Flight attendants may experience various challenging situations in their professional and private lives: partnership conflicts, loneliness, worries about parents, burdens in their families, financial worries, crises of meaning, exhaustion issues, conflicts with colleagues, or fears about the future. Mental illnesses can also have a strong impact on life, especially if one suffers from depression, an anxiety disorder, or an addiction (e.g. alcohol, illegal drugs, or other non-substance-related addictions such as gambling or shopping).
In all these cases, it can be helpful to talk to a neutral person as early as possible.
As Lufthansa’s internal psychosocial counselling unit, we are your professional contact point for job-related, private, and psychosocial concerns with many years of experience in counselling (board) employees and managers. In the counselling session, we develop together with you practical solutions, new perspectives, and options for action. The counselling may also focus on strengthening your personal resilience and stress resistance. We also provide information about internal and external interfaces such as SafetyBelt, AntiSkid, CISM, #respectslimits, specific external counselling services, clinics, psychotherapists, and self-help groups.
In addition, on publications or on our internal eBase-page (for employees of the company) we have compiled helpful information, practical tips and exercises on many of the above-mentioned topics:
