I have been running men's groups since 1987 and am a psychotherapist as well as an author and now calls myself a psychohistorian. I am committed to bridging the gap between psychological and political thinking, promoting a depth psychology perspective of issues that affect our public life very deeply such as identity and emotions, fear and vulnerability, but about which political commentators currently lack the means to properly to address. I'm an Honorary Research Associate at University College London working on a VR experiment for healing childhood attachments. I live between London and the wilds of SW France where I saw and care for trees.

My writing includes several cutting-edge articles on Menswork and sexuality, which are making their way to My books include: "The Simpol Solution: A New Way to Think About Solving the World's Biggest Problems", with John Bunzl, Prometheus, 2018; "Wounded Leaders: The Psychohistory of British Elitism and the Entitlement Illusion", Lone Arrow Press, 2014, with Løvendal, H; "Sex, Love and the Dangers of Intimacy", London: HarperCollins Thorsons 2002; and "The Making of Them: The British Attitude to Children and the Boarding School System", London: Lone Arrow Press, 2000. I contributed 'Towards Current Affairs through an Emergent Psychology of the Heart' in "Humanistic Psychology: Current Trends and Future Prospects", Routledge, 2017 and to "The Political Self", Karnac, 2016. I wrote 'Evolutionary Perspectives on Sex and Gender,’ with Løvendal-Duffell, in "Essays on the Theory and Practice of a Psychospiritual Psychology: Volume 1", Eds. Evans, R. & Simpson, S.
