    • The therapy process may involve several sessions over several weeks or months, and it’s important to be patient and committed to the process. Additionally, the success of your treatment relies on your ability to communicate any workplace issues that may be contributing to your stress –such as workload, job responsibilities, hostile work environment, or interpersonal conflicts.
