A 7-Module, Self-Paced, Online Course with Sarah Kuipers, MSc, Trainer, Resilience Coach, and Author of the #1 Bestseller The Thriving Giver: 7 Principles for Health Professionals and Caregivers

Discover how your teams can feel empowered, recharge their energy and
reignite their love for work.

Imagine… your staff being fully energized and motivated.


Imagine… them working calmly and effectively, even when under pressure.


Imagine… reducing staff absenteeism, improving staff retention, and cutting your costs.


Whether you are a health or social care organisation, or you are in the non-profit sector, the challenge is that the increased demand for your services or staff shortages may well have resulted in overwhelmed, exhausted, or burnt-out personnel. 

They may be struggling to cope with the pressure, and losing their sense of compassion.


They may even be taking time off work right now. 

With the innate tendency of caring professionals and volunteers to take care of everyone else, it’s so easy for them to fall into the OVER-GIVER SYNDROME. 


Concern for the well-being of clients, service users, colleagues or family makes it even more difficult for them to take time to recharge on an ongoing basis.


The Thriving Giver self-paced online course, will help all your staff develop simple, lasting practices to navigate pressure with greater ease, while also taking care of themselves. Then, they can consistently bring a calm, confident and joyful presence to their work.


Thriving Teams perform at their optimum. 


Thriving Teams give from a space of replenishment and their giving is sustainable.

Yes, you can. Please check out this link to find out more. 

I recommend that staff spend a minimum of 7 weeks. This allows time to integrate the concepts and tools from each module into daily life, one step at a time. 

You will have access for 12 months, and can work through the course at your own pace.

No! It’s helpful to allow time to integrate the new practices into your schedule before progressing to the next module. You will discover how simple actions, repeated consistently can start to transform your life.  

These include: Emotional Mastery, Self-Soothe, Empowering Beliefs, Your Inner Radar, Loving Limits, Joyful Vitality and Soul Food. 

This course helps staff to unearth the roots of poor self-care and discover how to balance their own needs with the care of others. Once they release the Over-Giver Syndrome, it becomes so much easier to put into practice the evidence-based tools and strategies to cultivate resilience and prevent compassion fatigue and burnout.

Most of the bite-sized teaching videos are only 10-15 minutes, and these often incorporate experiential and/or reflection exercises within them, so that it is easy to start integrating those practices into daily life straight away. 

The majority of the tools and strategies can easily be fitted into a busy schedule. You can choose which practices will be most valuable for you.  

You can work through the course at your own pace.
