I’m Phil Faulkner. I’m the Director of Thornby Hall therapeutic community in Northamptonshire, where I have worked for 21 years. I was one of the first members of staff, in 2000, to complete the groundbreaking PGDip course in ‘The Practice and Psychodynamics of Residential Care’ (now Psychosocial Care) brought about by a collaboration between Peper Harow, The Tavi and Middlesex University. I am a member of the APPCIOS Management Committee and also of the BPC. I am due to leave Thornby Hall in August to work as a free lance Organisational Consultant and Psychodynamic Counsellor.
