How to Help Others without Losing Yourself
How to Help Others without Losing Yourself, by Debbie Holmes
Are you burned out from helping others? If you are a Helper, you are probably well-acquainted with the intrinsic rewards of helping others, as well as the draining effect helping can have on you. Burnout is a common side-effect of working in a helping role when we, as Helpers, give more of ourselves than is healthy for us. The result: we lose our boundaries, we lose ourselves and we lose what is really important to us.

In How to Help Others without Losing Yourself, you will learn to assess whether the decisions you make will drain you or energize you, evaluate your own needs, regain control of your boundaries and keep them healthy, and finally, give yourself permission to recharge. By adopting these strategies of self-care, you will function more successfully over the long term within your chosen helping profession; you will be an expert on How to Help Others without Losing Yourself!

My experience working with Fiona
I was so impressed with Fiona Raven Book Design. Fiona was very professional from start to finish and was always available to answer my questions and worked with me until I was completely happy with the results. She made a huge task manageable and I will be using her for any of my future projects.
