Our daily life is full of hassles, deadlines, frustrations, and demands. Stress isn’t always bad. For many female professionals stress is so normal that it has become a way of life. In small doses, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best, but when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price.

Then it becomes chronic stress and that has a negative effect on you on a physical, emotional, behavioural and cognitive level. You feel overwhelmed, have a low energy level and you keep running in a vicious circle with the effected of feeling depleted.

Create vitality through alignment of body & mind

When we suffer from burn-out symptoms or burn-out, our body is not able to recover itself anymore, we are suffering from chronic stress. This is when we have been asking our bodies too much without offering it time to recover. In chronic stress state the body has created a physical disruption with the effect that the ability of recovery is lost.

Our bodies have given us many signals during this process of asking too much of ourselves during a long period of time. It can be years that you have been asking more of your body without giving it recovery or recharge time. 

We have been pushing ourselves without taking a break. We lost touch with what our bodies have been saying, mostly because we are so wired up in what our minds are saying to us. We have been ignoring the needs of our bodies and we experience the burn-out symptoms on a  physical, cognitive, psychological and behavioral level.

My Burn-out recovery and reintegration approach

Working on a program with me, we we go through the following elements

Phase 1. Relaxation: Alignment between Body and Mind 
We will focus on aligning the body and mind to feel the physical and emotional signals of the body to be able to take the right decisions regarding your daily vitality. We work also with energy & time management to create a personal balance to choose healthy options to be active or recharge during your day. We work on a daily schedule with activities which enables you to recover. The recovery is stimulated through moderate exercise and various relaxation and breathing exercises and developing body awareness.

Phase 2: Awareness: Gaining Self-Awareness and Insight                                             
During the second phase, when vitality levels are grown, there is more space to for awareness. To receive insights to be able to be conscious about your behavior regarding the stress sources. We work on becoming aware of the patterns of behavior towards the stress sources as this is the start to transform your attitude and behavior.

Phase 3: Transformation: Self-management: self-direction and long term vitality
During this phase we take as input the insights of the second phase and we work on skill training to enable you to deal in a vital way to the stress sources. Based on the newly acquired skills, you are able to develop boundaries, saying no to things that are not nourishing, identify your needs and act upon them to ultimately create a life style that is nourishing you.

Phase 4: Reintegration at the workplace
When you are ready to go back to work, we create together with your employer, the arbo-doctor and you a re-integration plan. I advice your manager how to manage the re-integration process and steer this phase to create a smooth trayectory. 

This program is for:

  • Women with young kids that are facing chronic stress and see the importance of aligning their bodies with their minds to be able to recover from burn-out (symptoms).
  • Women at executive level that are not in a phase of burn-out, but feel severe stress signals and wish to learn vital coping mechanisms to create a vital life or career by themselves.

This program is not for:

  • Women that are not open to mindfulness, bodywork and meditation. 
  • Women that feel that want to change something in themselves but do not commit to do the work themselves
  • Women that want quick fixes and are in a hurry to recover from burn-out

RESULTS:Based on what other clients have experienced you can expect:

  • You are recovered from your burn-out complaints and you feel aligned
  • You know how to set priorities and you are able to take autonomous decisions and choices
  • You can take care of your own well-being independently in your life
  • You have gained insight in the causes of your stress symptoms and you have gained skills to deal with stress in a sustainable way
  • You know what creates fulfillment and alignment in your life
  • You act in an independent way and you are able to influence your outside world by having gained new communication and influencing skills.  

    The above mentioned results depend on the client. Clients have reached these results, but only because they have done the work themselves. 


I find it important to work with the right clients. This means that I first ask people to fill in an intake form to identify your needs and challenges. When I have gone through the intake form I can see if I am the right person for you and I will invite you for an intake call to get to know each other better to see if we are a match. In case I see we are not a match on paper, I will come back to you with references and other resources so that you will be helped through other people and means from a well trusted community. 

You can start the exploration phase of working together by filling in the button below and I will come back within two working days.

When you would like to have a feel for what this service can do for you, you can read the experiences of other clients. When you are on a sick leave and you wish to recover and you need guidance during your reintegration, read the following succes story form a client of mine who did this program with me and she and her employer received guidance during her reintegration process.

The program has the same elements with added guidance to create a smooth integration process. Because of the collaboration between her employer, herself and me,  she was able to reintegrate in her previous role in a calmer, autonomous way where she is currently thriving.

Following this burn-out and stress recovery program has given me my lifeback, so I can only say great things about it. I have learned to become much " more self-aware, I am able to manage my energy levels and my energy levels are back to normal now. I know what are stressful situations and people and  I step away from it. I now realize why I do things and I have learned what is not good for me and I choose not to allow that in my life. "

Matty Touray


“I met Eva when I was at a crossroads, feeling very lost and incapable of moving forward. Eva accompanied me, always providing support, asking questions, helping me stay true to myself. Thanks to her, and the hard work we did together, I now have a job that gives me energy; I have learnt to listen to myself, to my body and my feelings; to recognise early signs of stress and to deal with them." 

Elisa Matas

" I heard of Eva while going through a burn out. Three years of being a single, more than full time working, living abroad with no family and being a mother of two had led my body in one big strike (it's a french body after all): I stopped sleeping at ALL, went from anxiety crisis to another sleepless night, was ashamed of myself and felt like a total failure to my kids, my work, and mostly myself.

And then I met Eva. Eva told me that maybe it was darn time to listen to what my body had to say. Eva taught me and guided me into listening what my body had to say. Eva helped me realizing who I really was, what my core qualities were, and yeah, my defaults too.

Eva helped me draw the pictures of my beliefs, a picture of myself and be at peace with it. Sometimes it takes a very special person to abandon yourself, to open the jars of your fears and pains you kept closed for so many years. Eva's warm and empathetic presence made her my person to do that work. And I dropped those heavy suitcases of fears and pain and for the first time in my life if could look in a mirror and say to myself: you are doing a good job girl, no need to be superwoman anymore.

That may sound a little bit like an over statement but to me it is really what it was: the work with Eva has rocked my life upside down, it gave me the peace and confidence I could never find on my own the last 20 years. And that is one big present to be given by someone."
