Residents in and near Detroit, Michigan seek caring counselors for help when facing burnout

A job can help you feel valued and build your self-esteem. However, sometimes, constant job-related stress can lead to feeling helpless, disillusioned, and worn out. These are signs of burnout and can severely affect your relationships and overall health and wellness.

For almost 45 years, the Counseling Associates team in West Bloomfield has helped children, teenagers, and adults cope with stress as well as conditions including anxiety and depression. Our compassionate counselors can help people in and near Detroit, Michigan navigate through many of life's challenges and avoid burnout.

Recognizing burnout

Is every day a bad day? If your answer is, "yes," you may be on the road to burnout, which is caused by excessive and prolonged stress. Burnout is mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion that stems from feeling overwhelmed or unable to meet constant demands. Eventually, you may begin to lose interest in the roles in your life. As a result, you may lack energy, feel helpless, resentful, cynical, or hopeless.

Learning about the difference between stress and burnout

Unrelenting stress can lead to burnout; however, this is different from "too much" stress from multiple pressures that affect you physically and psychologically. Often people who are stressed believe if they can regain control, they will feel better. In contrast, burnout can leave people feeling they are "not enough." People who are burned out often feel empty, lack motivation, and believe nothing they do will make a difference or be "enough."

Dealing with burnout

We recommend the following approach when facing burnout:
  • Recognize - Look for signs of burnout such as changes in appetite and sleep habits as well as feeling trapped, helpless, and defeated.
  • Reverse - Regain control of your life by seeking support from caring counselors who can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
  • Resilience - Take care of your emotional and physical health so you can be more resilient during stressful situations.
  • Reach out - We have a team of caring counselors that provide a listening ear and can help steer you onto a healthier path.
