I am a psychotherapist. Working as an auxiliary nurse in psychiatry in the 1970s led me to a lifelong study of the human psyche – mind, emotions and spirit – and to an early interest in depth psychology. I worked for many years with people recovering from addictions to drugs and alcohol, and observed the tremendous capacity human beings have for growth and for life, whatever circumstances they have come from, especially when the truth of their history and feelings is honoured and explored in a safe way. There are undoubtedly many ways to do this, but I found that psychotherapy provides a place where this can happen, and that healing is possible.
