Fiction is history that might have happened. History is fiction that did happen.

Andre Gide

Introduction to my Blog

My writing is based on conversations I’ve had with myself and other people over the last twenty years or so whilst becoming and practicing as a Nietzschean Psychotherapist. I write using a semi-fictional creative writing style as I find it more engaging than conventional case studies.

Case studies are rhetorical devices designed to demonstrate competency and promote ideas and theories; they present as though there are a set of verifiable facts that if laid out systematically will result in a relatively unbiased conclusion. For this reason they are not the best genre for a Nietzschean.

I prefer to present truths as butterflies; light and fleeting, a sudden change of direction, occasionally one lands here or there, or they might pass you by completely, and once they have flown off all that is left is the impression of having seen a butterfly.

Inner Voices

A very short story about a man, a stranger and a herd of goats on a hill-side discussing internal voices, exorcism, angels, demons, multiplicity, integration, healing, listening, the self, the Bible, walking and amongst other things, animal husbandry.

I practice as a Nietzschean Psychotherapist and am fully accredited as a psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy. I see people online or in person in Cambridge and in Angel Islington, London. I work with individuals, couples and in groups. I offer executive and leadership coaching to people in business, science and tech, law, the arts, academia and from voluntary and religious organisations. I’m also a clinical supervisor and trainer.
