently being delivered by expertly trained psychotherapists from Tavistock Relationships – which has over 70 years’ experience supporting individuals and couple with mental health concerns and relationship difficulties.
