Cognitive behavioural therapy for burnout

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been found to be the most effective type of treatment for burnout. CBT helps you explore and restructure damaging thought patterns about yourself, others, and the world, as well as any bad behaviours you may be engaging in. Aspects of CBT include:

Schema therapy assists you in identifying any incomplete needs or harmful self-perceptions you may have. Schema can help you work through the impacts of trauma by addressing underlying emotional patterns.

Psychotherapy will help you recognise your worry patterns and combat them by reframing your thoughts and practising healthy behaviours.

Therapy elements include:

  • Creating activities and experiences that are both beneficial and pleasurable
  • Changing distorted, primarily pessimistic or negative mental processes
  • Strengthen interpersonal relationships and re-establish social ties by practicing social skills
  • Establishing social ties
  • Developing problem-solving techniques
  • Physiotherapeutic and sport therapy interventions
  • Mindfulness instruction

Group therapy for burnout

People who participate in group therapy can benefit from the support and encouragement of their peers. People in the group can see that others are going through similar experiences, which might make them feel less alone.

Members of a group can serve as role models for others in the group. Other members of the group can realise that there is hope for healing by watching someone effectively deal with an issue. As each person grows, they can become a role model and a source of encouragement for others. This can aid in the development of sentiments of accomplishment and success.

Group therapy provides an environment that allows people to practise habits and actions while feeling safe and secure.

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, there are a variety of psychotherapy group sessions available; your therapist will explore which groups are right for you as part of your individual therapy plan.

Art and creative therapy for burnout

This type of treatment uses arts-based activities such as painting, music, or theatre in a therapeutic setting with the support of a qualified practitioner. Participating in these activities does not require any prior knowledge or expertise.

Creative arts therapy can help you access, explore, and share your emotions in visual, musical, tactile, or literary form to help you confront, reflect on, and better manage your experiences. Using reframing strategies to reconstruct meaning, while also activating social support networks and expanding relationships that will help you recover from burnout.
