Supporting Others without Burning Out

Supporting others without burning out

Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor

Do you love helping others but sometimes feel it can come at a cost?

You don't need to be a therapist or coach in order to help others.

Maybe you're the go-to person in your family or at work where people share their troubles with you.


This can be draining and overwhelming. It certainly used to be for me.

You might eventually find yourself thinking, "What about me? Who's there for me?".

I've been there, even when I was working full-time as a psychotherapist. At the time, I believed I could run out of steam or be drained by other peoples experiences.

Now I see that this is not true.

We never run out of compassion or the ability to listen.

It's part of being human.

What wears us down is our own thinking—the pressure, responsibility and expectation we place on ourselves, beyond the love and compassion we offer. Stressful thoughts like:

  • Did I do enough?

  • Will they be OK?

  • Did I say the right things?

  • How can I fix this for them?

These are worries that aren't ours to carry (controversial, I know!).

Our real job, which is simpler than you might think, is to stay in our own well-being and listen with an open mind.

This applies to all relationships—whether with children, partners, or colleagues.

You can support and manage people, providing therapy without ever burning out.

That's why I'm excited to help others find their well-being more often, so they can help those around them.

This understanding has changed my life and the next phase of my work and mission is to support the ripple effect that understanding The Three Principles brings with it!

If you are someone who supports others as part of your job - or would like it to become part of your job - I'm thrilled to tell you that I'm going to be running my 6-month program called "Me Before We," again, and this time I'm bringing in my fabulous partner-in-crime, the brilliant and very lovely Dr. Aaron Turner.

If you're interested in joining us, send me a message. I'll also announce it in my newsletter when it's ready so do keep your eyes peeled for that. The program begins in early May, and I can't wait!

With love

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
