Stress Awareness Month – What’s Under The Radar? PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 01 April 2016
“With 440,000 cases of work related stress, depression and anxiety in 2014/2015, and the bulk of that due to workload pressure, the important question to consider is what about the people below the radar?”, says leading stress-resilience specialist Tricia Woolfrey.

“The figures depend on those which are reported, not those which go unreported, or undiagnosed, or even unnoticed – not only by their manager, but by the employee themselves. Some people simply don’t notice the stress they are under until they get burnout, and then it is a lot more work to get them back on track” Tricia continues.

Tricia has developed numerous packages, from consultancy to assessments, from training to retreats, in order to help individuals and organisations overcome stress. “The first thing is to have employees – from entry level right up to the top tier – to understand the symptoms so that they can be spotted early on. Symptoms include irritability, loss of concentration, becoming withdrawn, insomnia, an increase in headaches, IBS and also resorting to eating more and drinking more as a way of keeping a lid on it.”

“It is not unusual for individuals to be in denial about the impact of stress on them mentally and physically until the signs can no longer be ignored” Tricia explains. “By recognising the signs early and taking appropriate action to manage it constructively, without suppressing or repressing, it is possible to restore productivity, motivation and engagement” she says.
