Excessive and lengthy stress is caused by emotional, mental and physical exhaustion and in many cases results in burnout.
As the stress builds up and you begin to feel overwhelmed and unable to meet the goals you’ve set, you lose the initiative to drive yourself forward and begin to question the task/s you’ve undertaken. This in turn lessens your work effectiveness and creativity, leaving you with a sense of helplessness, cynicism and resentment: you’ve nothing left within you to contribute in a positive manner.
We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t experience days when we feel unloved and unappreciated, when inspiration fails and life takes on a deeper shade of grey. However, if these feelings of total despair begin to last for weeks and months, then you may have burnout, which requires serious professional attention.
Here at the London Therapy Centre we approach burnout with empathy and compassion, using a range of therapeutic tools to help you understand why you’re feeling this way. In a one to one setting you’ll be guided through your feelings and given the support and space needed to recover.
