Case study

Health concerns

Client was calling with health issues, they stated that they were getting a bit older now and unsure if they could carry on in the role they do in construction. They stated that they have a back issue that causes a lot of pain. The client stated this is causing them stress and effecting their sleep.

The counsellor gave them space to unpack how they were feeling and spoke with them about visiting their GP for support for pain/physio and provided relaxation exercises.

The counsellor provided details of the my healthy advantage app for sleep advice/guidance and asked how they’d feel about discussing with their manager for further support and discussed self-care and compassion.
