Self-help books can be very beneficial to your personal development. Books can be used independently, or in addition to group, couples or individual therapeutic work.

In a consultation with one of our bibliotherapists, you'll explore your relationship with books so far and your personal development needs. You will be guided to books that can put their finger on feelings that you may often have had but perhaps never understood so clearly before; books that open new horizons, and inspire you to explore or even transform your way of being in the world.

In this section, you can find our book recommendations. This page may contain affiliate links.
