Almost 16% of employees in organizations in the Netherlands experience burnout complaints (Hooftman et al). With an employed labor force of 8.7 million people, this means more than 1.3 million people (CBS). As a coach, you will regularly come across people who walk around with burnout complaints. With coaching you can mean a lot to these people.

This article provides guidance on how to check when you can effectively start using your methods. We also discuss the question of what you can do for people with an (impending) burnout before you start working with your client with therapeutic methods.
