Stress and mental exhaustion

Perhaps you were aware of the build-up of too much stress, but unfortunately were not able to slow down in time, causing you to feel overwhelmed. You are mentally exhausted. How could this happen, and more importantly, how do you get rid of it?

The causes

The causes of mental exhaustion vary. The moment someone has to deal with too much at the same time but doesn't rest in between, they can end up in an overstressed state. It is no longer possible to relax. Factors such as emotions, life events and work pressure can play a major role.
It is important to pay attention to (over)stress, otherwise it can lead to even more symptoms and a longer recovery time.


You are mentally exhausted or you think you will be soon. Treatment for mental exhaustion focuses on creating the right balance between effort and relaxation and coping with problems. Also, cognitive behavioural therapy is used to determine which unrealistic thoughts and behavioural patterns may maintain your symptoms.

Blended Care

In case of overstressed symptoms, we offer partial online treatment, in cooperation with the online programmes (e-health) of Therapieland. You can find more information on the Blended Care page.


Treatement for symptoms of mental exhaustion is not covered by health insurance. This means that you will have to pay the costs for treatment yourself, unless another reimbursed disorder is determined for you. Ask our office management about the conditions.
