Niamh has a particular interest in the area of self-care for professionals. She successfully ran a ‘Self-Care for Psychologists’ full day workshop for the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) Conference 2018 and has since offered the same workshop to other professions to include coaches and therapists.
Niamh also co-facilitates ‘Wellness Matters’ full day workshops for doctors at Senior Registrar level in the Royal College of Physicians Ireland (2018/19/20). This is the first time doctors have received any input on self-care in their medical training, and the course has been very successfully received. As a result the course will be offered to other doctors at an earlier career stage. In May 2019 Niamh was invited to speak to a group of Psychiatrists from UCD and SVUH on the topic of ‘Mental Health & Wellbeing in Medical Staff’ and was warmly received. In November 2019 Niamh will co-facilitate a workshop at the PSI Conference entitled “Our Doctors are Struggling – How can we Help?’ to a group of psychologists.
