On this page you will find some book recommendations organised in several categories. The categories represent the most frequent type of conditions I see in clients and get frequent questions about. I often recommend these books to psychotherapy clients which has proven to be useful to them.

I will add categories as they come to mind. For instance, I am in the process of finding good books on personality disorders written for clients. There are some useful books for therapists on this topic, but these tend to be a bit technical for the average reader.

If you have some book suggestions that you think will fit well on this page, please drop me a note.

Small Disclaimer – The image links are to amazon where I get a small referral fee if a book is purchased. Every little bit helps as they say.
