The Wellbeing Bookshop

As a writer, author, podcaster and positive psychology coach helping women to overcome their overwhelm and feel calm, in control, confident they can cope and, ultimately, happier, I have read a LOT of books on and around these subjects.

Books that help you to understand your true nature, to like yourself more, to inspire, uplift and educate you.

Below are some of the best self-development and wellbeing books I've read and recommend.

By clicking on a book cover you will be taken to my corner of where you can purchase the book and I will receive a small commission. fees support independent bookstores and booksellers and your support is much appreciated.

My own book, The 1% Wellness Experiment, is available to pre-order now.
