Breaking the cycle of burnout

I guess you’re here because you have experience of burnout and are looking for answers about why you’ve burnt out, how you can change the patterns that have brought you to this point and how you can recover. You might be ill, chronically fatigued, stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or just plain tired. You might identify yourself as a perfectionist, a people-pleaser, an over-thinker. Your self-esteem might be rock bottom. You might have lost your sense of who you are, what you need, what you enjoy.

I have a personal interest in burnout that comes from my own experience of several bouts of burnout over the years. I know what it's like to not feel able to face being in social settings because being with people is exhausting, to dread late nights or days out because you don’t know when your energy is going to drain away from you all of a sudden or how long it will take you to recover, to feel anxiety and even panic on a Sunday evening because you have to go to work tomorrow morning and you don’t know how you are going to manage even getting out of bed, never mind making it through another day, another week.


I found my way out. I took the time to get to know what I needed when I was feeling this way. I learned what works for me when I’m at rock bottom. And I explored what I was doing that kept bringing me round to this place of burn out time and again. I explored the beliefs and habits that underpinned this. In short, I got to know myself again.

This experience plus my training in person-centred therapy and life coaching mean that I am uniquely placed to help you understand your own relationship with burnout – what does it look like for you, how does it feel, what are the things that help and support your recovery and, what are the beliefs and habits that keep you returning to burnout. Armed with this information you can become your own best ally in breaking the cycle of burnout.

Enjoying the view. "Am I living in a way which is deeply satisfying to me, and which truly expresses me?"
