I think I have a really bad fear of intimacy. Been working on it but could do with more books or guidance.

I think I have an issue with intimacy, a fear of intimacy. Examples:
- Colleagues who are friendly i.e. give me attention, I tend to pull away
- Friends who get to close, I sometimes push away
Self diagnosis indicates a fear of intimacy (maybe something else?) and I'd love to get some recommendations for books with regards to the topic.
I'm not looking for therapy, but if you do know therapists in London, UK, I'm all ears, I may be able to afford a few sessions.
