How to get the attention of the Media

How To Get The Attention Of The Media’ at the Irish Biz Party Inspires conference Dublin, April 2015

‘Working with Victoria has been a truly fantastic experience. Her approach is so refreshing, she provides the right mix of practical advice and personal guidance. She is incredibly supportive, sensible and knows how to help Karina+Melvin,+Dublin+Counselloryou get results. Since starting to work with her I have moved completely out of my comfort zone, but she has prepared me and given me the tools and confidence to do it. I thoroughly enjoy each session and have found the work invaluable in growing my business. The work we do is very comprehensive, from looking at marketing, to engaging with media, to planning. She is a guru, guide, business advisor, media maven and a pleasure to work with!’ Karina Melvin, psychotherapist, psychologist  ‘Victoria seems almost disappointingly normal and pleasant. She outlined my current, rather pitiful state of mind, and she was so accurate I found myself holding my breath. There were no false promises, if you are looking for sneak previews of tall, dark strangers traveling over water, or any of the usual, you’ll be coming away empMarian Keyesty-handed. Instead, it was more of an incredibly intense advice or counseling session, but one that was steeped in compassion, and had its basis in universal truths. Really, you had to be there. Because the change she wrought on me was due to much more than the effect of mere words. As I left I had no idea whether I really had been in conversation with my own personal angels, but I didn’t care. I remembered all the good things I’d already known but had managed to forget and I felt better than I had in ages-safe and cherished, restored to myself: happy to be the person living my life.’  Marian Keyes, from ‘Under the Duvet’

Have you had a VERY exciting sex life?

Have you had a VERY exciting sex life?  Have you had lots and lots of lovers? An open relationship?  Some interesting sexual quirks?  Do you look sensational in rubber? Jane Fonda is exceptional in all kinds of ways, her life so far has been action-packed and utterly riveting. At the age of 78, she claims that her life is only JUST BEGINNING and she has found love and success for the umpteenth time.   Because of this, Jane was on the cover of the Sunday Times Style magazine, posing in some sexy sequinned trousers and cool, pointy toed kitten heels, while inside the mag there was an 8 PAGE spread.  If you calculate what that publicity would cost to buy, you are talking hundreds of thousands of £s $s Euros, but you cant actually BUY that kind of publicity, because while most of us look at the pictures in the ads, we don’t give the information any credibility because we KNOW it is an ad.  When we read a feature, we identify with the human beings in the story, and we develop an emotional bond with them.  In the case of Jane Fonda, we may have been devotees of the Jane Fonda Workout (me) or we may have loved ‘Barbarella’ (me too) or we may have also married many times and always chosen men who liked to sleep with lots of other women (luckily not me!) However it is that we identify with Jane, we get more interested in whatever she is selling just because we somehow feel that we know her.  And that creates amazing brand loyalty, which... read more

Are You Holding Yourself Back with a Lack of Confidence?

This morning, I was feeling kind of rubbish. I mean really, really crappy. Physically, I have the flu and I feel knackered and run down. Mentally, I am going through a major wobble, a major ‘Why is this happening?’ dreading the future, thinking all the negative thoughts, thinking ‘What the F**K is going to happen to me? How will I survive?  Should I just try and get a job in a supermarket?  How could I ever think that I can be happy or successful?’ etc etc etc  Emotionally, I was just trying to walk to the coffee shop without bursting into tears, and just about managing it. Sometimes, life can seem really hopelessly messy. My life certainly seems really messy at times. And it doesn’t matter how many qualifications you have, how much therapy you have had, how much time you spend meditating, doing yoga and drinking wheat grass, life STILL gets messy……….or is that just me? When this happens to me, I figure I have two choices. One is curl up in a heap with Netflix and chocolate. Two is ask some useful questions.  Not ‘why is this happening?’ but more like ‘What could I do with this?  What can I learn from this?  How can this be better?  How can I see this differently?’ Today, I was very lucky because I had already arranged to have a life coaching session, and Fiona, my coach is such a gorgeous person that I already knew that just having her around would cheer me up. But Fiona did a lot more than just cheer me up. She made me see... read more

Inspiring others with your story

Inspiring others with your story One of the main reasons that human beings love stories is because they can help us to learn useful strategies for dealing with life’s many ups and downs and rocky patches.  When we are struggling with grief, or loss or money worries or health challenges or any of the many, many things that we struggle with……even just that thing of wondering if other people will think we are ugly or not good enough……we read stories about people who have MUCH bigger problems and challenges than we have, people who get through those challenges and tell us ‘Hey, I got through it and you can too!”.  These people’s stories are often featured in the media, and they can really lift our spirits when we are feeling a bit sorry for ourselves. One absolutely AMAZING and totally awe-inspiring story that I recently read was about a teenage girl from Syria called Nujeen Mustafa.  Nujeen is a refugee (she absolutely detests the word refugee, more than any other word in the English language, she says it means a second class citizen, someone that everyone wishes would go away).  She made the journey from war-torn Aleppo in her wheelchair on a rubber dinghy to the Greek island of Lesbos, and is now waiting for asylum in Germany. To help her with the sheer terror of the journey, she practiced breathing exercises that she learned from watching ‘Brain Games’ on National Geographic, which showed how feelings of fear and panic are controlled by the brain.  She breathed deeply and told herself over and over that she was strong. This amazing... read more
