Burnout: Burnout is not just associated with work and career, but also feeling overwhelmed in trying to live life generally. Feeling fatigued, lacking in motivation, lower rates of productivity and efficiency at work, wanting to withdraw from social friendships an intimate relationships are all symptoms of burnout. However, you can be feeling like you are living a full and complete life being constantly busy and getting things done, yet be experiencing higher incidence of colds and flu’s and yet, not really progressing and often feeling confused as to whether or not you are fulfilling your ‘purpose’.
Whilst not an absolute clinical term, depression and anxiety symptoms often start to present when individuals experience burnout: difficulty in concentrating, incidental memory lapse, feeling exhausted after a full night’s sleep, restlessness, lower frequency of positive mood…amongst others.

Counselling Approach: Helen has worked with a variety of clients to put in place coping strategies to monitor, prevent and recover from burnout.  From working with clients at elite sport level (e.g. teenage adolescent triathletes going through high-schooling adjustment as well as puberty) as well as business owners struggling to juggle finances, meet customers’ demands whilst balancing family life and health, Helen helps individuals to first identify patterns and cycles that have led to experiencing burnout, to then manage the different areas of their lives to achieve the best balance that suits them.
