Burnout is a long-term stress-related condition of exhaustion that affects your physical, mental, and emotional well-being and leaves you feeling hopeless about your relationships, career, and other endeavours.

Burnout is often challenging to recognise because of its lengthy and complicated process. As a result, it's typical to believe that you're simply worn out from working long hours or overwhelmed by unresolved issues.

What is burnout and what are the symptoms of burnout?

There's more to burnout than just stress. Short bursts of stress can be motivating for some people, but sustained stress can be detrimental to your health and wellbeing and, if left untreated, can result in burnout. Our approach to diagnosing burnout is rooted in evidence-based best practices and research.

Symptoms of burnout include:

  • Feeling tired or drained most of the time

  • Feeling helpless, trapped and/or defeated

  • Feeling detached/alone in the world

  • Having a cynical/negative outlook

  • Self-doubt

  • Procrastinating and taking longer to get things done

  • Feeling overwhelmed

We believe that an accurate diagnosis is critical to developing a treatment plan that is tailored to the specific needs of each patient, and we use a comprehensive approach that considers multiple factors that may contribute to burnout, including lifestyle, work, and personal history.

When you come to our Chelsea clinic for burnout diagnosis, our team of specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation, which may include a range of assessments and interviews to determine the root causes of your burnout.

We will also gather a detailed medical history, analyse your lifestyle and work environment, and identify any pre-existing mental health conditions that may influence your treatment.

As a patient, especially a first-time patient with concerns, you can expect to be treated with the utmost care and respect at Schoen Clinic Chelsea. We understand the anxiety and stress associated with mental health issues, and we strive to create an environment that is welcoming, supportive, and non-judgmental.

Private counselling for burnout in London

Burnout is a common issue among individuals struggling with chronic stress and anxiety. It can lead to physical and mental health problems, relationship issues, and affect work performance. Seeking burnout counselling can be an effective way to manage and overcome this problem.

We work with you to understand out how burnout has affected you and then recommend the best treatment choices to help you get back on track. Depending on your specific needs, this could be through one-on-one burnout counselling or in a group therapy environment.

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we also offer a specialised treatment programme for adults, which has been established by specialists to give comprehensive support for a variety of mental health issues.

We provide a broad and holistic spectrum of interventions and support based on evidence-based practice and NICE Guidelines.

Specialist London-based treatment for burnout

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we understand the debilitating effects of burnout and how it can affect every aspect of your life. Our expert therapists are highly experienced in helping individuals experiencing burnout reclaim their sense of wellbeing and balance.

In our specialist counselling sessions for burnout, we focus on helping you understand the root causes of your burnout, providing you with tools and strategies to manage future stress, and empowering you with the skills needed to regain control of your life.

During your initial consultation, your therapist will work to understand your unique circumstances and tailor the counselling sessions to your specific needs. Together, you will explore the triggers, symptoms, and impacts of your burnout. This process will help you gain insight into how it affects your day-to-day life and relationships.

Through various counselling techniques, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and meditation, our therapists will work to help you manage and reduce stress. Our goal is to help you develop coping mechanisms that will allow you to break free from the cycle of burnout and lead a happier, more fulfilling life.

One of the biggest concerns that individuals have about counselling is the fear of vulnerability. However, our compassionate and non-judgmental approach ensures that you always feel supported and comfortable during your sessions. You can expect a safe and confidential space where you can openly explore your thoughts and feelings without any fear of judgment.

Will counselling lead to a full recovery from burnout?

Seeking burnout counselling is an investment in your physical and mental wellbeing. Our experienced burnout therapists in London are here to listen, support, and guide you through the process of healing and recovery. With our expert guidance, you can develop the skills and tools needed to thrive in your personal and professional life.

Burnout counselling can help identify and address the underlying causes of the condition. We have a multidisciplinary team of mental health experts at Schoen Clinic Chelsea who can help you understand the role of stress, work demands, lifestyle habits, and personality traits in your burnout. Through diagnosis, they can design a personalised treatment plan to manage your burnout, tailored to your unique situation, goals, and preferences.

Overall, counselling for burnout recovery can be an effective approach. Many individuals have reported improvements in their quality of life, productivity, and general well-being following therapy.

However, it's important to recognise that the timeline for recovery varies based on the severity of the burnout, and ongoing care may be required to ensure continued progress. So, if you suspect you're experiencing burnout, it's best to seek professional help as soon as possible.

At the end of the counselling sessions, your therapist may recommend strategies and approaches to manage symptoms after the completion of treatment. This may include self-care practices, stress-reduction techniques, and regular follow-up visits to monitor progress. By committing to continued self-care and reflection, you can support your long-term recovery from burnout.

Risks of burnout treatment

It's important to note that counselling alone will not guarantee a full recovery from burnout. Recovery from burnout is often a time-consuming process, and success depends on several factors, including the severity of your burnout, your support system, and your personal commitment to recovery.

Counselling may help alleviate burnout symptoms, but it does not guarantee complete relief.

Exploring your thoughts and feelings with a therapist can also be challenging, and it's not uncommon to feel initially overwhelmed or emotional during counselling sessions. However, our team at Schoen Clinic Chelsea are highly skilled with extensive experience in the area and will support you to achieve the best possible outcome from burnout treatment.

Specialist therapies for burnout in London

Along with specialist burnout counselling at Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we also offer a range of additional group therapies and skills workshops which may be beneficial for those experiencing burnout.

We've already mentioned cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) but many individuals we treat also find psychotherapy or art and creative therapy helpful.

Schema therapy assists you in identifying any incomplete needs or harmful self-perceptions you may have

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

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.

We have a variety of popular groups throughout the week at Schoen Clinic Chelsea to support positive mental health. Email us today to learn more.
