“I was ready to quit my career because I couldn’t cope with the pressure”
Why I came to see Lynda
I work as a Senior Finance Manager in Hampshire. It’s a busy job with lots of responsibility and frequent travel. I’m also a wife and a mum to two children aged 6 and 8.
As my schedule became increasingly demanding, I felt as if I’d had a constant cold and sore throat. My back and neck were always stiff – but I battled on through, never taking a day of sick from work. The more exhausted I became, the less able I felt to cope with even small challenges and issues at work and home – but I didn’t want to let it show in case I was judged as incompetent. I’d worked so hard to get to this point in my career.
People thought I was a ‘superwoman’ but I felt like a shadow of former self. Everything felt too much and I was ready to quit my job because I felt I couldn’t cope. I needed to find a solution that would work fast – before everything fell apart.
When I heard about RTT, it appealed to me because it’s proven to help stress-related symptoms without a huge time commitment. Between being a parent and work, there’s little room in my diary for appointments (and I definitely didn’t want to take time off from work in case it affected my reputation).
Lynda is a mother and a former FTSE 100 board director, so I knew she would be able to empathise with my situation and provide workable solutions.
By understanding where my ambition comes from, I can channel it in a way that doesn’t negatively impact my wellbeing.
I’m allowing myself more time to slow down, rest, and ask for help - so I feel happier and healthier.
Life feels simpler now that I can say “no” when I feel overwhelmed.
RTT can also help you overcome....
