Counselling Students Book List

Book lovers know that when reading a good book we are not only educated and entertained but we can ride a wave of emotions, leaving us feeling fulfilled long after we have put down our book or closed our kindle.

When we read, we hope to gain so much more than just information. Books can challenge our thoughts, enable us to reach new realisations and evoke an array of feelings.

For the last few weeks The Counsellors Cafe have compiled a 'Student Counsellors Book List' using recommendations from the counselling community. Many of which are educational in content, but in the most part they are books which have inspired and supported us in our journey as counsellors. Furthering our passion and dedication to our vocation.
