I had an interesting experience recently, this has happened in the past but very infrequent and not to this extent. Please share your experience if this has occured with you, thanks.
This past Sunday a client of mine came in for training but after a quick warm up burst into tears. Every thing in her life was crashing in around her and there was a tremendous sense of worthlessness, unfulfillment and lack of accomplishment in her life. Training immediately took a back seat and I had to be a reassured presence in her life at that moment.
Yes it comes with the territory
My belief is that as people get stronger physically they also get stronger mentally and many face their real issues for the first time
I agree with Karin and I too will go by my gut.
Our clients develop trust with us and its important to keep your professionalism but also its ok to show your human side when need be.
