Ever wonder what your therapist is reading?
Wonder no more! I have collected all of my favourite books about personal growth, self-discovery, living brave, loving hard, emotional resilience and coping with life's challenges.
Please note that these books can aid you in growth and self-care, but they are not a replacement for therapy.
Links in my bookshelf are affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I receive a commission if you decide to make a purchase through one of these links.
All books that I post here I have read myself, and fully endorse.
