Burn-out symptoms?

Did you know that 1 in 6 of all employees in the Netherlands are suffering from burnout symptoms? This is a disaster for the individuals themselves and also a major financial drain on organisations.

The average rehabilitation process lasts 8 months and costs on average 300 euros a day, amounting to an investment of approximately € 80,000 for every case (Source TNO research 2018). Add Corona into the mix with the attendant work pressures and social restrictions, and the chances are that burnout cases will only increase more in the near future (RTL-Z article on mental wave 2020, in BLOG).

Burnouts are very complicated, long-lasting and have proven difficult to treat. Because burnouts negatively affect body, mind and emotions, they need a comprehensive approach. Enter Empower Ability. We offer far more than traditional retreats and burn-out courses. Our multi-disciplinary, 7-day course kickstarts the recovery process and gives participants all the tools they need to empower themselves both in career and private life.


Our Burnout Prevention and Recovery Programme is by far the most inclusive, comprehensive and in -depth burnout course in the Netherlands. It has been tailor-made to respond to all the symptoms and underlying causes that result in chronic stress or burnout.
