How I Ritu Singal conduct Workplace Counselling Services

Tapping into stress triggers such as poor physical health, overbearing financial burden, and lack of mental clarity, I have helped thousands of individuals lead a better life with my structured stress management training framework. 

The benefits of workplace counselling services can be manifold. While workplace counselling services can be disciplinary or personal in nature, stress management training is an ongoing need for any organization looking to create a happier and more productive workforce. 

Workplace Counseling services – The manifold benefits.

I walked into a room full of anxious individuals.

While some were negligent and had hardly any clue about the importance of counselling, some looked at me with hope, mixed emotions and a feeling of trust.

With gruelling troubles that we face in our daily lives such as constant pressure to perform well at work, show up for family, the financial well-being of close ones, etc. , the road to mental peace and a calm mind becomes a distant reality.

Employee counselling is a one-on-one or group session that takes place between the employee and the employer or a certified counsellor to combat day-to-day stressors that can affect a person’s well-being. While employee counselling is a service that is often taken up based on one’s personal requirements, stress management training is an ongoing need for any organisation.

With more than a decade’s worth of experience, I, Ritu Singal, have helped many corporate employees take charge of their life through workplace counseling services, look at the positive aspects of their job, and start living a more balanced life.


What is the process of workplace counselling?

For a large organization, it becomes difficult to take care of each of its employees. As an entrepreneur myself, I can understand the multiple challenges and responsibilities that a leader can have. 

I use a structured framework to follow through with any workplace counseling service.

Once the employer identifies there is a certain requirement, the process of counselling begins. Nowadays, there are opportunities for employees to engage in proactive counselling sessions as well.

Addressing problems with one-on-one meetings: The motive here is to develop a relationship with the participant through a friendly conversation and listen to their needs and personal stories. 

This is the most crucial step, as it forms a foundation of understanding, freedom of thought and expression and complete trust in the counselor. 

I had once met an officer, who was doing really well in his job, but was cribbing for family time, had poor health and was filled with mental clutter. Giving him patient listening was the first step in creating a positive and empowered feeling.

Bridging the gap: In this stage, the counselor aims to figure out what changes are necessary – whether attitude, mindset or surroundings.

There have been situations where I have seen employees resign because of poor treatment from their senior colleagues. When I spoke to him, I realised that his thoughts are based on his personal struggles, and the criticism from his seniors acted as a trigger for him to take such a major step.

In fact, there are many cases where the employee feels that management decisions are targeted at them, such as a ‘performance improvement program’ where employees need to undergo rigorous training and evaluations.

Such scenarios call for positive reinforcement and assurance to help the employee look at feedback from a different perspective. 

Similarly, environmental changes are needed for an employee dealing with life-altering events like a death in the family, a health condition or divorce. These conditions adversely affect an employee’s performance at the workplace and they feel threatened at the slightest provocation. Setting counselling goals: In this stage, the employee and the counsellor sit together to chalk out the exact outcomes that are expected from the session.

I try to stay as objective as possible with the employee and provide a mutually agreed upon solution. Some examples of counselling goals include:

  • Changes in lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking, excessive caffeine intake, sleep deprivation, etc.
  • Coping skills to deal with workplace issues such as setting boundaries learning to say no when needed.
  • Encouraging one-on-one discussions with senior managers to voice opinions and interpersonal struggles if any.
  • Breaking mental barriers and improving cultural fit. 

Implementing what was learnt: This is the last step, where the employee agrees to make better choices and feels empowered and in control of their counselling goals.

Workplace counselling requires cooperation from the employee at all levels. Only with a positive and open mind can an employee really benefit from it.

Stress Management training:

I have seen employees break down and suffer from severe panic attacks after being exposed to long working hours with constant pressure to outperform themselves.

Similar to workplace counseling, stress management training is an initiative taken by many organisations to improve employee productivity.

While employee counseling is often a one-time disciplinary or personal session with a focused objective, stress management training is a continuous process. It can help employees identify daily stress triggers and tweak their lifestyle too.

Organizations have started taking stress management training seriously post Covid. Some of the steps include:

  • Yoga and meditation sessions
  • Frequent 1 on 1’s with employees to identify and underlying issues.
  • Recognition programs to appreciate hard work and boost employee morale.
  • Rewards in terms of monetary benefits.
  • Having an open door policy for employees to walk up and speak to their supervisors freely.

Stress management training has multiple benefits, such as  less absenteeism, better employee focus, a collaborative and performance-driven work culture and a positive growth mindset.

As the saying goes, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein, if you feel that there is no way out and keep circling back to negative emotions and biases and find yourself complaining and cribbing about everything being out of your control, it is your cue to get out of it. 

Some of the common symptoms of chronic stress include poor physical health, inability to focus, lack of willpower and negative self-talk. While there are self-coping mechanisms, it is important to nip it in the bud.
