Boss Causing Anxiety

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a boss’ abuse: Her behaviour is causing my anxiety to increase; what can I do. Is this bullying?

I have been in my job for over 7 years now and almost two years ago my manager changed. Under my old manager I carried out duties of Business Manager as well as my own duties so I must not be bad at my job.

My new manager has taken out a first stage disciplinary on me four months ago, and at this, I pointed out that I was under Doctor’s care because of anxiety and am on anti-depressants. Because of the way things have been at work this is causing me to feel uncomfortable and make mistakes. My boss has called me a liar and on at least three occasions has shouted at me. This is all since the disciplinary. She is now going to the next stage disciplinary. Her behaviour is causing my anxiety to increase; what can I do. Is this bullying? Even non-staff members have commented on the way she speaks to me.
