As a life-long bookworm, I’ve long been an advocate for using literature to help people deal with everything from heartbreak to grief. But bibliotherapy sessions aren’t just for people who want to use books as a form of therapy – they’re also for people who want some expert advice on what to read next. As a life-long bookworm, there simply is no before – there has never been a time when I wasn’t a lover of books – and an obsessive one at that. I did my degree in double English, after which I read my way through the BBC Top 100 books, and I’ve spent the last ten years reviewing books on my award-winning book blog, hosting The Bondi Literary Salon, and interviewing authors about the books they’d take with them to a desert island. All of which have equipped me with an innate understanding of what makes readers tick.
WHO IS BIBLIOTHERAPY FOR?
Everyone! I’m a strong believer that literature is beneficial to everyone, regardless of what you hope to get out of it. A bibliotherapy session is also a great gift for the book-lover in your life.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A BIBLIOTHERAPY SESSION?
Before our session, I will send you a questionnaire to find out a bit more about your reading habits, and what you hope to get out of your session with me – and there are no right or wrong answers! Each session lasts one hour.
Bibliotherapy sessions cost £100 for a one hour session with a digital prescription, and £175 for a one hour session and a literary goody bag which includes three carefully curated books and some beautifully bookish treats . Please email me to book your session today.
The bibliotherapy session with Lucy was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had. Lucy’s passion for books is evident, and I loved getting to speak to her about both my reading tastes and her recommendations. The parcel in the post following our session was the icing on the cake!Daniel Lord Doyle
