My favourite resources: January – March 2022
Here’s another reminder about the purpose of this blog: I really want this blog 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.
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:
I’ve been loving getting back to the Feel Better Live More podcast by Dr Rangan Chatterjee – this is really one of my all-time fave’s and I have been loving these recent episodes:
- Interview with Richard Schwartz, creator of Internal Family Systems (IFS) – Dr Chatterjee has done a lot of IFS therapy himself and this episode is really immersive and experiential. It’s almost like you can go through the process yourself as Richard asks the questions of Dr Chatterjee. https://drchatterjee.com/this-therapy-changed-my-life-and-it-could-do-the-same-for-you-internal-family-systems-with-dr-richard-schwartz/
- Interview with Fearne Cotton who is an English presenter and who has been through her fair share of mental health challenges. She’s super open and down-to-earth and has a great podcast of her own. https://drchatterjee.com/fearne-cotton-on-how-to-find-your-happy-place/
- And how can I go past this one – two of my favourite podcasters coming together in the one place! Dr Chatterjee interviewing Prof Andrew Huberman: https://drchatterjee.com/dr-andrew-huberman-the-one-daily-practice-everyone-should-do-training-your-brain-and-reducing-anxiety/
