Useful Links and Information

As well as listing websites which are useful, I have an ever expanding library of books in my therapy room which I will lend out to clients.  Over the coming weeks, I will list these books here with the links to Amazon so you can see a bit more about them, and read any reviews they may have.

If you know of a wonderful book that’s been of great help to you, please do let me know and, if appropriate, I’ll add it to the list, and maybe consider buying it.

Thank you.
