Additional Resources

Recommended books, podcasts and resources that I have found to be useful over time which cover a range of topics. They all have great content and food for thought on a variety of personal development and mental health issues.

Rough Patch has a great selection of books and resources (also great for gifts) at the shop on Parramatta Rd or for online purchases.

As an added bonus, any profit Rough Patch makes goes back into the business to provide further affordable counselling and mental health supports to those who need us. Check the shop out in Leichhardt or online here
