Also media investor in film production

A senior investor in forthcoming film ‘Mad to be Normal'– showing in 2017 – which is telling the story of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing and his unique community at
Kingsley Hall, East London, during the 1960's.

Writer-director Robert Mullan hopes to shoot ‘Mad to be Normal' in the first quarter of 2016 in Cologne and on location in London.

Starring David Tennant as RD Laing.

In my teenage years – I formed a group/band playing rock and pop music – resident band in Bournemouth Town Centre – including for the annual dance of the Bournemouth Echo.

I’ve noticed many benefits in development from such music – and changes of awareness and inner states in particular with classical music. A difference in actually playing it – whilst of course listening is beneficial – but even more so writing one’s own music – creating one’s own song. Similar with creating one's own art and the writing of poetry.

Much later my interests moved into other therapeutic forms – covering meditation, yoga, tai chi, development in groups, the world of therapies that included early developmental processes (specialising in attachment) and general forms of counselling and psychotherapy – with a focus on working with trauma.

Some of the problems that were covered in my client work (before I retired)

I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with self assertion, self esteem, knowing who you are, relationships, anxiety states, and such states that might include obsessive compulsive behaviours (OCD), panic attacks, agoraphobia and phobias. I have worked with addictions, loss and depression, stress and trauma (overwhelming experiences that go beyond the realm of stress). I have also worked with borderline personality disorder and dissociative states ~ though in some instances this usually requires a more structured approach to the therapeutic provision.

As well as this, I am concerned with the various and very important issues of not knowing where one's path is in life and so on ~ which can often have a bearing in relation to some of the symptoms already described.
