The Dawn's Executive Burnout Retreat

Asia's Leading Luxury Wellness Facility

Ideal for Physical, Spiritual and Mental Healing

The Dawn Burnout Recovery Programme specialises in treating corporate and executive clients who require positive lifestyle changes and want to restore balance in their lives. Unlike a traditional rehab programme, our Burnout Programme is created to help address and work on any issues that contribute to, or accompany, executive burnout symptoms such as substance abuse, stress, chronic pain and other mental health issues. Additionally, our highly personalised programme offers a flexible and varied schedule to suit each individuals exact needs.

An innovative exercise that assists the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress.


A common form of talk-therapy, CBT helps individuals identify negative thoughts and behaviours and learn healthier skills and habits.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming

A behavioural technology that helps decrease anxiety, reduces stress and overcome neuroses.

What is burnout?

Burnout is a state of mental, physical and emotional exhaustion that is caused by prolonged and excessive stress that can happen to anyone, especially those high-functioning professionals who constantly operate under stressful situations. It happens when a person feels emotionally drained, overwhelmed and incapable of meeting endless demands. As stress keeps getting worse, they start to lack the motivation and interest that is essential to continue working. Burnout lowers productivity and drains a persons energy, which can make them more cynical, resentful, helpless and hopeless. Ultimately, they will feel as though they have nothing left to give.

How is burnout treated?

Burnout can be treated through a personalised treatment programme that is created to help people overcome its harmful effects and give them the tools that they need to cope with stress in the future. The Dawn offers an effective treatment method that can help people come to terms with the changes that they need to restore balance in their lives. People who have self-medicated with drugs, alcohol or other addictive behaviours can also get the help that they need.

Clients have a minimum of ten 1:1 therapy sessions with a qualified psychotherapist, which includes integrative Coaching, NLP or mindfulness-based therapy. During these sessions, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is used to target the root cause of symptoms. Burnout-focused CBT addresses the cognitive distortions and maladaptive impaired thinking associated with stress and allows for effective cognitive restructuring.
