Bibliotherapy: Books to help you through life’s ups and downs

24 January 2014

The Counselling Service and the Library Services team have set up a scheme to help you find self-help books that can empower and guide you when dealing with emotional difficulties.

Through our new Bibilotherapy scheme, you'll be able to find a range of books to help you deal with any emotional issues you face, such as

  • anxiety
  • mild depression
  • bereavement
  • homesickness
  • relationship problems
  • fear of failure

What books are available?

Have a look at our list of recommended books.

You can find the books through Library Search or at our Marylebone Library – just borrow them in the usual way. They are also readily available to buy online or in bookshops.

Prefer to talk to someone confidentially?

If you'd like to get advice on problems you're facing, get in touch with our Counselling Service to organise a confidential counselling session with a professional trained counsellor.
