Praise for Looking After No.1 – The Book…

A course to help you avoid burnout and work at your very best for the kids you serve!

Filled with practical advice & tips, this easy-to-read book will renew your interest in the need for self-care if you are to remain effective in your work.

Jonny has tried & tested the methods over several decades – this is the “What Works”, rather than an idealistic theoretical approach to coping in the long-run & maintaining top-level performance in challenging environments.

This book is all about sustainability in the face of adversity – Read this book, take the advice, & enjoy a long, fulfilled career.

Sometimes we overlook our own well-being when we are immersed in working with children to improve their lives. There are times when practitioners get tired, frustrated or refer to having experienced “burn out” as if this is the norm. Of course this should not be the norm and what Jonny Matthew has done here is give everyone a very easy to read book wth some top tips on how we should be mindful of protecting our own well-being. After all a poorly functioning practitioner is not going to be that helpful to any child.

The strength of this book is the way in which Jonny links in his own experience with an openness and honesty that gives his ideas and tips an authenticity that resonates strongly and leaves you reflecting on your own experience. 

It’s a top read from a top practitioner.
