Description

Daniel O'Beeve wakes up to find he has been put together very badly by life. He is like a jumper, knitted from wool and string and wire and chain, with too many sleeves, and no neck hole. He's a mess. But the challenge now is how to rewrite the story of his childhood and youth so that he can put himself back together in a saner, calmer, more socially and emotionally competent manner; so he can enjoy what is left of his life.show more

About Dr Daniel O'Beeve

Dr Daniel O'Beeve (not his real name) is a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, working in Paris, France. He was born in Ireland, in the summer of 1946, and moved to England at the age of eighteen years. He studied economics and politics at the University of Oxford, before moving to Bangladesh to work in the field of economic and technological development. From there he moved to Thailand, and then back to England, where he had a kind of breakdown, from which he slowly recovered by studying philosophy and psychology, and by becoming a kind of self-styled Zen monk. He met his wife, Athena, in Alton Cross, in Derbyshire, in 1980, and they moved to Paris in the autumn of 1990, when he'd completed his doctoral degree in clinical psychology. He sees clients on a daily basis in Paris, and also writes articles and books. His main area of study is the human mind; but he also has explored the distortions and dysfunctions of the human heart. He teaches the importance of writing one's own autobiography as the royal road to emotional recovery.show more
