Burnout – a state of vital exhaustion! Yes, Burnout is real.
I have been working with people struggling with burnout for over 10 years and have developed several online video courses specifically designed to help people overcome and prevent workplace burnout. Let me tell you more:
The World Health Organisation called burnout an occupational phenomenon and resulting from ‘chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.’
There are 3 components to burnout:
- Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion.
- Signs of cynicism and personal detachment related to your job.
- Reduced professional efficacy (a reduced sense of how well you are doing your job).
In my experience, people with burnout are often very able, professional, entrepreneurial people who are ambitious and used to achieving personal goals. Undeniably there are several workplace stressors which can lead people down the burnout path but for the majority of my clients it is their high achieving internal drivers and ambitions coupled with societal and technological stressors that contribute to their burnout.
Burnout is experienced as physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion which tends to be caused by long-term involvement in situations that are emotionally demanding, such as constant contact with members of the public and an unforgiving, relentless workload. Burnout exists industry wide and is not choosy about who it affects. It is not a simple result of working long hours, burnout can happen if you feel you’re working towards personal or career goals which no longer resonate with you and now feel meaningless, if aspects of your life feel out of your control or if you need support but are unable to access any.
My online courses are based on my experience of helping clients successfully overcome burnout, the latest burnout research and are packed full of strategies to help you overcome burnout. For the cost of less than one therapy session you can access the help you need at the time when you need it most and work through the course at a pace that suits you from the comfort of your own home.
