Reading has been great in helping me to get a better understanding of anxiety and depression, how to live with them and all the baggage that they bring.
In my quest for knowledge, I have collected books that cover an array of subjects including neuroscience, natural therapies, addiction and stories of individual journeys and experiences.
There are literally millions of ‘self-help’ books, and it can be quite daunting trying to decide which books to read. My collection grew from a number of sources, including a local bookshop (Bookcase on Chiswick High Road – Brilliant for offering discounted books on all kinds of subjects), recommendations from friends, recommendations from other books, charity shops, and sometimes books just seemed to find me.
I thought I would share the titles of the books I have read and found helpful or interesting so you have a place to start if you need it.
This is by no means a definitive list, so you may find other books that you prefer, or not like one of the books I recommend at all.
Each image is a link to Amazon, so if you are interested in a specific title, you can follow the link to purchase it from the Amazon Website; the only reason I mention this is because by doing this I will receive a very small fee.
This is one way that I am trying to earn some money, and at the moment every penny counts. If you do purchase a book via one of the links, then thank you, thank you, thank you……
Looking for an inspiring read…. This is it. My best friend who lives in Cape Town knows Chris well, and when I started to struggle with anxiety and depression he had a friend bring this book over from South Africa for me. Chris is a big wave surfer and adventurer and he has some very wise words to share, such as “when you panic, don’t panic”.
I still have loads of books to read, and I am adding to my collection all the time; I will add new books to this list as I get through them; in the mean time……
Happy reading and learning.
