Woman lying on blue sofa on her back with legs over the back of the sofa reading a hardback book. Personal development.

๐Ÿ“š These are great personal development books I have enjoyed and recommend to clients wanting to work on themselves and their relationships between and after sessions. 

๐Ÿ“– The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz. This book is about learning to live based on Grosz’s 25+ years as a psychoanalyst.

๐Ÿ“– Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman. On average we get about 4000 weeks on this planet. This book is an exploration in personal development – how best to use the time we have.

๐Ÿ“– Create Your Own Calm: A Journal for Quieting Anxiety by Meera Lee Patel. A beautiful journal designed to help you explore your inner world with exercises to support you in reducing anxiety and your personal development.

๐Ÿ“– The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did) by Philippa Perry. The title speaks for itself really! Sane and non-judgemental advice.

๐Ÿ“– Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab. This personal development book explores why boundaries are such a necessary element of self-care and how to set (and maintain) healthy boundaries.
