John qualified as a social worker in 1988. His background in social work has largely been in adult mental health. However, he qualified with an MSc in systemic psychotherapy in 2000, and has worked with a wide range of service users since.
He continues to run a private practice; is a specialist lay member sitting for the Mental Health Review Tribunal service; and works as a systemic psychotherapist in a community psychology department in adult mental health.
He has a particular interest in the effects of childhood trauma on both mental health and relationships. John has been delivering training in systemic theory and practice for many years across the United Kingdom. This has largely delivered to professionals working in children’s services.
