• Burnout in Dubai– Friday Magazine feat Dr Erik, Neuropsychologist

    Great Friday magazine article about how to tackle burnout in Dubai.

    Dubai is a city of high achievers – and you have always been one. Now, though, you feel your standards at work are slipping and you aren’t meeting the high targets you once set yourself.

    ‘There is no shame in this,’ says Dr Erik Matser, neuropsychologist at the German Neuroscience Center in Dubai Healthcare City.

    ‘Real burnout is nothing less than a brain injury. It really is that serious. 
And the result of a brain injury is that sometimes performance in certain fields will slip.

    ‘The key is recognising there is a problem. Because the sooner you do, the more likely it can be put right.’

    Dr. Matser graduated as a clinical neuro- psychologist and has 25 years of experience in clinical neuro- psychology. He worked at St. Anna Hospital in the Netherlands for 15 years and was an associate professor of the department of neuroanatomy at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Dr. Matser obtained his PhD in 2000 on the topic ‘brain injuries in sports’ and proved that typical residual symptoms such as fatigue, decreased performance / cognition and emotional instability can be caused by an accumulation of impacts to the head. Ten years ago he started his own clinic for people with brain injury.
