About Sarah Kuipers

Helping ‘Over-Givers’ become Thriving Givers.


Introducing Sarah Kuipers


Working for nearly twenty years, primarily as a hypnotherapist, I helped clients master stress and balance their lives. But … I failed to practise what I preached.


The combined pressures of work and being a single parent bringing up three boys eventually led to burnout.  


Unable to continue working I  took a three-month ‘sabbatical’ to re-evaluate my life.

Fresh perspective

I came to realize that with my tendency to put others first and ignore my own needs, burnout had been inevitable.


Determined to understand more, and help others avoid making similar mistakes to me, I embarked on a Masters in Research investigating stress and burnout in health professionals.


In this video I share some of my life’s journey and how it led to The Thriving Giver.

The 7 Principles of The Thriving Giver

These principles bring together everything I have learnt from:

  • Extensive Research
  • My own life’s journey
  • Working with clients for over 20 years
  • Teaching stress management to medical students and other health professionals
  • Numerous interviews with health and care professionals.

The 7 Thriving Giver Principles have transformed the lives of so many people and can do the same for you and your team.
