This section is new as from March 2021 so will grow over time. I have decided to add this because both my clients and I have found books that have helped them through their troubles....... I am only including in this section books that I have then read myself so I am happy and sure of the content.... enjoy, I hope you find it useful.
'5 types of people who can ruin your life': Identifying and dealing with narcissists, sociopaths, and other high-conflict personalities' by Bill Eddy
This book can help you not only understand high conflict personalities but can also give you guidance and tips of how to negotiate with people of this nature. It can also give you safe advice on how to leave these relationships if that is the process you wish to follow. Very readable.
2. 'Outgrowing the pain' by Eliana Gil
If you ignore the fact that this book has a very eerie cover it is actually a very straightforward and structured read for, and about, adults abused as children (physical, emotional or sexual). It has simplistic (some might say patronising) layout with some cartoons but that aside it is based on solid facts and suggestions about areas such as coming to terms with the abuse and ways to cope and move forwards.
3. 'Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder' by Shari Manning
This book should really be called 'Communicating with someone who has
Borderline Personality Disorder'. It is amazingly compassionate about those
who suffer from this heartbreaking, and sometimes emotionally exhausting
personality condition. It also sets out very clear help & guidance for partners,
friends, siblings, work colleagues etc who may have to learn to navigate what
can be a confusing relationship. I could not recommend it more.
