Dr Phil Mollon

Dr Phil Mollon

Phil Mollon PhD is a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, with a background profession of clinical psychology. He worked full time in the NHS mental health services for 37 years until his retirement in 2014. The author of twelve books, Dr Mollon has written and lectured widely on trauma, shame, narcissism, Kohut’s self psychology, and energy psychotherapy. Always searching for better ways of helping traumatised people, and finding limitations in purely talk-based psychotherapy, his enquiries led him to EMDR, and then to energy psychology. For the last 20 or more years he has been immersed in exploring the interface of energy psychology and psychoanalysis, to create the approach he calls Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy.

He is the originator of Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy (PEP) and author of number of books on the subject and is a past president of ACEP, the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychotherapy, the international professional organisation for energy psychology. In 2020 he published Pathologies of the Self: Exploring Narcissistic and Borderline States of Mind (Confer Books).
