Self Help Information


The use of books for therapeutic purposes is known as 'bibliotherapy'. Self-help books are now being recommended as a means of providing psychological therapy for people experiencing emotional and psychological difficulties.

The effectiveness of bibliotherapy has been well established in clinical trials. Bibliotherapy has been recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) UK as a useful start in treating mild and moderate depression, anxiety and panic and some other mental health problems.
