Praise for Self-Care Revolution
“Ellen is to be congratulated on this contribution to the self-care revolution.”
“The Self-Care Revolution has arrived! Self-care is a practical, person-centred set of activities that we should all be doing to maintain our health, wellness and wellbeing. Through self-care people can be healthier and remain so into old age, managing minor ailments themselves. They can also better manage, delay or even prevent the appearance of lifestyle diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and many cancers.
"Playing a vital role in health and not least in encouraging people to self-care, helping professionals are in the front line of the revolution. They can and should be role models themselves, practising what they preach. In her valuable eBook Ellen Rondina focuses on helping the care-giving professionals themselves to self-care. The book presents a practical guide to what self-care is, assessing one’s self-care situation, identifying strengths, overcoming barriers and making a personal self-care plan. Ellen is to be congratulated on this contribution to the self-care revolution.”
—David E. Webber Ph.D, President, International Self-Care Foundation (ISF)
“Saving grace to the caregivers and healers”
“Self-Care Revolution is a saving grace to the caregivers and healers of the world that must, in order to continue their much needed work, take care of themselves first. Ellen’s five pillars provide a road map for wellness from the inside out. Combining engaging stories with practical action oriented steps and journaling exercises, this book will inspire you to live a happier, healthier life."
—Kathryn Kemp Guylay, award-winning and bestselling author of six books and transformational leader
“Intelligent… Relevant… and Practical!”
Ellen skillfully leads us on a journey of Self-Evaluation, mindfully highlighting the conflicts faced by caring people working in demanding and pressured environments. This book is packed with personal and professional insight, which combined with a pragmatic hands-on approach offers the reader a pathway to establish a base line of real and lasting Self-Care. The workbook is a fabulous Bonus! An absolute must for anyone working in the helping professions.”
—Jenny Florence, Accredited Counsellor, BACP, UKRC and #1 Best selling Author of 7 Steps to Spiritual Empathy and Mindfulness Meets Emotional Awareness.
“Practical insights and strategies to deal with the stress...”
“This is the book I wish I’d had at the beginning of my career as a clinical psychologist! Combining relatable personal examples with her decades of professional experience, Ellen offers practical insights and strategies to deal with the stress and burnout that too often goes hand-in-hand with being a helping professional.
She dives deep into self-care practices, going beyond bubble baths and the common things we think about with self-care. Ultimately, she offers a way to relate more compassionately with ourselves, which leads to more resilience for us and better outcomes for those we serve.”
Barbara Markway, Ph.D., Psychologist & Author
“An organized and thorough road map”
“There is no doubt in my mind that Ellen Rondina’s new e-book will become an important tool for first responders and professionals offering trauma informed care. She offers all helping professionals a clear and in-depth way to explore their own self care needs by identifying five pillars of self care. Rondina makes it clear that we as providers are responsible for doing this work, however, her book provides us with an organized and thorough road map. The workbook style affords the professional the opportunity to explore their truth, their values, and their obstacles. It is brilliantly written and deeply satisfying and supportive for those who give so much of themselves to their community.”
—Ann C. Bliss, LCMHC. Private Practice. Owner/Director of The Center for Trauma Intervention
