Welcome to my website!

I have worked as a clinical psychologist for 19 years in the NHS in England. I am currently writing a book about holistic approaches to mental health. My interest in recovery from psychosis and other difficulties is rooted in my own experiences of psychosis when I was 18 and subsequent recovery journey.  I am interest in helping to create alternative understandings to medical labelling and the heavy handed use of psychiatric drugs, which is the dominant approach today.  I believe everybody can flourish, grow and develop if they get the right support network around them that they are willing to invest in. The web-site will connect you with past articles, interviews and other media I have taken part in. Also it has details of books, magazines, training events and organisations that promote positive approaches to emotional health and recovery.  My work is very much part of a wider emancipatory movement in mental health that includes the hearing voices movement, community development approaches and other self help and holistic health movements.
