He was also Research Fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital in the USA and Institute of Neurology at Queens Square. His training in psychiatry since leaving UCH medical school in1986 was entirely at the Institute of Psychiatry and the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals.

In 2004 he was appointed Visiting Professor for Public Understanding of Psychiatry at Gresham College, and he was asked by the Royal College of Psychiatrists to edit its first book aimed at educating the public on psychology and psychiatry. 'The Mind: A Users Guide’ was published in 2007 and reached the top ten best-seller list. All of his 5 previous books have been top ten best-sellers.

His writing is in several established textbooks, including the Oxford Companion to the Mind and he has contributed a chapter in the latest comprehensive textbook of psychiatry for trainees: Psychiatry – An Evidence Based Text.

Recently he was elected Fellow of University College London and the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He is patron or supporter of numerous mental health charities including OCD-UK, The Manic Depression Fellowship, Association of Post-Natal Illness, Childline, Action Aid and The Samaritans.

The Independent on Sunday Newspaper conducted a poll amongst members of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Institute of Psychiatry to discover who were the top ten psychiatrists in the UK as rated by fellow psychiatrists.

    It was nice to catch up with Nicola martin and Phil Pearl - thank you for organising great talks by great minds. It was very nice to meet Windy Dryden - thank you Nicola for introducing me. Nicola idea from that lady Jessie - may be a talk about attachment therapy with CBT- I remember Sir Richard Bowlby - the son of the Attachment theorist john Bowlby, having a lot of good things to say about his fathers work and the latest research. Just a thought! Thank you to RAJ PASAUD for the interesting and thought provoking talk.

    I think that therapists are often 'sniffy' about the entertainment industry becuase they tend to earn so much more than we do!!
