In this age of disruption, there are still some things we think will stay the same; government and its institutions as an example. But we are seeing unprecedented change in the Western Australian State Government. There once were 41 heads of agencies, but as of 1 July there are only 25, with the press reporting many related departures.
In times of change we all naturally talk with colleagues, family and friends. But for some people, and for many of us, unprecedented change brings fears that are hard to dispel. Staff and clients of these agencies may struggle with personal, financial security and professional career path concerns. We’re expecting that the press coverage concerning this unprecedented change is likely to trigger many fears.
At times like these our counsellors provide adjustment to change counselling; helping clients, not just to cope, but to find new and helpful ways through troubled waters.
