Mrs Shannon Swales Psychologist

Burnout Psychology Support Brisbane, Queensland, 4014


Burnout Psychology Support is a therapeutic space for anyone who feels overwhelmed, lost, alone, trapped and exhausted every single minute of every single day and looking for answers, for support to find a way out, a path through the chronic stress brought about by their work or caregiving responsibilities. A state I know all too well after burning out in February 2021, costing me my ability to work and forcing me to move from caring for others to caring for myself. A move that has helped me to the place of wellness I am at today, with the ability to move back to the career I was trained for, caring for others in a more balanced way. My name is Shannon Swales, and I am a perfectly imperfect Clinical Psychologist. I am passionate about supporting others with the mental health knowledge and skills to thrive in this life, to move from chronically stressed, burnt-out states to one of wellness. I offer Telehealth group and individual therapeutic services to individuals (18 and over) who suspect or suffer from burnout or burnout-related conditions. I also take on personal therapy work with a few other non-burnout-related presentations (e.g., grief and loss). See the list of presentations below. I offer a free 15-minute consultation to explore whether my psychology services are a good fit for you. Able to see clients using private health insurance or a mental health treatment plan (MHTP). I am a registered provider of WorkCover QLD (P0006590537) and DVA. If you are a workplace looking for mental health services to support the prevention or response to burnout amongst employees, please phone 0422 695 576 to discuss your needs.
