Book | Reading List for your personal, emotional and spiritual growth |

A reading list for your creative, emotional and spiritual growth.

The right thought point at the right time can make all the difference, don't you agree?

Often I am asked what books I recommend for my clients. From time to time I will send specific titles to the people I am working with as part of our work together or recommend that they dive into a particular author's work. Some of these titles on the reading list below have certainly helped me over the years and may be interesting to you now or in the future when it's time for you to explore some of these ideas. Do let me know what resonates with you, or what you are enjoying just now. It's always great to get a personal recommendation of writing that has made a difference to your experience.
