How love can cure depression

A conversation with a sufi psychotherapist ...

Like Comment

When I moved from Kent to Wales I wanted to do some psychotherapy.  A friend in Kent had recommended the CCPE in London where I loved the one day course I did in Archetypes, Alchemy and the Unconscious.  At the end of the day I went to see if they had any therapists in Wales and they pulled out a card index box (remember those??).  Of all the very many cards, there was only one card for Ireland, Scotland and Wales and on that one card was only one name: it was Michael's and it turned out he lived a hill away from me.

That was nearly 20 years ago and after my years of therapy with him we became friends and co-thinkers, co-walkers and co-founders of an Innovations Group which ran for a decade.

He is one of the wisest, warmest, most open and interested people I know, so to be able to talk to him about his latest project; a book about curing depression through love, was a delight.

I hope you enjoy our conversation which you can listen to here.

Take care.

Regenerative living coach, author, podcaster, facilitator, educator, Dr

Business as usual is no longer possible.  We need to dramatically shift how we think and live in order that the planet and all those people we share it with as well as our children's children, flourish.  This is the time of the Great Turning (Joanna Macy) and each of us can play our part in tipping life towards health and well-being for all.

Finding your thing or things can be the most radical thing you can do for your own well-being and for the well-being of the planet.

Work with me to create a life where your energy, health, social connection and emotional and social well-being are not just sustained, but improve, regeneratively. 

I am an author, educator and researcher who coaches individuals and organisations to find more regenerative ways of living and working in order to support the health of all peoples, the more than human world and future generations.

My work is based on wisdom from indigenous people, science, and my own direct relationship with people and the more than human world which have taught me about the interconnectedness of all things, and our dependency on each other for well-being.

There are more things to measure than income and status so let's start creating the world we want our grandchildren to live in.  It starts here and it starts now with each of us, daily.
