Executive Burnout & Stress
- the challenge of high achievement

Many psychologists now agree that executive burnout is a special type of work-related stress — a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity. Not only that, it can have a severe impact on an indvidual’s physical and mental health. As such, it can be treated as a condition or disorder which can be assessed and treated in its own right.

However, obtaining treatment is not always easy. For example, many people experiencing executive burnout don't believe their jobs are the main cause. What is more, because many experiencing the problem will turn to other behaviours or substances – such as alcohol or drugs – it can be difficult to find and treat the real, or root, cause of the problem. Added to that is the fear of appearing ‘weak’ to colleagues or bosses, which means it can all too often go untreated..

Treatment for Executive Burnout

At Phoenix Individual Retreat, we recognise that the dual challenge of facing addiction or other mental disorders, combined with the pressures of a high profile and demanding job, can often prevent Executives seeking treatment or leave them unwilling to discuss issues with their employers.

We have developed a special programme to treat corporate / executive clients who need to make positive lifestyle changes, for example in respect of substance abuse or management of executive burnout, stress or other mental health issues. High performance and success in the workplace does not make professionals immune to developing dysfunctional patterns of behaviour. Such individuals may be reluctant to seek help, fearing that admitting to a problem might be construed as a sign of weakness. Because the Phoenix team are drawn from a variety of backgrounds – including many years’ experience working within major global corporations – we can offer the sensitivity and empathy to help high-achieving professionals deal with the challenges in their lives.

For treatment to be effective, clients need to removed from the workplace to a place of sanctuary and recovery, although we recognise that their professional lives cannot be completely put on hold. Consequently, we offer a range of services for Executives, including:
  • A personal assistant;
  • Business administration facilities such as a dedicated phone and fax line, conference call facilities and high speed internet access.
  • Controlled but regular contact with the workplace.
