PUBLISHED ARTICLES
I have written a number of chapters, articles and papers, nearly all have been published; though some are still in the process of being published, a few are unpublished, some are also being revised & updated, and some are available only on the Internet.
These writings are on a number of various topics associated with Body-Psychotherapy, Psychotherapy & Counselling, Transpersonal Psychotherapy & Spiritual Crises, Technical Papers, and also some other related 'stuff'.
Most of these articles are available for people to download and read only as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. If you want to reference them, then the very small numbers, in red, like
(30), refer to the publishing details, which are all given in the box at the bottom of the page.
These articles and papers may be quoted from and referenced according to usual publishing conventions (APA rules). 
Please do not distribute these downloads. They are not freebies. They may not be: re-published; sent to other people; extensively quoted from; multiple-copied; or used in any other way ... without the author's specific permission (often forthcoming, but I'd still like to be asked, as some versions are also copyrighted by the relevant journal as well). 
Anyway, enjoy reading my 'stuff'!
