The author aims to discuss her experience that patients with Burnout syndromes need to recover in a unique individualised relational therapy and that they need a slower pace than national authorities are implementing through contemporary national guidelines for health and care systems.The author reviews published definitions of the syndrome and then presents two cases to illustrate the principle of finding the patients' own resources, the value of exploring the history of their drive to achieve and also how to utilize resistance as information about defences and their functions. She uses hypnosis, hypnoanalysis and ego state imagery as a tool for finding the patient's pace, needs and unique ways for recovery.
