How to Overcome Fear of Returning to Work
Why hypnosis can help you prepare emotionally for going back to work after a long break
Returning to work after being away from the workplace for a while can feel daunting.
Even after a few weeks away you can start to lose touch with why you’re valuable in the workplace. But what about months, years, or even decades?
Your reason for being out of work for a while may be one of many. You may have been a ‘stay-at-home-mom’, deciding that raising the kids was the most important thing for you to do. You may have pursued a self-employed career for a while and dread going back to work for someone else. Whatever the reason, fears about returning to work are usually the same.
Can I still cut it in the world of work?
The trouble with being out of work for a while is that you forget just how capable you are. Working every day gives you constant feedback about your skills and abilities, and without that, it is easy to feel a lack of confidence.
We also find that people fear being out of touch with new technology or feel that younger ‘whizz kids’ will have the edge on them.
Just because it doesn’t look like work…
It’s vital for you to know that the modern workplace is all about transferable skills. For example, say someone had been ill for many years. To cope with illness you need skills like forbearance, planning around events, self management, communication to others and so forth.
If you have spent years parenting children then you have major communication and negotiation skills not available to younger or childless colleagues. You will be able to manage, direct, influence and persuade. You can manage the expectations and emotions of your child and of yourself and possibly other adults as well.
Anything we don’t do for a long time can start to feel alien to us but it really is just a question of getting back into it.
