Sometimes, when we are unable or too fearful to acknowledge
our stresses, discontent, and a feeling that we are in the
wrong place/relationship/career, our bodies do it for us. They
throw up symptoms that eventually get so serious that we can
no longer ignore them. Exploring and uncovering the meaning of
these symptoms, stress reactions and/or illnesses is a gift
that usually is only appreciated when one is finally out the
other end, and one realizes that the burnout had to happen so
that transformation and a new way could be found.
Body work is also tremendously helpful to ground any learning
made on an emotional level and I can refer to appropriate body
work colleagues should this be indicated.
