Do you find it hard to say “no” to people? Do you tend to put others first? Do you feel guilty setting boundaries? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, you may be a people pleaser.

People-pleasing is a widespread but misunderstood response to trauma. It can have a huge impact on your mental health, showing up in common psychological conditions including anxiety, co-dependence, and depression. Left unchallenged, people-pleasing habits can lead to chronic discomfort, exhaustion, and resentment.

In Stop People Pleasing, certified life coach Hailey Magee offers an action-based approach to breaking the people-pleasing pattern. Drawing on social science, psychological research, and coaching exercises, Magee gives you the practical tools you need to:

– Understand the origins of your people-pleasing
– Discover your own needs
– Set empowered boundaries
– Courageously advocate for yourself

With fresh insight, heartfelt empathy, and a keen personal understanding of the pitfalls of people-pleasing, Magee will help you to break free from the cycle, overcome your guilt, and reconnect with your own feelings, needs, and aspirations.


Stop People Pleasing is required reading for anyone who's tired of feeling resentful, overwhelmed, and burned out after years of being 'nice.' Brilliantly, Hailey teaches us how to confidently self-advocate without losing our empathy.

Struggle to speak up? Read this book. Feeling resentful? Read this book. Burned out? Read this book. Stop People Pleasing is the definitive guide to taking back your power and getting in the driver's seat of your own life.
KATHERINE MORGAN SCHAFLER, author of The Perfectionist's Guide to Losing Control
Essential reading for anyone who has ever steamrolled their own needs on behalf of others'. Magee shines light on the many ways we abandon ourselves for others only to end up resentful, spent, and stuck in joyless relationships. By demystifying people-pleasing as a pattern of behaviour, Magee offers readers hope by suggesting alternative patterns that begin with recognising and honouring our own needs. A must-read for anyone who's ever said 'yes' when they wanted to say 'no.'
