Here are some of the resources I most often recommend:

I occasionally suggest videos or books to clients as a way to supplement our counselling work. There are so many existing resources! I don’t recommend anything I haven’t read, watched, or accessed myself yet first, so please keep coming back as this list will keep getting longer. If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know, as learning and growing never ends!

Disclaimer: I am sharing these resources as I have found them interesting and useful and invite you to use them for information and entertainment purposes only. These resources are not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, medical treatment, or therapy. Never disregard professional psychological or medical advice nor delay in seeking professional advice or treatment because of something you have read on any website.
