Losing a job may leave you with feelings which prevent you from focusing on finding a new job: fluctuating mood and anxiety and panic related to an uncertain future.
Such emotions are perfectly normal after losing a job or receiving a lay-off notice. It is important not to ignore them but rather to deal with them. If your skills and the help of your friends and family are not enough to resolve the situation, we recommend that you make an appointment with a psychologist.
You can do this if you are registered as unemployed or are a jobseeker with a lay-off notice. If you would like to visit a psychologist, tell your consultant, who will then refer you to one.
If you are registered as unemployed and participating in a job club or in psychological, debt or addiction counselling, we pay you commuting and accommodation benefits as needed.
