I am very erratic in how much I update any of those I’m afraid.  Where it’s done for me, rather than by the system’s searching information about it out automatically it is embarrassingly sometimes more up to date than my CV!

Created back in 1995 and long lost off the navigation on the old psyctc.org site, I had a central set of questions through the things was doing and planning to do next. That was:

  • How do we know, or think we know, what we think we do?
  • How and why do we communicate as we do about these things?
  • How and why do we feel, or not feel, about these things?

It is a bit scary to think that 24 years have passed since then but I guess I’m happy that I think that list is still right.  I’ve achieved more on the first and second points than on the third which is interesting to me now.

I’m a medical psychotherapist, that’s to say, a medic who went into psychiatry and specialised in psychotherapy.  From 1986 I worked about half/half clinically and academically but I stopped practising clinically in 2016 and am now only a researcher.  As I’d planned to do since my late teens, I marked that transition with a cycle ride from London to Compostella.  That started the more personal of my three web sites: pelerinage2016.  (The other web site I have maintained since 2015 is the CORE system trust one.)

The CORE system remains one major thread in my research work and I can use that site to address work I’m doing there that doesn’t fit into academic papers.  This site covers all the other work I’m doing, some of which overlaps into CORE but only as CORE is provides an instance or focus for the issues.  The tools I sometimes create are almost all generic and so don’t really belong in the CORE site and, now I can edit this more easily than when it was static HTML, I hope to provide more of them here and more responsively.

Public ruminations and products from all the other aspects of my life will continue to go into the “pelerinage” site if I can ever protect enough time for that!

I am mounting a current CV here (that version file date: 16/10/2020) and will try to renew that fairly regularly.  If you see a publication you think might be of use to you there or in my CV, get in touch with me.
