I retired early this year from twenty years in NHS psychiatry, mostly community psychiatry for people with learning disabilities in the Avon area. Over the last few years I have become interested in the theory and practice of ecopsychologies and ecotherapies - how nature in its many forms can be a resource for mental health - for example keeping nature in mind in the psychotherapies, horticulture therapies, animal assisted therapies, and mindfulness practices in nature. I have explored these as part of strategies for mood regulation, and managing challenging behaviour amongst other indications. Since retiring I have been studying sustainability and permaculture and linking this to my earlier work and I am happy to contribute what I can to this network.
