Let me introduce myself. My name is Richard Bryant-Jefferies. I am an author of books (non-fiction and fiction) on counselling and psychotherapy themes, and self-development. I have had over 20 titles published and numerous chapters in books edited by other professionals.


I also have experience of working in the NHS as a manager and healthcare professional, working in addictions and in management roles. Since 2006 until early 2014 I was Head of Equalities and Diversity at Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust in London.
