Nick Duffell

Nick Duffell studied Sanskrit before becoming a carpenter; after a breakdown, he re-trained as psychotherapist. He has led men's groups since 1987 and co-founded the Centre for Gender Psychology in 1996. He now calls himself a psychohistorian, promoting a depth-psychology perspective of issues that affect public life very deeply, like identity and emotions, fear and vulnerability. He is an Hon. Research Associate at UCL on a VR experiment for healing broken attachments and lives between London and the wilds of SW France, where he saws and plants trees. Recently publishing articles on menswork and The Simpol Solution: A New Way to Think about Solving the World's Biggest Problems, with John Bunzl, Nick is best known for The Making of Them: the British Attitude to Children and the Boarding School System, Sex, Love and the Dangers of Intimacy, and Wounded Leaders.
