Dan is a lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy. He is a practicing group analyst and psychodynamic psychotherapist, and worked for 15 years in the NHS and the independent sector as a consultant psychiatrist. For three years he held the position of Medical Director at a well-established psychotherapeutically-oriented mental health hospital. Since 2007 he has been a regular peer reviewer for the journals ‘The Psychiatrist’ and ‘Advances in Psychiatric Treatment’.
Dan’s field of practice has previously included community and inpatient mental health care, as well as roles within liaison psychiatry and within psychotherapy departments within the NHS, working predominantly with older adults but also working-age adults. He maintains an interest in the psychological impact of living with long-term conditions in addition to working with those with medically-unexplained symptoms. He has developed an interest in working with those with issues related to sexuality and gender and he maintains membership of the sexuality and gender diversity advisory group to the British Psychoanalytic Council, which played an important role in developing the recent NHS England (and other organisational and NHS bodies) joint Memorandum of Understanding against conversion therapies. His other interests include organisational dynamics, consultancy and leadership.
