Burnout Counselling Gold Coast
Burnout is a form of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion that can occur when you are constantly overloaded with life pressures. It is a result of excessive and prolonged stress and it can come from many sources, such as work, study, parenting, challenging relationships and caring for a loved one. There has even been ‘COVID exhaustion’ to deal with, with some people left with permanent loss in many forms following the worst periods of the pandemic.
Struggling with burnout can have serious consequences if left untreated. Frequently feeling swamped and overwhelmed is not healthy on you or the people around you as you feel emotionally drained and unable to meet continuing demands of your daily life.
Signs of burnout may include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Tiredness and lacking energy
- Feeling negative
- Cynical and frustrated
- Closed off to people and ideas
- Non creative and numb
- Difficult to concentrate
- Irritability and quick to anger
- Feelings of anxiety or depression
- Reduction in your usual standard of production
Burnout can be draining and means you miss out of the life you once enjoyed. At Well Life Counselling, we can work with you to identify key areas in your life that are contributing.
