The risk and impact of burning out is something that most people want to avoid.
And when a recent podcast episode on burnout rapidly became my most listened to episode ever, I knew we’d hit a nerve.
So I’ve asked Counselling and Clinical Psychologist, Katrina Streatfeild to come back on the podcast and talk about what we can do to move beyond burnout.
We talked about:
So if the thought of facing an unknown future has you feeling a bit exhausted, you are not alone. Have a listen and try the process Katrina is suggesting. It may help.
In today’s episode Trudy speaks to Katrina Streatfeild who has been a clinical psychologist for 20 years and has a wealth of knowledge around mental health. Katrina is currently doing a research paper on post traumatic stress and veterans and their families.
What is Imposter Syndrome? Impostor syndrome (IS) refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be.
Imposter syndrome can affect every small business owner in some shape or form. Katrina talks about unhelpful self beliefs, how it’s not just the mental blocks but also the physical blocks that can stop you in your tracks.
Trudy and Katrina talk about the following –
Saying “no” to things or to people can create intense dissonance, especially for people who like to help others.
In this episode, Counselling and Clinical Psychologist, Katrina Streatfeild, takes us through a number of ways to deal with the guilt and the dissonance. And she explains how to say no in a way that leaves the other person feeling heard, understood and valued.
We talked about:
There is so much that is helpful in this episode.
If you’d like some help with learning how to say no nicely and with style, be sure to have a listen.
And please share the podcast with anyone else you think it would help.
We often think of burnout as something that happens in the workplace.
For example, in the ICD-11 (International Classification of Diseases, version 11) the World Health Organisation defines burn-out as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed (see Burn-out an “occupational phenomenon”: International Classification of Diseases).
It [burnout] is characterized by three dimensions:
But in today’s podcast episode with Counselling and Clinical Psychologist Katrina Streatfeild, we argue that the definition of what constitutes a “workplace” needs to be widened … a lot.
Because burnout can affect more people than just those in paid work.
So as a busy person, whether in paid or unpaid work, are you at risk of burnout? And if you are, what can you do about it?
In the podcast episode we talk about:
Have a listen to the podcast, it might just save your sanity…
Have you ever woken up and suddenly realised that you’ve been going through the days on autopilot and something’s missing from your life? Something important?
Recently, I attended a weekend event that combines self-reflection with outdoor activities. It’s the Get A Grip Of The Grind Festival and it’s designed to help women be bold and focus on themselves for a change (instead of everyone else in their lives they are supporting).
I was there to facilitate a couple of workshops, but I also got to participate in the outdoor activities. And I came to a stunning conclusion … I was missing out. There was something in my life that I needed more of and I hadn’t even known it.
Counselling and Clinical Psychologist, Katrina Streatfeild was also at the festival and afterwards, I asked her to join me on the podcast and talk about that missing thing and why it’s so important.
Listen in as Katrina explains about the other F-word and why we need more of it in our lives.
