Support Group Summary from our Therapist (What is a support group?)

Updated on Oct 20 2010

Life is a juggling act, it seems, to most of my clients. Most clients find themselves filling multiple roles and balancing these roles takes it's toll on our mental health. Burn out is inevitable. Insomnia, exhaustion,irritability, anxiety, tearfulness and a sense of failure are some of the symptoms associated with burn out. Many clients start the session by saying 'I just feel so overwhelmed'. Modern technology has allowed people to take their work wherever they go, we are constantly in contact with the outside world. As a result there is little room to center our being and tune out the contant noise around us. Regrouping and restoring is neglected with serious consequences. It is essential to take time out for solitary activities as well as time out with our partners and families. At these restorative opportunities it is important to turn off cell phones or at least silence them so that only emergencies come to our attention. Balance does not find us, we have to go in search of balance, it is an active process that demands we put ourselves first for at least a small part of the day. Feel free to share with us what works for you!!!
