Healthy Reading: How books can help you improve how you feel.


Books can change lives. Increasingly practitioners have woken up to the fact that books are powerful tools helping people with distress realise they aren’t alone, and can learn from the experiences, successes and failures of others. Written by award winning author Dr Chris  Williams, a Professor of Psychosocial Psychiatry at the University of Glasgow and well known researcher and teacher using the powerful cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach, the books recommended below aim to inform, challenge and help people change.

Professor Williams is the award winning author of the popular Living Life to the Full website, and is President of the lead body for CBT in the UK- the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. With over a million books in print, the book range covers a wide range of topics including mental and physical wellbeing. Linked free courses to accompany the books are available at For more information for Practitioners about our work visit
