Resources and Further Help

Below are some books that I am personally recommending as wonderful resources to assist in healing yourself or your relationship.

These resources can enhance your counselling, or can be read separately if you don't yet feel quite ready to attend counselling. Taking steps to look after yourself, and find clarity will start to help you to feel better, and feel as though you are taking back control over your life.

Is Love Enough?

Are you in a toxic or unhappy relationship? Is love enough to stay in a relationship in which you feel this way? Do you feel anger and resentment towards your partner most of the time? In this book you will get a sense of sharing an experience with other women who totally understand how you feel and the choices you have made so far. You will gain knowledge on the difference between healthy and toxic love, and learn ways to improve the relationship you are in.
