What’s your thing? – Podcast episode – Michael Sclater – curing depression through love
When I moved from Kent to Wales I wanted to do some psychotherapy. A friend in Kent had recommended the CCPE in London where I loved the one day course I did in Archetypes, Alchemy and the Unconscious. At the end of the day I went to see if they had any therapists in Wales and they pulled out a card index box (remember those??). Of all the very many cards, there was only one card for Ireland, Scotland and Wales and on that one card was only one name: it was Michael’s and it turned out he lived a hill away from me.
That was nearly 20 years ago and after my years of therapy with him we became friends and co-thinkers, co-walkers and co-founders of an Innovations Group which ran for a decade.
He is one of the wisest, warmest, most open and interested people I know, so to be able to talk to him about his latest project; a book about curing depression through love, was a delight.
I hope you enjoy our conversation which you can listen to here.
(P.s, if you have friends, or you yourself have a ‘thing’ that inspires and excites, I’d love to hear from you.)
