What I do

I have been a pioneer in Imagework, a self-help method of using inner imagery to understand ourselves and guide our lives, am the Honorary President of the International Imagework Association, and the author of the classic Life Choices, Life Changes, an essential introduction to all aspects of imagery.

I’ve also specialised in burnout, having burnt out myself and understood its underlying message to me, and am the author of The Joy of Burnout , which offers a visionary new approach to burnout as a positive step in a soul journey. More recently, I have done research into fears of the future, where they come from, and how to heal them.

I have taught courses and workshops, and spoken at conferences all over the UK and in almost every major European country including Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany and Greece, as well as in the USA, Russia,Thailand, Cambodia and Japan, and have a presence on UK radio and television.

The Skyros experience

One of the things I am best known for is Skyros Holistic Holidays in Greece, Thailand, and Cuba, which I co-founded in 1979 and still co-direct with Dr.Yannis Andricopoulos. The first alternative holiday centre in Europe, Skyros offers wide-ranging courses in beautiful locations with a unique community atmosphere. A central principle is the creation of “soul community” – a sense of belonging and authenticity such that everyone who comes can immediately feel at home and feel seen and recognised for who they are and who they are becoming.

Skyros quickly became internationally known as a kind of greenhouse for personal and spiritual development, as well as a cultural experiment in a creating a model for a healthy temporary society. It has been the subject of novels, films, short stories, and poems, featured in almost every major UK and European newspaper and magazine, and it started a trend in alternative and holistic holidays that spread throughout the world.  It has also been the starting point of life change, career change, geographical change, not to mention lots of marriages and new babies for thousands of the participants who have shared the Skyros experience.

And now

These days, I mostly write, coach individual clients looking for life change, teach courses in the UK and abroad, and keep looking for new ways to help myself and others live truthfully and joyfully, and to follow the whispers of our hearts and souls.  This website is an expression of my commitment to myself last year to find ways to make myself and my insights available to people in ways that go beyond conventional book writing.

I also try to leave time for the actual living!
