My life has never been especially conventional and has always been about a search to find the true me. Having been born into a world of privilege and stark conventions my early life was a quest for something else, a place where I would feel more fully at home.My search for truth began in my mid-twenties and led to much travel and subsequent exploration of many different spiritual and psychological approaches to health and healing. What has always been important to me is to have a profession that expresses who I truly am, relationships that are genuine and places to live in that feel harmonious.Much of my early life was spent in Northern California where I did most of my psychological training. For over 40 years, I have had a private psychotherapy practice, trained therapists, lectured and taught workshops and spiritual retreats all over the world.I have an MA in English Literature from Oxford, and a Ph.D in Psychology. I have written two books and over 40 articles for academic journals. While in California, I co-founded the Institute for the Study of Conscious Evolution which taught degree courses. In 1999 I was awarded an Italian knighthood for services to humanity. I currently divide my time between London and Mallorca.
