About Our Therapy Program

Therapy For Burnout

We help you break the cycle of doing it all. Open Space Counselling provides in-person therapy for burnout in Vancouver and virtually across all of BC. Learn to build the personal & professional boundaries you need to live the life you want.

How It Works:

A thorough exploration of your mindset and how you view your current reality.

An unflinching examination of your internal landscape (internal conflicts, mixed feelings, and self-protective strategies), after which you will look at your situation very differently.

A shift on your perspective of your current problems.

Tried and tested tools that can help you find relief.

When you commit to working with us, you will learn to engage differently with your current people and circumstances and find the YOU that has been buried underneath all these responsibilities.

This program is pay per session, and can be paused at any time. To give yourself the best chance of noticing change, we recommend a minimum of 10 sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Exhaustion and a loss of enthusiasm and motivation for work, parenting, or other pursuits that you engage in are signs that you may have burnout. This can also be accompanied by reduced work performance, worry, sleep problems, and irritability.

Common causes of burnout include lack of adequate social support; taking on more than one can handle at work, school, or interpersonally with family and friends; and poor self-care and boundaries.

Therapy for burnout will first and foremost help you stabilize your burnout symptoms so that you don’t continue to spiral further. This might include focusing on insomnia, teaching you how to take your body out of fight or flight mode so that you feel stronger and calmer. From a more grounded place, we can help you evaluate your options, establish boundaries, and explore your own patterns.
The most obvious causes of burnout are external: the horrible boss, the demanding child, etc. And we totally get that these things are not going to go away. So, we focus on helping you address the self-doubt, anxiety and sense of helplessness that is standing in your way of being the strongest version of yourself. We find that when operating from a more confident and clear headed place, we can shore up the grit and skills needed to cope effectively with life’s challenges. We also examine the workplace or family dynamics leading to your burnout, and help you to respond to these more effectively, and in a way that is realistic.
Burnout is usually a response to life circumstances that lead you to run out of bandwidth. Burnout can usually be resolved by taking time away from the stressful event, or seeking out therapy for support and more robust coping strategies. On the other hand, depression is a mental health condition that can flare up regardless of your circumstances.
