Burnout Therapie Alexander Seiler Hannover



​Burnout-syndrome is a condition characterised by emotional exhaustion along with the feeling of being overtaxed, impaired performance and possible depersonalisation as a result of a gap between expectations and reality. It is the final state of a process of idealistic enthusiasm about disillusionment, frustration and apathy. Burnout syndrome is not considered a medical disease in the first place, but is an additional diagnosis of problems related to difficulties in coping with life. These can be triggered by stress.


Symptoms of Burnout-Syndrome

Emotional exhaustion. This exhaustion results from excessive emotional or physical effort (tension) and this is the stress dimension of burnout syndrome. Those who are affected feel weak, powerless, tired and dull. They suffer from weakness have no drive and are easily irritated.


Depersonalisation. With this reaction to overload, patients establish a distance between their own and their environment. This is expressed in an increasing indifference and sometimes cynical attitude towards people. In other words, they no longer let the problems and needs of others get to them and concentrate on the factual level of the relationship. Work becomes a an impersonal routine.


The experience of failure. Patients often have the feeling that, despite overworking, they do not achieve or achieve much. There is no more experience of success. Because the demands increase, both quantitatively and qualitatively, and change constantly, one's own performance seems low compared to the growing demands. The patient perceives this discrepancy between requirements and performance as personal ineffectiveness or inefficiency. This is also a consequence of depersonalisation, because that way affected, patients have separated themselves from surrounding.

environment and can no longer effectively respond to their expectations. Their own activities make no sense to them any more.

Burnout-syndrome can have similar symptoms to boreout syndrome (getting bored). This term refers to the state of professional understrain and dissatisfaction. This condition can be accompanied by high activity and reduced performance as well as emotional exhaustion.


​Therapy in Hanover by Alexander Seiler

The revealing treatment by means of hypnoanalysis is well proven in the means of therapy.

However, the underlying reasons are usually not obvious.

In treatment practice, it is easily to be seen, that the triggering event was often not the reason, but "only" the cause for the burnout. In the background there is a series of other experiences of loss or separation, which often took place very early and have been very painful.


These underlying causes may go back to your pre-linguistic time. If that kind of early traumatisation gets activated by the current event (stress), this is where the " psychological energy " comes from. If the hidden core issues are found and worked on, the problem will clear like a fog after sunrise.


That's the reason why I always work with hypnoanalysis in order not to "try and error" with your symptoms, but to find the causes and sort them out at once sustainably.
