Profile Information

Tell us about yourself - at least 30 words
My work is now in psychotherapy, having been a psychiatrist for many years. My influences are Jung, psychoanalysis, existential (after Irvin Yalom), humanistic, cognitive, Zen, Tao, I Ching, and my training in physical medicine is a kind of basic prism for those other things to pass through. I am a member of my local Serene Reflection Meditation Group in Jersey. I have an interest in and had experience in the Therapeutic Community movement in psychiatry in the 80's. I like old buildings, cooking and gardening and free ranging conversation.
Is your primary interest...

The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation.

There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
