Are you or your team struggling with anxiety, exhaustion or burnout?

If so, it’s not surprising, as the demand for your services may have increased exponentially since the pandemic, while budget cuts, staff shortages or lack of resources have amplified the challenges. 


Recent research highlights the profound impact this has had on staff wellbeing: 


  • 82% of voluntary and community sector project leaders are concerned about staff burnout
  • 91% of social workers had either high or moderate levels of emotional exhaustion 
  • 52% of nurses are concerned about mental health 
  • 77% of UK carers are suffering from burnout 
  • 92% of voluntary and community sector workers would like more support with their mental health.

The benefits of cultivating resilience.

When staff are supported in developing effective coping strategies, they feel more valued and supported, while also: 

  • Increasing motivation and job satisfaction
  • Improving performance
  • Reducing absenteeism and boosting staff retention 
  • Creating happier and more engaged teams
  • Reducing costs

Meet Sarah Kuipers

Welcome!  I am Sarah Kuipers, #1 best-selling author of The Thriving Giver, trainer, lecturer and specialist in cultivating resilience in caring professions. 


After working for nearly 20 years in healthcare, my own experience of burnout led me to complete a Masters in Research studying stress and burnout. I have been teaching the Thriving Giver principles and potent tools to medical and nursing students, and other health and care professionals for over 10 years.


Passionate about empowering those working in the voluntary sector, health and social care to prevent burnout, restore balance and reignite their love for work and life, I created The Thriving Giver self-paced online course.


This is a cost-effective way to help all your staff develop simple, lasting practices to navigate pressure with greater ease, restore motivation and improve staff retention.


What is a Thriving Giver?

Firstly, a Giver is someone whose very nature is to give or care for others, and it’s wonderful that there are so many Givers in the world. It’s a fantastic trait to have, but many struggle with the Over-Giver Syndrome and ignore their own needs. 


A Thriving Giver gives themselves the same level of care that they give to others, whilst also having a comprehensive range of tools and strategies to manage stress effectively. Then, they can continue to give of their best to the world each day.
