A new magazine aimed at workers who are made redundant was being launched yesterday, targeted at employers as well as people losing their jobs.

Bounceback promises "help and hope" to the unemployed, offering practical support to those who want to start new careers or simply retire early.

Redundancy comes just after death and divorce in the list of emotional traumas treated by counsellors, often leaving people "shattered" according to the magazine,

Editor Stuart Andersen, who has suffered redundancy in his own career, said: "I know the emotions people go through and the loss of confidence even when you know you are good at your job."
