►What is burnout?
Burnout leaves people feeling exhausted, empty, and unable to cope with workplace stress.

You are at risk when there is no balance between the demands and pressures of the job and your personal ability to meet them.

Burnout is a gradual process, it doesn’t just happen overnight.

If you pay attention to the signs and symptoms and actively reduce your stress, you can prevent a major breakdown. If you ignore them, you’ll eventually burn out.  

Physical symptoms Emotional symptoms
• feeling exhausted and drained • sense of failure and self-doubt
• frequent illnesses • feeling helpless, trapped, inability to cope
• muscle tension and frequent headaches • loss of motivation and sense of accomplishment
• change in appetite or sleep habits • cynical and negative outlook

Mindfulness-based cognitive programmes (MBCT)
The MBCT programmes specifically target vulnerability to anxiety and depressive relapse, providing information and exercises derived from mindfulness and cognitive therapy.

►Managing anxiety
Anxiety is a natural and common response when facing events or situations that are challenging or threatening.

However, it can become a problem if your feelings of anxiety are very strong, out of proportion and last for a long time.

Anxiety always plays tricks on your mind. It gives you irrational thoughts about what you should be scared of and the horrible things that could happen to you.

The most common symptoms that sprial the anxiety involve changes in thoughts, behaviour and physical feelings, such as:

• overthinking and avoidance • a feeling of dread • a feeling of being “on-edge”
• difficulty concentrating • difficulty sleeping • fast breathing / shortness of breath
• restlessness and feeling irritable • irregular / fast heartbeat • nausea, dizziness and sweating



►Depression relapse support
While recovering from depression isn’t quick or easy, you do have more control than you realise, even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent.

Depression is classified as a mood disorder, however it's not the mood that does the damage, but how we react to it.

By identifying the links between thoughts, feelings, body sensations and action tendencies, you can take better care of yourself when habitual thinking patterns start creating a downturn in your mood.

Aware of negative beliefs and behaviors you can then replace them with healthy, positive ones, helping you regain a sense of satisfaction, pleasure and control in your life.
