Biography

In 1991 the Fellowship funded my travel to Washington and Canberra to undertake research into the relationship between the United States and Great Britain during the Cold War period, using Australia and New Zealand as a lens to examine the reality of that 'special' relationship. My focus shifted from strategic studies to personal histories when I began an MA in psychoanalytic theory. This led to a change of career and now I work as a Lacanian psychoanalyst in Cambridge. My earlier studies, part-funded by the Fellowship, illuminated for me the potential impact of individuals on the course of history. I became interested in the people involved in the decision-making. This also led me to recognise that my own personal history was implicated in decisions I had made up to that point, hence my change of direction towards psychoanalysis. During the course of my work as a psychoanalyst, I have had particular interests in how we might be able to work better with different forms of psychosis, substance addiction, anorexia and more recently how to get young people talking about their problems, particularly young men.
