Burnout counseling

Burnout diagnosis, recovery and counseling

Burnout is a state of physical and emotional exhaustion that will only return with the right guidance. With more than one million people in our country having (had) burnout, this is a major problem for both employers and employees. Is one of your employees sitting at home with burnout or at risk of dropping out with stress or burnout-like symptoms? Burnout does not go away on its own; this requires the guidance of a specialist. Panthion offers burnout counseling to people with burnout and severe stress symptoms.

What is burnout?

In burnout, a person has gone beyond his or her limits for an extended period of time, resulting in total exhaustion. This is not normal fatigue, but complete exhaustion on both emotional and physical levels. Burnout makes it impossible to keep doing your daily tasks well, even sending an e-mail can be too much. You always feel tired and refueling over the weekend or going to bed early one night is no longer enough to recharge. Often burnout is perpetuated longer than necessary by feelings of fear and uncertainty: about your job, your health and how and why this happened to you. With the right burnout counseling, burnout does not last unnecessarily long.

How long does burnout last?

On average, burnout lasts nine months. Recovery without counseling takes from a year to several years. But by actively addressing the problem with burnout counseling, the chances of a quick recovery are greater. Sometimes it is possible to resume some simple work after only a few months.

Prevention is better than cure

So burnout symptoms are not gone one, two, three. Prevention, then, even in the case of burnout, is better than cure. By offering burnout counseling right from the first signs of stress or burnout, you prevent an employee from sitting at home for an unnecessarily long time.

What does our burnout counseling involve?

With our counseling, we start by looking for the cause of burnout. We then help your employee with effective counseling on both mental and physical levels with his/her recovery. Through talking, (outdoor) exercise and a plan for the future, we will help your employee make a smooth recovery. Burnout counseling is a key specialization within our sick leave services.

Returning to the workplace

An employee’s return to work is not the final stage of our burnout counseling, but only the beginning. The experience of burnout leads to important insights about personal boundaries. Identifying those limits better and making different choices in areas such as work and time management can prevent a second burnout in the future. This also sometimes leads to the realization that it is better to choose a different career.

Added value

Our support saves you time and therefore money. Hours you would otherwise need to master the constantly changing laws and regulations. In addition, the risks when it comes to employment contracts, for example, are not always easy to oversee and can thus become unintentionally costly. We are happy to take these tasks off your hands, leaving you more time to do what you really need to do: business. We also work with an employment lawyer for additional support.

"The coach offered to me through Panthion was a very patient and professional coach. I therefore went through the career path with great pleasure and new insights. My coach was very helpful, resourceful, very positive. This very much contributed to the trajectory. A real people person with good knowledge!"
"Whereas many agencies opt for exorbitant recruitment & selection fees, Panthion maintains a healthy approach with ditto pricing. Last month our new HR Business Partner started after recruitment & selection by Panthion's recruiters."
"Because I was offered a new position with my employer during the process, the outplacement process was converted into a coaching process. Because of this, I can't give suggestions that are helpful to you. I had a particularly good time during our sessions, for which my heartfelt thanks. Rating : 9"
"After being laid off last fall after more than 30 years due to a reorganization, I found Panthion willing to help me look for a new job. From the very first meeting, I felt I had made an excellent choice. Positive, realistic and stimulating were the first experiences where Panthion's career counselor put me on the right path. After being inactive in the job market for so long, some help and coaching is very important. In 2 weekly steps, I shaped my plans and prepared for my next step. With clear feedback, encouragement and expert advice, Panthion supported me."
"5 stars! Thickly deserved!!! I have been helped fantastically by Panthion. They not only helped me write application letters, because yes, how did that work, but also always a listening ear. Advice and heart in abundance. Have now found a nice interesting job. Because of my coach at Panthion, I have always continued to believe in myself. Thank you!"
"I started a program at Panthion because I was not in my place at my old employer. I didn't really know what I wanted in the next job, which makes job searching quite difficult. For this reason, we started looking at what I really wanted. Panthion's career counselor helped me a lot with that. Together we looked at what I can do and what I want. Then my coach helped me get my resume all in order and write cover letters. When I had a job interview, she helped me very much to prepare for it. As a result, on my first job application, I was offered a job that is exactly what I am looking for! So thanks to Panthion, I found the perfect place in a very short time."
