Dr Amy Imms: Workplace survival skills: psychological safety, self-advocacy, productivity, and ‘switching off’

Dr Amy Imms is a medical doctor who helps people struggling with burnout to recover and create a life of meaningful productive work alongside rest and joy. She is a strong believer that we cannot accept exhaustion and overwhelm as an intrinsic part of modern life, and that with solid evidence-based burnout-specific support we can thrive, not merely survive. Her book, ‘Burnout: your first ten steps’, is a practical guide to taking action towards burnout recovery and creating a sustainable life. Amy is also passionate about addressing and preventing burnout form a workplace and system perspective, and supports organisations through workshops, training and consulting. Effective workplace burnout management can be achieved through simple, achievable, cost-effective solutions that are tailored to the specific work and employee context. If you’re feeling burnt-out, Amy wants you to know that you’re not alone, you’re not a failure, and recovery is possible.
