Problems at work Problems at work

As an expat, work often plays a highly important role in your life. It often tends to be the reason why you have left your home country. Furthermore, for many expats work is an important source of their social contacts. Consequently, if you are experiencing problems at work these may have a large impact on your overall wellbeing.

Our therapists can help you deal with a range of work-related problems such as:

  • experiencing too much stress in the workplace
  • feeling like you are not getting along with your colleagues
  • any other way in which your work is impacting your life in a negative way


Burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.  When the balance between load and load bearing capacity is too much shifted towards the load, you feel overwhelmed and unable to meet constant demands. Burnout reduces your productivity and saps your energy, leaving you to feel increasingly helpless, hopeless, cynical, and resentful. Eventually, you may feel like you have nothing more to give. Problems seem insurmountable, everything looks bleak, and finding the energy to do something, or even care, about your situation seems impossible. The unhappiness and detachment that burnout can cause may jeopardize your job, your relationships, and your health.

Warning signs of a burnout include:

  • You are exhausted all the time
  • The majority of your day is spent on tasks you find either mind-numbingly dull or overwhelming
  • When caring about your work or home life seems like a total waste of energy
  • You feel like nothing you do makes a difference or is appreciated

PsyQ International provides professional care for people suffering from a burnout and provides tools to prevent a burnout.
