Linda Sage's A to Z of Emotional Well Being & Resilence
In 2005 Linda threw off her corporate ties with her emotional, physical and psychological burnout. As an eminent criminal psychologist, she had been working in most of the famous prisons in the UK. With many of the most notorious prisoners in recent history.
Burnout Took Its Toll
In this major burnout, Linda left her job, sold her house, burnt her corporate suits, also moved countries as well. For 6 years she never spoke about her psychology background, needing to take time to repair and rebuild herself.
In 2011 Linda took a 12-week contract in Saudi Arabia, but she stayed there 6 and a half years. In that time she also started to mentor, train; present keynotes and seminars on the importance of emotional resilience, self-care, and avoiding burnout.
In 2017 Linda returned to England with a plan to finally launch her own company Successful Mindset Ltd. She published Caring for the Caregiver, a proactive book to help people who care about others to learn to care for themselves too. She has been featured in several medical and corporate magazines, CEO Today Magazine and Forbes, as well as becoming a regular broadcaster for ELFM, in Leeds.
Times Are Changing
Now Linda is an award-winning international speaker, trainer, mentor and author. With practical, sustainable systems for enhancing emotional resilience, enabling change and enabling self-care. Her mantra “Self-care is not a luxury, it is a necessity.” Her passion now is to share her knowledge, expertise and strategies with as many people as possible to help them avoid the trauma of burnout.
It took Linda 11 years, 6 months and 17 days to walk into a prison again, but since conquering her own demons, she presents to staff and prisoners the importance of self-accountability and self-care.
Linda is a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) with Toastmasters International and has been a member of the Professional Speakers Association.
