What is your favourite self-help book? And why? Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert because it gave me a unique perspective on the power of ideas and creativity. It helped shed light on finding inspiration in my day to day life and enabled me to have greater courage and permission to express myself. Reading this book makes the World feel like a magical place to be.

Why did you get involved in Shelf Help? Reading has always been a big part of my life. Self-development books in particular have helped me navigate my personal and professional life. I love the learning and inspiration that is gained from reading these books and enjoy putting the author's tools and ideas to the test. Having searched for a new hobby for a while, I couldn't resist the opportunity to meet like-minded people and spend quality time discussing important life topics.

What can people expect at your meetups? Kindness, compassion and confidentiality will be at the heart of the meetup group's ethos. You can expect to feel at ease, to enjoy like-minded company and to go away with an extra little spring in your step.
