New Harbinger Publications


New Harbinger Publications is an independent, employee-owned publisher of books on psychology, self-help, spirituality, and personal growth. Our evidence-based self-help books and pioneering workbooks help readers make positive changes to improve mental health and well-being. Our professional books serve as powerful resources for mental health clinicians to build their practice and better serve clients. And our spirituality books offer timeless wisdom for living consciously in the modern world. Over the years, we’ve expanded our mission into several new areas of publishing. Through these imprints, we continue to offer books that have the power to change lives.

We acknowledge that actions speak louder than words and are committed to elevating the voices and perspectives of authors who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We are actively seeking submissions from BIPOC authors and professionals working in mental healthcare. Please send queries to our acquisitions team at
