In this paper we will first take a look at some of the interest the concept of stress have received in the context of organizational discourse studies and argue that all though this interest have fertilized a range of interesting discussions of stress as well as modern forms of organization, important tasks still remains. One such task is to inform and qualify the therapeutic practice with people suffering from stress and personal breakdowns related to work. Secondly we will present our own embryonic attempts of integrating insights and tools from discourse analysis in our therapeutic practice. Finally we will discuss some of the possible relationships between discourse, power, matter and body as these manifests themselves in the stories of clients and discuss the possible implications of these findings.
