The Therapist’s Bookshelf

Clients often ask me to recommend books for further reading on a particular issue.

Here in The Therapist's Bookshelf, you will find some favourites by authors who are true experts in their field. I use many of these books as references when I am writing Insights, so you can be assured of topical, enduring relevance. Let me know what you think of a particular book and why it is relevant in your own search for meaning.
