Stress and Burnout

Stress and Burnout treatment at Expat Psychologist

How do I recognize Stress and Burnout?
Stress can be useful, it often ensures that you perform better and that you take action in dangerous situations. However, sometimes it is not possible to convert stress into action. In such cases the tension remains suspended for long periods. This unhealthy stress takes lots of energy and could possibly lead to burnout. The difference between stress and burnout is that if the cause is removed, in case of stress you quickly come back into balance, while burnout symptoms persist.
