Sunday 15th October 2017
I attend a meeting of the Education Division of SGI – a 12 Million strong humanistic lay Buddhist movement. As usual I am inspired by the ‘experiences’: personal testimonies of overcoming hardship and persecutions. I note down the wise words of leader ‘Shinichi Yamamoto’:
‘The true results of education will only become apparent 10 or 20 – no 30, 50, or 100 years later.’
I ponder how the trauma work of Pierre Janet (1917) was brushed aside by vested interests promoting Emil Kraepelin and ‘chemical imbalance’ theorems and how the ‘Discourse of Disbelief’ was shored up by the controversial 1994 report of Jean La Fontaine that was widely read as denying the existence of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA).
I hear that Dyslexia Action went bust. I am not surprised and actually pleased as the organisation was known for mismanagement, excluding from certification the individuals who had completed the Hornsby Dyslexia Diploma and failure to distance itself from retired Hull University lecturer Dr Christopher Singleton who admitted nine counts of accessing indecent images and was given a suspended prison sentence by a judge at Hull Crown Court.

I visit retired Psychology Professor Dave Bartram in Kingston Hospital who is recovering from serious surgery. His partner Pat Lindley also had major surgery not long ago. I suspect their health suffered considerably in the wake of a highly irregular BPS process where a disgruntled company owner was unhappy with the review of his test and – rather than submitting his grievances in the standard procedure – lobbied ‘Trustees’ of the BPS who promptly interfered with the processes of the ‘Psychometric Testing Centre’.
Friday 13th October 2017
I attend the Association for Business Psychology (ABP) where I enjoy key notes by Prof Stephen Reicher on leadership as identify creation and my MSc Industrial Psychology course mate Prof Fiona Patterson on Gender issues. I deliver my paper ‘The Practitioner’s Guide to the Dark Side’ – nobody fainted, quite a few laughs and generally a warm reception on a difficult topic. I explained that my Symposium at the BPS Annual Conference got ‘pulled’ and encourage the audience to express their views on this irregularity to the BPS President.
At dinner I talk with a former colleague about old times, current business but also about the sinister reasons why I left Saville Consulting. He has been made aware of the negative articles in Private Eye and attentively listens to the chilling sequence of events.
In the evening there is an interesting Magic Show that demonstrates how easily people can be fooled. This is followed by a Darth Vader partly where I politely refuse to get a matching ‘tattoo’ as it reminds me of the Satanist ‘Illuminates of Thanateros’ cult of Colin Batley where all members sported an ‘Eye of Horus’ tattoo.
Thursday 12th October 2017
After six years of volunteer activity I attend my last meeting of the BPS Committee on Test Standards. Survey responses to the proposed ‘Diploma in Psychological Testing’ were largely positive – implementation would also revive the ‘Specialist in Test Use’ qualification.
I am pleased to learn from a trauma informed colleague that ‘C-PTSD’ (a term first introduced 1992 by the excellent Janet Herman) will become a diagnostic category in ICD-11 when it is released in 2018:
Wednesday 11th October 2017
I send Chief Constable Mike Veale an email titled ‘Complaint about 7 Officers’ concerning a suspected arson murder that seemingly was perpetrated by an associate of the Ted Heath Abuse Group to cover up ‘Human Sacrifice Murders’ in Kingston-upon-Thames.
I attach a 45 page complaint document that was ignored by local, regional and national authorities including Operation Midland. It contains materials that could potentially lead to nailing a serial killer and even exoneration of ‘Nick’ who reported a fellow pupil was killed by a car ‘hit’ in Kingston-upon-Thames. He is currently facing a persecutory ‘perjury’ accusation that appears to be ‘trumped up’ like the one against extreme abuse survivor Alicia in the Franklin cover-up in Nebraska.
Tuesday 10th October 2017
I upload five abstracts on Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA), torture, trauma, dissociation and healing for a 2018 mental health conference.
Monday 9th October 2017
I attend a BPS meeting where I hear the welcome news that former BPS CEO Ann Colley has retired (one month after the senior manager left who I made a complaint about).
Even better news is that the concerns I expressed about BPS guidelines related to memory are – at last – going to be tackled.
