Self-help and other resources

We offer a range of self-help books through our library. There are also many good online resources and external organisations that can offer support at little to no cost.

Self-help may be as simple as thinking about and identifying the issues that are blocking you from moving forward. It may be just talking the issue through with somebody you trust – a friend, a family member, a tutor or religious leader.

The self-help resources we can provide are useful in helping you understand the issues you are dealing with, which is in turn a useful step in dealing with them. They may provide a solution in themselves; they may raise questions you'd like to explore with your therapist, or they may supplement other forms of help you receive.
