The basic message of this e-book is that you can’t support or care for others safely and effectively if you are not caring for yourself. It is remarkably easy to focus all our attention on helping others and lose sight of our own needs. The result can often be that we lose out and so do the people we are trying to help. So, what is involved in self-care? That’s precisely what is explored in this e-book. It lays the foundations for being in a strong position to be helpful to others without sacrificing your own needs and your own well-being.

Dr Sue Thompson is an independent writer with extensive experience in the helping professions.

The invaluable information the survey provides can be extremely useful for helping organisations to get the best out of their staff so that everyone can benefit from a higher level of well-being. We can also design bespoke surveys to suit particular organisational needs. To find out more about how our surveys may be
