The book also explores the obstacles that often stop carers from looking after their own needs.

“If burnout, weariness, irritability and over-giving is a facet in your life this book is one you ought to read.”

Do you struggle to prioritise self-care? Are you constantly giving too much of yourself to others? This book will give you the tools and confidence to put yourself first and make self-care a priority.

‘Self Care For Givers and the Helping Professions’ is a must-read book for any kind of givers, care givers, healers and empaths, as well as anyone who struggles with mental health or supports those who do.

This practical yet personal book explores why we don’t and how we can care for our Mind, Body and Spirit, taking the reader on a journey through common blocks and obstacles that so many of us have to self-care. From our thoughts about how selfish it feels to pay attention to ourselves and what we can do about that, to treating ourselves with compassion when we don’t manage to self-care as our conscience may be prodding us to! Self-care can be about removing that guilt and taking ownership, so that you do not feel you are always offering an empty cup.

“Many of you may relate to how grumpy and irritable we feel when we are tired and worn out, and burn-out is common in the helping profession, but not always recognised until it’s happened. It’s time for self-care to be normalised. 

There are examples of my own difficulties of self-care through agoraphobia, social phobia, M.E. Unable to work for years, by adopting a holistic lifestyle, my story as a self-employed Holistic Therapist is different nowadays – but still a work in progress! This book discusses this voyage of discovery, with an emphasis throughout on helping you find what is right for you – we are all different.”
