    Other. Karate, Buddhism, Yoga, spirituality is the best thing to get in touch with ones self. To know thy self you are better equipped to help others. Acceptance is the answer to many problems. Learning how is the trick.

    Burnout can be caused by an accumulation of many poor decisions. Generally it is simply a lack of proper balance. Bad diet, sleeping, over working, unhealthy marriage, lack of spiritual connection.

    Counseling psychology.

    Not only will it be easier to get into a graduate program, but clinical psych tends to focus more on severe mental disorders. To treat a person suffering from things like stress, burn out and mild depression you would be better off seeking a degree in counseling.
