Led by London-based Clinical Psychologist, author and speaker Dr. Catherine Wikholm, Beyond Burnout includes topics that range from learning about the causes and symptoms of burnout, to identifying the steps people can take to prevent burnout. From “Switching Off Worry” to “Creating A Balanced Life,” Dr. Catherine designed her program using CBT techniques and coping strategies that help members mitigate their risk of burnout and create a healthier work/life balance moving forward.

As the boundaries between work and home life are diminishing, so many of us are struggling to keep up with the increasing demands placed on us,” Dr. Catherine says in her program trailer. Dr. Catherine received her Master’s in Forensic Psychology before pursuing her Clinical Psychology Doctoral training and qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist. In her video biography, Dr. Catherine shares, “I’m really excited to be working with Grokker because I love connecting with people and sharing useful information, in an accessible way. And I think video is a great way of doing that.”

With nearly 60% of workers reporting stress-related issues such as burnout and depression, employees are feeling the psychological effects from remote working, balancing work and home life, and lacking the initiative to go to onsite gyms for physical fitness. Employees are looking for ways to build healthier habits to combat their day-to-day stress and help them achieve more happiness and serenity in their everyday lives.
