Diversity, Equality and Mental Health in the Workplace: the Enfield Perspective

According to the recent 2019 Hays Diversity and Inclusion Report, which analysed results from 5,200 individuals, 58% of professionals look for the organisation’s diversity and inclusion policies when looking for potential jobs. In the recent edition of the Enfield & Haringey Independent, it was pointed out that most people, particularly those under the age of 25, look for information relating to diversity and equality when researching potential jobs; however, 62% have reported that they often find this difficult. And, in the local Enfield area, where there is a huge degree of diversity, it has becomes more and more important to put suitable policies in place. Professionals who look for information on diversity are accessing their suitability within the framework of the corporation. Strictly, one’s race, beliefs or colour are nothing to do with how good people are at doing a job; however, in the workplace, there are always prejudices, and, often, discrimination can be present in the workplace. Sometimes, discrimination is explicit and, in these instances, procedures need to be put in place in order to deal with this. However, and this is something that is more difficult to tackle, discrimination can be implicit or subtle and this can also cause problems for employees. This can also lead to psychological problems including depression, feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, anger, sleeping problems, medically unexplained conditions and social problems both in situ and at home.

If you have experienced prejudice in the workplace, and would like psychotherapeutic support, please ring Enfield Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy on 0207 467 8564.

Loss of Jobs in Enfield Town Causes Anxiety for up to 140 Members of Staff

In the recent edition of the Enfield and Haringey Independent, it was reported that the council has decided to end a deal with the cleaning firm Enfield Norse. This means that up to 140 members of the cleaning staff will lose their jobs. The decision was taken by Enfield council bosses at the October meeting: they said that ‘insourcing’ would offer better employment options as well as the option to join the local government pension scheme. However, local councillors for both the Conservatives and the Labour parties have raised concerns. Local buildings are also going to be sold off and this will also cause disruption and job losses. Cabinet minister, Cllr Mary Maguire, said that the move to sell local buildings would not cause any compulsory redundancies; however, these decisions have caused unrest in the local area, and residents as well as local workers in the Enfield area have stressed that these political moves cause unrest and anxiety in the local community. Gill, a lady in the Enfield area said, ‘We need job security, especially because of the cost of housing and rent in Enfield: without this people get ill and some have to go on antidepressants for depression or anxiety’.

If you need to talk to a counsellor or psychotherapist about any issue you might have, please ring Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy on 07946 579645.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas from Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy

In the recent copy of the Enfield and Haringey Independent, a short article focussed on the Christmas period and some of the pressures that people face at this time. Watching shoppers in Enfield Town can be revealing, particularly when you see individuals with huge Christmas shopping lists, rushing around the shops to get everything done. Christmas is supposed to be a time of giving, where people take a break and spend more time with their family. However, although Christmas is associated with a jolly Santa Claus and lots of fun music, some find this period of time stressful and anxiety-provoking. People are expected to buy presents of the family, and the cost of these presents, together with the expense of catering for an often over-indulgent lunch, can be difficult for most people to afford. Some people have difficulties with relatives; and then there are people who don’t talk to one or more members of their immediate family. Another category is the group of people who have lost members of their family and are simply alone at Christmas. And the expectation builds up… Many people are expected to attend Christmas functions and parties and then go to work the next day; and, for some, this causes a great deal of stress during this period. As a result, many people find this period complicated. Some find sleeping difficult; others develop psychosomatic symptoms or get frustrated or angry.

One way of the dealing with the stress of Christmas is to do careful planning. Some of my psychotherapy clients plan getting presents in a structured way and this helps them not feel too overwhelmed in the run up to Christmas Day. However, they also plan get-togethers with people that they know and trust—these events are helpful for feeling connected with people who make you feel good about yourself. Sometimes, people choose family members; but, often, they choose people in their lives with whom they can connect and talk to easily. If you are experiencing high levels of anxiety during the festive season, and need some additional support, please phone Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy today.

Racism and Psychological Issues

In the recent edition of the Enfield and Haringey Independent, an article presented the images of three football fans who were racist during a match between Haringey Borough FC and Yeovil Town. So far two men have been arrested on suspicion of racially-aggravated common assault. In fact, during the 64th minute the match had to be abandoned as the players walked off the pitch. Anyone who was at the match who has information about these three men should contact the police quoting the reference CAD 5272/19 Oct. At the second match, which was arranged to settle the score, the Haringey manager, Tom Loizou, told BBC Sport:

“You saw the type of people who come out and support this club tonight and the fans sung their hearts out, nothing abusive about it…There’s no room for racism. All you need to do is come down here, watch a game and see how our fans acquit themselves and people should take a leaf out of our book.”

In this day and age, we are, more than ever before, experiencing racial inequality, prejudice and racist behaviours. Racist behaviour is particularly common in north London—in, say, Tottenham, Haringey, Enfield, Southgate and Edmonton—where there is a huge range of ethnicity. This can cause psychological problems not only at work but in one’s social life. This incident is a clear example of how some people discriminate against others because of the colour of their skin; and, in the first football match, the insults were so damaging that on-lookers were unable to tolerate their behaviour. Some people are bullied or abused due to the colour of their skin, and this can cause depression, anxiety, psychosomatic pain, sleep loss and a range of other psychological problems. If you are a victim of racial abuse and need some counselling or psychotherapy, please ring Enfield Psychotherapy on 0207 467 8564. This clinic, run by psychotherapist, David Kraft, is one of the leading practices in north London.

Stress and Multiple Sclerosis

In the recent edition of the Enfield and Haringey Independent, Scott Mills, MS Society Ambassador and broadcaster, spoke of the fact that scientists might have developed an approach to treatment which could eliminate multiple sclerosis once and for all. He pointed out that this approach would stop this disease in its tracks so that it wouldn’t worsen. He said this would stop sufferers living in fear for the rest of their lives, thinking that they might end up in a wheelchair or gradually develop a range of complex and debilitating physical and emotional difficulties. He urged readers to support scientists in their efforts to cure this life-changing disease by donating to the MS Society’s Stop MS Appeal. They need to raise 100 million over a ten year period.

Multiple Sclerosis is a common disease of the central nervous system and can affect both the young and elderly. In fact, more than 100,000 individuals in the UK suffer from this condition. On diagnosis, many people experience confusion and anger: some go at lengths to find suitable medication to reduce symptoms and lead a normal life. Many are able to do this seamlessly without too many further complications, while others still suffer from certain problems from time to time. The medication varies from person to person. If you are experiencing anxiety as a result of being diagnosed with MS, and need some addition support, please ring Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy. Psychotherapist, David Kraft, has had a lot of experience working with sufferers of MS, as well as members of the family. The clinic is based in Enfield and was set up in order to support patients in the local area; however, nowadays, individuals come from further afield in order to get counselling from David Kraft.
