When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

They say that messages will come to you when you are ready to receive them, either in the form of quotes, something someone tells you, or through reading something which resonates.  Here are some of my favourite books, which have appeared to me over the years, and which I still refer back to now (along with countless others!)

The self-help genre can be a mixed bag – from the lightening bolt flashes of “Yes, I get it”, to the downright hard going, which can make you feel like even more of a hopeless case than when you started!

I like a book to have a clear, no nonsense but entertaining approach, with practical tips that I can actually follow and get on board with.   And all of these books are just that.  So if you’re looking for some inspirational reads as the nights start to draw in, these are a great place to start!
