I’m almost fifty years old and to describe myself, I’d point out that I’m a retired psychotherapist living with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. I am a writer, blogger, dabbling artist and someone who believes that living a creative life is good for our health and well-being.
Here, you will find my posts and articles on all of the subjects that matter to me. “

“In addition to my passion for the creative arts, I am a keen environmental conservationist. In fact, my cottage gardens have been, and still are, an ongoing project to provide for, and attract in, wildlife.
My professional background included being a Commissioning Manager for the Chief Executive’s Unit at Suffolk County Council. I have been the Specialist Services Team Leader for Suffolk NHS, a Service Manager for a leading addictions treatment charity, a representative of a major London Local Authority at the Association for London Government, a support worker in the fields of hate crimes and housing and a national Supervisor for operations for companies such as Superdrug, Cleanaway and Thorn EMI. I ran my own private Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision practice for over a decade, here in Suffolk.
I received an award for my work in support of the Student Interns based at US Air Force base at Lakenheath, here in Suffolk, and supported military personnel experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, following return from active service.
I achieved numerous Diplomas in my fields of work and in writing and I have achieved around 80 private training courses as part of my professional accreditation and professional development.
I retired from work, which was my counselling, psychotherapy and clinical supervision practice, in 2019, due to the progression of Parkinson’s and the early impact of Brexit.
Thanks for taking an interest in me and in my site. I hope you enjoy my articles and posts. Please remember to ‘like’, ‘share’ and ‘comment’ on my posts.
Kind regards – Deano.”
