HOW MIGHT WE WORK TOGETHER?
So many potential ways.
For example, I loved being part of the health and wellbeing panel at the ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting) 2021 conference.
Many of their members already worked from home but the pandemic has still required adjustments. When I was first approached about being a part of it, I’d felt confident that, having been working from home myself since starting my coaching practice and freelance journalism back in 2004 (adding therapies and supervision along the way), I’d be able to contribute self care coaching tips and mind body practices for my slot and answer questions alongside Rebecca Seal and the panel’s Chair, Radhika Holmstrom at the end of the session.
It was delightful to see feedback from delegates calling this panel a conference highlight for them.
‘I know Eve from several different journalist groups,’ says Radhika Holmstrom, editor of the ITI Bulletin (and Health and Wellbeing Panel Co-oridnator for the ITI Conference 2021). ‘She struck me as having the kind of practically-focused and also compassionate approach that this audience needed! We wanted a focused, useful session with ‘take-away’ exercises and ideas for the participants. Working with her in the run up and on the day itself was straightforward and reassuringly professional. I had complete confidence in both speakers being able to take centre stage.
‘I especially enjoyed the breathing exercises and the explanations of how specific exercises worked on areas of the brain. I’d recommend Eve to others planning health and wellbeing events. Eve has a lot of personal charm, which also comes across: she makes participants feel cared-for, which is valuable when everyone is quite open and vulnerable.’
Thanks Radhika! My pleasure.
Am looking forward to presenting live in Dublin at IACP’s annual conference in October 2023.
I presented on Self Care Ideas for Embodied Wellbeing to Feel Better Every Day (based on the book) at the Counselling, Recovery, Professional Growth and Personal Self Care: A Joint Conference for Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Ireland and the United States in August 2021 (organised by IACP (the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), the University of Holy Cross, New Orleans and DePaul University, Chicago).
