My favourite resources: April – June 2023

My favourite resources: April – June 2023

This quarter (SO wild to realise that we’re halfway through 2023 already!) I’ve quite busy consuming resources and research that I’ve found fascinating and inspiring both in the work I do as a psychotherapist, but also in my own personal world.  Here’s a brief round-up with a reminder of why I share this summary every three months:

This is central to the purpose of this blog: I really want it to be a useful space where people can find all sorts of therapeutically relevant information, mixed up with a good dollop of personal reflections and ramblings with a sprinkling of humour for good measure.  I also want it to be a place where you can find links to all the resources that I share with clients, things that I think have strong therapeutic merit or that are innovative and really want people to see.  It also gives you an insight into me, what I believe in, how I practice, and I hope it helps to provide some tangible illustrations of my core values: authenticity, curiosity, integrity, openness, and respect.

Therapy isn’t just about what happens in session.  I’m all about being creative with therapy – that’s what the whole ‘therapy. done differently’ is about.  I believe that therapy can also come in the form of blogs, podcasts, books and conversations with other people who are important to your healing.

This is the last week of the quarter and I’m again sharing some of my favourite blogs, websites, books, apps etc. with you all – these are the things I’ve been devouring – would love to hear what you think of them.

Podcasts / YouTube interviews:

If you’ve spent even five minutes talking to me in the last few months, you’ll have been subjected to me on my soapbox about the Imperfects podcast (I am literally obsessed) so no surprises that my podcast recommendations are full of Imperfects episodes.  If you’ve never hear of this podcast it’s trio of three chaps (Hugh van Cuylenburg from The Resilience Project, Ryan Shelton from his Mum and Josh van Cuylenburg from Hugh’s Mum) who vulnerably and openly talk about all sorts of mental health-related topics.  They are all just great but these are few of my personal fave’s:


It’s still fairly academic reading for me so if I haven’t been reading for research it’s mostly been novels to help switch my brain off:

  • Every Memory Deserves Respect: EMDR, the proven trauma therapy with the power to heal – Michael Baldwin & Deborah Korn
  • How to be hopeful: Your toolkit to discovery hope and help create a more compassionate world – Bernadette Russell
  • Higher Sobriety: my years without booze – Jill Stark
  • Lessons in Chemistry – Bonnie Garmus


  • Duolingo – my commitment to French practice has continued but I’ve now added learning Japanese to my language-project! So far I’ve learned water, rice, please and green tea!  Feel like there’s a way to go yet 😉

Lastly, I added this list at the end of the last blog of last year as it was a timely reminder of the support services that are available 24/7 and I think it’s something I’m going to keep reminding people about – because therapy isn’t for everyone, it’s not available 24/7 and our challenges don’t always fit neatly into our therapy sessions (if we do therapy):

  • Lifeline – 13 11 14
  • Kids Helpline – 1800 55 18 00
