Work and career issues

Work and career can play a fundamentally important role in our lives. They can provide us with a sense of our own realised ambitions or of our achievements. At times however, work can feel like a burden that is weighing us down and stopping us feeling contentented. The key is to find a balance between the external demands placed on us, and our internal need for satisfaction and fulfilment. Excessive demands, and complex motivations left unchecked can adversely affect many aspects of life including our relationships.
