Therapy For Workplace Burnout

Utilizing Evidence-Based therapeutic approaches, we aim to provide effective psychotherapy interventions. We practice and draw upon various therapeutic modalities to help you with the challenges that you may be facing.

We offer virtual therapy across Ontario and in-person appointments at Scarborough & Mississauga.

Causes of Workplace Burnout

Each year, 1 in 5 Canadians report experiencing mental health struggles. That is an astonishing 7.65 Million Canadians per year! At some point in life, we all need a support system there for us. Therapy can be an outlet for you to safely explore your feelings as well as develop healthy coping skills to navigate your life.

Toxic Workplace Culture

Battling a toxic workplace culture can often feel like an uphill struggle, leaving you drained and disillusioned. It could range from the office being rife with gossip and backstabbing to higher-ups fostering unhealthy competition and setting impossible expectations. These work conditions could be considered risk factors for burnout. Your personal worth and well-being are not negotiable, and enduring such an environment shouldn't be the price you pay for earning a livelihood. Our therapy sessions aim to help you navigate these treacherous waters, offering practical strategies and emotional support to regain peace of mind.

High Stress Work

In today's fast-paced corporate world, high-stress work can often feel like the norm, but it should not become your way of life. This work stress can often lead to job burnout. The constant pressure to perform, meet deadlines, or deal with demanding clients can affect your mental health, leaving you feeling fatigued and burned out. Recognizing this, we provide tailored therapy sessions to equip you with coping mechanisms and stress management techniques, fostering a healthier work-life balance.

Change in Management

Change can be intimidating, especially when it comes to alterations in management. The uncertainty that follows can lead to an increased workload, shifts in team dynamics, or even fear of job security - all of which can significantly impact your mental well-being. Our therapy sessions can offer a safe and confidential space to voice your concerns and anxiety, helping you build resilience and adaptability in the face of change.

Workplace Relationships

Navigating workplace relationships can be challenging, whether it's handling conflicts with co-workers or struggling with an unsupportive boss. The strain of these tensions can permeate your everyday life, making your work feel increasingly overwhelming. Our therapeutic approach acknowledges the complexity of these relationships and offers guidance to help you foster more positive interactions, creating a harmonious work environment that encourages productivity and personal growth.

Therapy and Counselling

Every individual is unique and the same issue may present differently with different individuals. Therefore, the intervention has to be tailored to your own unique needs. We have experience in numerous evidence based modalities. Whether to use a particular modality or not, can be mutually decided during the sessions. We believe in providing culturally sensitive, person centered, recovery oriented, and trauma informed services.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

When experiencing burnout, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can offer significant relief by helping you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours that could be contributing to your stress levels. This approach can be particularly helpful for tackling issues such as toxic work environments and helping you develop healthier coping mechanisms and responses. CBT is a time-limited, goal-oriented therapy that aims to solve problems and teach individuals strategies to modify dysfunctional thinking and behaviour.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Change, such as shifts in management, can trigger feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) aims to help you accept these feelings without letting them control you, guiding you to commit to actions that align with your personal values and goals. ACT is a form of psychotherapy that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing psychological flexibility.

Interpersonal Therapy

Dealing with work and complex workplace relationships can be challenging, and Interpersonal Therapy can offer the support you need. This therapy helps you understand and navigate your interpersonal interactions more effectively, fostering healthier relationships and promoting better mental wellbeing at work. Interpersonal Therapy is a form of therapy where the focus is on an individual's relationships with peers and family members and the way they see themselves.
