Jessica Ward


As a political scientist, I was most interested in studying the behaviour of people and its interplay with social structures. My experience living on a self-organised collective farm taught me about the impact of social norms on our life. Patterns learned over life stand in the way of a free, open, honest contact.

I came to Radical Therapy (RT) and learned to change restricting patterns and strategies. Ever since, I've been enthusiastically practicing and spreading RT, using elements of it in my process facilitation. I am also training as systemic therapist (GST).
