Talk & Listen Sessions


I'm at the very start of the process of compiling a list of books that I've personally found to be top of their league for their particular subject matter. I will be adding more books in due course and will favour books suitable for personal self-reflective therapy and bibliotherapy.



Psychotherapy/ Counselling





Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

A cognitive psychology based book that describes the mind as working on two levels: an easy quick and reactive way and a slower way that takes a lot more effort. It's a really well written book and, perhaps a little heavy and complex in parts, but overall not too difficult to follow. It did take me a long time to finish it though!


The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk

A truly exceptional book, so well written and hugely insightful covering groundbreaking progress over the past three decades in dealing with early trauma. This is mainly from a psychiatric point of view but the author's work is mostly non-medical based. The author is a genuine authority on the subject and the content is inspirational. Despite the heavy topic it's not a complex book to read. This book was recommended to me as suitable for bibliotherapy by a clinical psychologist who did some psychotherapy with me. It turned out to be an excellent choice as the insight is phenomenal and I am reflecting some of this in my blog.
