I came here to tell stories. I believe stories have the power to inspire transformation and healing.
I started out at the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol in 1995. I went on to direct programmes for Discovery, National Geographic and Animal Planet among others.
In 2008 I set up Green Lane Films to help change makers get their message out into the world. I directed In Trantition and In Transition 2 for the Transition Network, which have been seen by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Green Lane Films won Best Online Production Company in 2018. My own film, Take Their Love, won two awards including Best Films at the ALIVE International Film Festival 2017.
Green Lane Films has been commissioned by the NHS to make a documentary about Open Dialogue, which is a radical new approach to mental health that developed in Finland. It is this approach that I advocate for at the end of My Beautiful Psychosis.
My first book, My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness was published by Aeon Books in 2020.
It is now available as an AUDIOBOOK. Sign up for a FREE AUDIO SAMPLE.
I am currently on a Book Tour so come along to an event near you and get your signed copy. And if I am not coming to you then let me know where you are and I’ll do my best to organise something!
Most of the year I live in Buenos Aires where I am following my passion for dancing tango and writing my next book, Tango, Camino, Romeo. It is a travel adventure and love quest all wrapped up in a spiritual odyssey.
