We regularly run an online Burnout Group specifically for healthcare staff throughout the year.

The group runs for six weekly sessions and incorporates an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model.  The sessions focus on promoting positive wellbeing via psychological techniques, mindfulness practice, reflective exercises as well as group discussions.

If you are interested in joining a future group please email keepingwell.nwl@nhs.net or complete the self-referral form if you would like support.

While burnout includes many of the same symptoms as stress, there are three specific feelings that differentiate burnout:

  • Feeling tired or exhausted
  • A lack of enthusiasm and increased negativity towards your job
  • Decreased ability to perform your job

Often, burnout results in depressive symptoms, such as sadness or a lack of hope. But it can also contribute to a wide range of negative emotions and even physical symptoms, such as:

  • Frustration or anger
  • Irritability or annoyance
  • Anxiety, agitation, or restlessness
  • Physical feelings of stress, such as headaches, stomach issues, body pains, or fatigue
