I was an alumnus at the famed AntiUniversity of London (1968-1969), and pioneer of the alternative psychiatry movement in that era and later. I worked and studied with the existential psycho-analyst R.D.Laing, and was a founder-member of the Arbours Association (London), which provides alternative care for persons diagnosed with severe mental illness.
I am also the foremost exponent of Charlotte M. Bach's ground-breaking theories of emergent evolution, and I published an account of her work in "A Bolt From the Bleeding Sky" (Dielectric Publications, London, 1984). I continue to work as a psychiatrist and as a researcher into holistic methods of facilitating social change. This includes facilitation and training sponsored by the organisation Community Building in Britain - which continues to develop and disseminate the work of the holistic psychiatrist M. Scott Peck.
In addition to this I am involved in an exploratory research group seeking to fuse poetic, practical and fantastical modes of action to create significant cultural/political interventions in the here and now.
