THRIVING GIVER by Sarah Kuipers

by: Sarah Kuipers

Sarah is a Cygnus member who herself suffered burnout and then went on to do a Master’s Degree studying the same thing in health and care professionals. Not only is she now an expert but she has written this book to help anyone who is a carer in any form to look after themselves. I even think it makes for a wonderful self-help book for anyone. It’s no-nonsense and gets straight to the point, so it doesn’t get bogged down in vast exposition and theory, but there are also plenty of illustrative stories and anecdotes. People need a battery of techniques and care rituals to help them in excessively demanding situations and this book is full of them, from becoming more assertive to replenishing your energy and nourishing your spirit. Everyone wants to do their best for people who need help and this book will ensure that we can do it with confidence and resilience.
