The Wounded Healer
The Wounded Healer is an innovative method of entertainment and teaching that blends the performing arts with psychiatry. The main aims of the Wounded Healer are to engage, enthuse, enthral and to educate to challenge mental health stigma and to encourage care-seeking.
I have been fortunate enough to deliver the Wounded Healer to over 50,000 people in 5 continents in 12 countries throughout the globe. The Wounded Healer has also been integrated into the medical school curriculum of 4 UK universities and, together with filmmakers from the London College of Communication, we adapted The Wounded Healer into a short documentary film. I have been fortunate enough to deliver the Wounded Healer alongside Nobel Prize Laureates, TED speakers and celebrities in prestigious national and international conferences. Audiences report in written feedback (which has been collated and published in peer-reviewed academic journals - see CV tab) that the Wounded Healer is 'inspirational' and 'the best lecture' they have ever attended.
