I believe in sharing resources for personal empowerment, learning and growth. These are some resources that I have found useful for my own personal journey of growth and wellness, and there are ideas in all of these resources that I have utilised to support my clients. I would also love to hear from you if you can recommend additional resources to me! 

These resources may also be your starting point for further personal exploration and reflection - Often we can read or hear something, and feel that its really important for our lives, but we can find it hard to translate those ideas into practice. Accessing psychology services, such as mine, can be helpful to translate inspiration and ideas into action, in a unique, personalised way.
