Mental fitness and burnout


The total amount of knowledge available in the world doubles every five to seven years. 80 percent of the technology we work with today will be replaced by new products over the next ten years. These figures were published by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. That means every individual needs to be enormously flexible, constantly adjusting to changes both in private life and at work. Mental fitness is crucial to enable us to cope with this burden. Here at DIAGNOSTIK ZENTRUM Fleetinsel we help you to find out where you stand. Are your concentration and memory as they should be? Are there any early signs of overload?

Neurological examination

Am I getting more absent minded? Is my concentration getting worse? What does my risk profile for cognitive disturbances look like? We test memory, concentration, logical thinking and mental flexibility using the standardised intelligence and development tests SKT and DemTect and taking into account your family situation and medical history.

The results are then compared with those of a representative sample of the population comparable to you in terms of age and education.


Testing is followed by an advisory consultation in which we discuss the effects of factors like lifestyle and nutrition on any cognitive disturbances. If necessary we recommend further diagnostic procedures.

Stress test

When you are healthy your heart has no difficulty adjusting its rate of beating to the needs of the moment. It beats faster when stressed and slower when relaxed. But if people live under chronic stress the result can be a reduction in the ability to adjust. This may be an indication of potential overload problems – burnout.

24 hour measurement of heart rate variability (24 hour HRV) makes it possible to recognise and treat any abnormalities at an early stage.

Psychotherapeutic consultation

Intense professional or private stress and other problems can lead to mental and physical symptoms. If your mental equilibrium is in danger or if you fear burnout, a psychotherapeutic consultation can help to clarify your situation and open up new perspectives.
To news: “When does stress start to get dangerous?”

Content and aim of the advisory consultation:

  • shared consideration of existing fields of conflict and any ruts you may be in at work and in your private life.

  • recognition of individual professional and personal risk factors for burnout.

  • finding internal and external entanglements in your current environment.

  • finding out where you stand now and developing consciousness of your own needs, personal behaviour patterns and blocks.

  • analysis of options for relieving pressure, personal prophylaxis and reduction of stress factors.

  • encouraging understanding, including understanding of yourself, in relationship conflicts.

  • shared development of new ways to look at problems and solve them.

  • recommendations / advice for further counselling, therapy or coaching.
