After completing an M.A. in Ancient Classics at University College Cork, Jim came to live in London, initially to do research for a Ph.D. in Byzantine Greek. He worked for some years in Administration in University College London, before becoming a Primary School teacher in inner London schools.
With many years of Jungian Analysis behind him, he decided to retrain as an analyst at the C.G. Jung institute in Zurich. Returning to London, he began practice as an analyst, joining GAP in its early days, and also IGAP. He has previously served as a Trustee for GAP and as a Chair for the C.G. Jung Analytical Psychology Club London. Much of Jim’s time has been spent teaching, giving lectures and workshops, and in running reading groups.
