Explore season two of our podcast series for adult listeners designed to offer relaxation, self-care and comfort through the healing power of stories.

Join practicing bibliotherapist Dr Susan McLaine each week as she reads selected stories and poems that will stimulate reflection on our personal responses to change, and encourage flexibility.

For more than 12 years Susan has researched, written and spoken about the ancient practice of bibliotherapy in Australia and internationally. Let Susan guide you through a weekly practice in this easy to follow podcast.
