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.
