Book Therapy

counsellor and author. Passionate about literature, psychology, life and mental health she launched Book Therapy as a form of non-conventional therapy and personal coaching.

Bijal is a top writer on Medium for the category ‘Reading’ and ‘Poetry’. Bijal is also the author and publisher of The Happiness Mindset under the pen name Brandon Stanberg. The book details 12 life strategies, designed to make you happier and more successful.

Our concept is based around the simple idea that ‘reading heals’ and specifically prescribed reading can make us more self-aware, informed, happier and resilient. Reading to heal is an age-old, timeless form of therapy, prevalent since the beginning of written verse. Reading is therapeutic and it allows us to connect with other characters (fictional or non-fictional) who face similar issues. By connecting with them we feel understood – our plight has been acknowledged and we are not alone in how we are feeling. Instead, we are guided and inspired by how others deal with these issues. Our conscious and sub-conscious mind escapes into a form of meditation that can not only be therapeutic, but also relaxing and entertaining, offering respite from the daily stresses of modern life.
