Stress & Burnout

In today’s fast-paced world, stress and burnout are common challenges. At Midpoint Psychology, we acknowledge the impact of these issues on mental health and overall wellbeing.

What is Stress & Burnout?

Stress is a natural response to situations in which we feel we cannot cope. It is commonly described as feeling overwhelmed, tense, or worried. Not all stress is detrimental: in some circumstances, it can be constructive – motivating us to accomplish tasks or perform well.
However, if stress is ongoing or the stress response continues over a long period, it can result in a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion – also known as burnout.

Indicators of Stress & Burnout

Recognising the signs of prolonged stress and burnout is crucial for proactive intervention. Persistent fatigue, changes in sleep patterns, reduced concentration, and feelings of cynicism or detachment are common indicators that stress may be reaching a burnout stage.

How Therapy Can Help

Therapy can help individuals experiencing stress and burnout by providing a safe space to explore and understand the underlying sources of their symptoms. Through various therapeutic techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices, therapy helps individuals develop coping strategies, improve self-awareness, and learn effective stress management skills.
Additionally, therapy offers emotional support, validation, and guidance in making necessary lifestyle changes to promote overall wellbeing and prevent future burnout.
