I am finding it hard to cope with the additional stress caused by redundancy. Can you give offer any advice?
There is no doubt that dealing with this situation can bring additional stress. Solicitors often leave it too long to speak to someone else about these issues, when in fact the support of family, peers, and professional help can be invaluable.
