Symptoms and effects of burnout

Most of us have days when we temporarily feel overloaded, but when the pressure of constant stress becomes intolerable, it can take a massive toll on our wellbeing. Burnout reduces a person’s productivity, saps their energy, and can leave them feeling hopeless, angry and resentful. Burnout can also lead to physical problems such as heart palpitations, chest pains, and recurrent sickness and may also lead to the increased use of alcohol or other substances.

The most common symptoms of burnout

  1. severe exhaustion and excessive workload
  2. cynical attitude and behaviour
  3. mood swings and the absence of positive emotions
  4. catastrophic thoughts
  5. lack of support or rewards
  6. lack of motivation


Treatment for burnout

Burnout treatment

Stressful experiences that can contribute to burnout can include a heavy workload, financial or legal difficulties, family arguments, relationship problems, health issues or the loss of a loved one. However, with professional help and support from qualified clinical experts, it is possible to overcome burnout by learning to process stress in a healthy way.  If you believe you may be suffering from burnout please contact us.


We provide the very best care and comfort. The treatment investment starts at CHF 97,000 per week. This covers all programme costs excluding: transportation to/from the client’s home to Zurich; medical issues unrelated to the treatment programme; Continuing Care. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies) and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured may be reimbursed by their health insurance for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.
