Dr James Dyson is in great demand internationally within the anthroposophical movement and is currently teaching and facilitating on several professional anthroposophical training courses, spanning a wide range of medical, therapeutic and psychological themes.

After qualifying as a medical doctor in 1975 he worked in general practice and concurrently studied anthroposophic medicine where his practice, which included general medicine and some psychiatry, continued for nearly 25 years.

During his long and varied career as an anthroposophic physician, James has also worked as a visiting doctor in Waldorf Schools and in several schools and residential communities for children and adults with learning disabilities.

Since leaving Park Attwood in 2003, James has furthered his long-standing interest in mental health and developmental psychology with formal postgraduate training, gaining a master’s degree in Psychosynthesis Psychology.

Having retired from formal medical practice in 2014, James continues to work in an advisory and consultative capacity for several educational facilities and is also extending his life-long involvement in adult education.

Please make every effort to attend what will be an enlivening and enriching talk which will touch the heart of our work here at the Iona School.
