The Burnout Psychology Support blog has been through quite an evolution. It started as my very own personal journal to help support my recovery and growth from burnout. I decided to make it public so that others may feel less alone (and me too) when going through burnout. A journal that I have turned into a book: Nothing Left to Give, pre-order now available on Amazon (go to book webpage - link below).
Since recovering and venturing back into providing psychological services in early 2023, I decided to pivot the blog to less about me and my wellness journey and more about writing articles that can assist with yours.
Initially, my blog was posted here on my website, but in August 2023, it pivoted to a blog called Lessons From a Burnt Out Psychologist, featuring in Psychology Today.
I am still journalling every week, essential to maintaining my wellness. You will still hear about my earlier burnout experience here and there and how I keep myself well throughout everything I do. I share because there is power in everyone's story, especially the vulnerable ones. And it keeps at the forefront of my and everybody's mind that we are human, not robots.
If there is a topic you'd like to know more about, contact me to let me know, and I will look at doing a blog article on it.
Lessons From a Burnt Out Psychologist
Psychology Today Blog
In August 2023 I started writing a blog for Psychology Today an online publication dedicated to mental health and the science of human behaviour. Their motto is “Here to Help.” I have been a reader of this publication since I was an undergraduate student in the early 2000s. I had never dreamed of writing for them, back then I didn't dare to dream, but now is a different story and here I am writing and sharing my wisdom with the readers. Yay!
