S2: E1 – COVID-19 Pandemic Special – Overcoming life-changing events

Series 2, episode 1 - COVID-19 Pandemic Special - Overcoming life-changing events

We launch series two on ‘In Conversation With’ with the first ‘Coronavirus Special’ episode.

In this week’s episode, our Head of Advocacy and Engagement, Dinah Williams speaks to Sheryl Puterman, around the topic of overcoming and accepting life-changing events. Sheryl and her family are survivors of the 2004 Asian Tsunami, a life-changing event that left Sheryl feeling overwhelmed and anxious, with a deep understanding of human vulnerability.

Since this life-changing event, Sheryl has studied and trained internationally to became a mind-body nutrition and wellness practitioner. She is also an expert in stress relief management and conscious relationships.

Sheryl and Dinah share an open conversation around the importance of building small, daily habits to overcome stressful situations, breaking the mold of self-deprecating thoughts, and accepting the feeling of ‘survivors guilt’ and much, much more.
