My Beautiful Psychosis is my debut memoir. It is a gritty tale of transformation showing the most extreme experiences a human mind can endure. The story takes place over a series of seven so-called psychotic episodes: through the harsh landscapes of the psychiatric wards but also a pilgrimage, from troubled twenty-something to a respected documentary filmmaker and campaigner for a new perspective on mental health and wellbeing.

My Beautiful Psychosis questions conventional methods of treating psychosis and point towards a radical vision where diagnosis of mental illness makes allowances for spiritual growth and transformation rather than simply treating a perceived brain chemical imbalance. I hope that sharing my story will inspire others, improve attitudes and ultimately contribute to a better system of care.

My Beautiful Psychosis is due for publication by Aeon Books in October 2020.

I don’t have a title for my second book yet but It Takes Two and A Very Small Medium are titles I have been using so far. What I can tell you for definite is that it is another memoir. I set off on a quest to find love: walking the camino to Santiago de Compostella; following my heart to Guatemala; and ending up in Buenos Aires to improve my tango. But it is really a spiritual odyssey: a losing of the way before finding it anew.
