Nigel has had a varied and colorful career which spans all the way from a brief episode as a busker in the eighties, to over two decades working as a clinical psychologist, and more recently as an author and documentary maker. In his clinical career he worked in sex offender treatment programmes, schools, alcohol and drug treatment programmes, prisons, and with many thousands of families. He also consulted with the police, child youth and family, and the prison service. In more recent years he’s written books on both parenting and his work as a forensic psychologist which have now been published in nineteen countries. His television career has included documentaries on subjects ranging from parenting, to inequality, sugar, alcohol, antarctic science, and blowing stuff up.
