HI, I’M EVE MENEZES CUNNINGHAM
I believe we all know what’s best for ourselves and, since 2004, I’ve been supporting clients, students, supervisees, audiences and readers in tuning into their inner wisdom, their Self (that highest, wisest, truest, wildest, most joyful, brilliant and miraculous part of themselves). I love helping people like you tweak (or overhaul) your lives, work and relationships for the better.
Self care is so important. Sometimes it’s as simple as reminding ourselves that we’re worth a little indulgence. Sometimes, it’s about practicalities and getting better at asserting ourselves, setting boundaries and doing the things that support us day to day as well as to create a better future. And sometimes, self care can feel life saving – making the time to create and sustain the routines that support and improve our mental health and wellbeing.

I run Feel Better Every Day with Eve Menezes Cunningham (aka selfcarecoaching.net) and, if we work together, the choice, in terms of the ways in which you want to work and what you want to focus on, is yours. And, whether we work together or not, I hope you’ll find the resources on my site and blog, my social media, book and in a wide range of articles and columns helpful.
They’ll encourage you to connect with your inner wisdom, prioritise your self care, and do more of what helps you Feel Better Every Day.
If you’re after a more structured approach, the Extra Embodied (Wellbeing with Eve) membership may be of interest.
Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview world renowned wellness experts including Martha Beck, Robert Dilts, Paul McKenna, Sonia Choquette, David Emerson and Julia Cameron.
WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I love working with people who are ready to prioritise their mental health and wellbeing. Taking a unique holistic approach, I help them create happier, fuller and more peaceful lives.
I was (and remain) my first client.
I have personal experience with insomnia (from primary school until my 20s), trauma, anxiety, low self-esteem, chronic pain (eased by complementary therapies and big lifestyle changes and a focus on self-care) and, of course (who doesn’t?) stress.
I also have personal experience of getting unstuck and making changes – large and small – to transform my own life, guided as much as possible by what brings more joy. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in finding things that work. Tools we can use to help ourselves.
All of the therapies I use have helped me as well as countless clients.
I love teaching people how to help themselves with simple self-care tools for the mind, body, heart and soul. You can find many of these tools in my book, 365 Ways to Feel Better: Self-care Ideas for Embodied Wellbeing (White Owl, 2017). And access free bonus videos and other FREE RESOURCES. As well as sharing these tools with clients and students, I use them daily myself.
I set up my private practice after I qualified as a complementary therapist and life coach in 2004. Since then, I’ve added other therapies and supervision as I’ve qualified in them.
