Reading Time: 4 minutes

Content Roadmap

Banking is challenging due to its rigorous demands for stamina and resilience. The industry operates under relentless pressure and a fast-paced environment, which can overwhelm even the most experienced professionals. Cultivating resilience is crucial, as it enhances your ability to maintain composure and effectiveness under stress, helping you navigate through demanding situations with greater ease.

So, how do you beef up your resilience? Therapy can be a game-changer. Here at the Bohangar Practice, now proudly serving Bromley, we specialize in tailored 1-to-1 sessions combining Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural therapies. These sessions are all about equipping you with the right tools to handle stress, anxiety, and the other mental hurdles that come with a high-octane job like banking.

In this blog post, let’s dive into how talking therapy can be your secret weapon to not just survive, but thrive in your banking career.

What is Resilience?

Resilience is the ability to cope with stress, adversity, and difficult situations. It’s capacity to bounce back from setbacks, maintain a positive outlook, and adapt to changes effectively. Resilience is a crucial quality for professionals working in banking, where they face high levels of stress, long hours, and constant pressure to perform.

Resilience is not a fixed quality. It’s a skill that can be developed over time with practice, training, and support. Some people may be naturally more resilient than others, but everyone can learn to become more resilient with the right tools and techniques.

How Therapy in a South East London Practice Helps Build Resilience

In therapy using an array of strategies drawn from CBT approaches combined with Hypnotherapy to help you explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment. The therapist will listen to you without judgment and help you identify patterns of thinking or behaviour that may be causing you stress or anxiety.

Here are some ways in the Bohangar Practice we can help build your mental health resilience.

Develop Coping Strategies

Talking therapy can help you develop coping strategies to deal with stress and anxiety. The therapist will work with you to identify the triggers that cause you stress and help you develop coping mechanisms to deal with them. Coping strategies can include deep breathing, meditation, exercise, and other relaxation techniques.

Identify Negative Thoughts

We can help you identify negative thoughts and beliefs that may be holding you back. Negative thoughts can be self-defeating and cause you to feel anxious, stressed, or depressed. The therapist will help you challenge these negative thoughts and replace them with more positive and realistic ones.

Improve Communication Skills

In Therapy, we can help you work on improving your communication skills. Effective communication is essential in banking, where you need to communicate complex information to clients, colleagues, and other stakeholders. The therapist can help you develop communication skills such as active listening, empathy, and assertiveness.

Build Self-Esteem

Greater confidence with the skills learned in the therapy room, and applied in the real world, can lead to improved levels of self-esteem and confidence. In banking, it’s essential to have a strong sense of self-esteem to handle the pressure and demands of the job. The therapist can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and work with you to develop a more positive self-image.

Improve Emotional Intelligence

One of the key takeaways, that many find after completing a course of talking therapy is the help it delivers in helping you improve your emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognise and understand your own emotions and the emotions of others. It’s a crucial skill in banking, where you need to build relationships with clients, colleagues, and other stakeholders. The therapist can help you develop emotional intelligence skills such as empathy, self-awareness, and social skills.

Develop Resilience

Going back full circle on the topic of this blog post, the combination of factors covered and learned in therapy can help you develop resilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from setbacks and maintain a positive outlook in the face of adversity. The therapist can help you develop resilience skills such as problem-solving, goal-setting, and positive thinking.


Building resilience is essential for professionals working in banking. High-pressure environments can be challenging, but with the right help and guidance, building resilience is possible.
