Also follow me on:

I retired from my role of Consultant Clinical Psychologist in 2013 and am now a freelance writer. Based in the United Kingdom, I worked in the National Health Service as a mental health professional for 33 years. My areas of expertise include psychological interventions for severe/complex mental health problems (psychosis, depression, emotionally unstable personality disorder) and the promotion of recovery approaches within the psychiatric system.

As my my career progressed, I became increasingly disillusioned with western psychiatric services, and much of my writing reflects this discontent.

My interests away from work include football (I am a life-long Burnley supporter), music (Leonard Cohen is one of my heroes) and, increasingly, writing both non-fiction and fiction.
