Hello and a very good afternoon to you all! Following up from my last blog post, I am delighted to let you all know that on 28th August, I was awarded the Runner Up in the JCI Mayo Friendly Business Awards 2018 in the Customer Care category. This is a fantastic boost for Eden Wellness, especially as it is based on being 'secret shopped'. A lovely evening was had by all, and I would like to congratulate all the category Winners who went to the National Awards on the 12th October. More details can be found on the JCI Mayo website.
Following on from the JCI Mayo Friendly Business Awards, I was honoured to be awarded WINNER in the Health and Fitness Category on 7th September at the Mayo Style Awards - I was happy enough to be selected as a Finalist, so this was a real surprise! A fantastic night was had by all at Breaffy House Hotel, followed by great coverage of the event in the Connaught Telegraph Newspaper.
I am coming up to my 14th anniversary as a Clinical Hypnotherapist - I celebrate every 4th December to remember the day I was awarded my first Diploma in Hypnotherapy. As you may be aware, we are required to carry out a number of Continuous Professional Development hours per year. This year, I have studied Sports Psychology, BWRT Deep Mind Protocol, Defusing Depression, Relationship Repair, Ageing Unplugged, and am in the middle of an ITEC Personal Trainer Diploma course with Evolution Institute which is absolutely fantastic! I am enjoying every moment of it. I am already looking forward to whatever it is I will choose to study in 2019 - there's a world of information and learning out there.
In September, I started teaching my third Hypnotherapy Professional Practitioner Diploma at my training school, EICH Ireland. Students are loving the course content - as usual - and I am thoroughly enjoying teaching. As usual, the time is flying; I am already preparing notes for Module 3, which focuses on Stress and Anxiety - something we are sadly all too familiar with. Thankfully, this module teaches many coping mechanisms as well as teaching where stress and anxiety come from and why they are there. I am already welcoming applications for the next course, starting September 2019, one weekend a month for 10 months. Upon successful completion, you will gain two diplomas; one in Hypnotherapy with Psychotherapy, and one in Hypnoanalysis. Feel free to visit the website or email me for an application form. EICH Ireland was shortlisted as a finalist in the aforementioned JCI Mayo Friendly Business Awards, and it is recognised by leading hypnotherapy and psychotherapy registers across the UK and Ireland - visit the accreditation page here to read more.
Until next time, have a lovely weekend all, whatever it is you're up to. I'll be heading to The Movement in Castlebar for week 7 of our Diploma in Personal Training with Evolution Fitness Institute!
