Books and Further Reading

These are books that I recommend to support your Making Moves journey on different aspects of confidence and self expression.

Reading a book isn’t going to solve your problems. But books are very useful in keeping you motivated whilst you’re participating in the courses, or hitting a few setbacks.

In my darkest hour, I read many self help and personal development books to keep my spirits up. They kept me on track when I was beginning to doubt my abilities.
