Stephen Russell-Lacy

“I have tried to combine 3 things in my working life.

First there is my profession of clinical psychology which I practised full time for 30 years after qualification. I worked within the British National Health Service as a psychological therapist with adults who were experiencing emotional distress and disturbance. I managed a team of psychologists and counsellors. I trained doctoral students from the University of Birmingham.

Second is my study and involvement in the fields of transpersonal psychology and the psychology of religion.

And third is my activity exploring and teaching the psycho-spiritual system of ideas of philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg.”
