About the Editor(s)

Jonathan Burke first trained in social work and later became a hospital administrator before moving to London where he took up a post as a health planning consultant to UK hospitals and ministries of health abroad.

He is the author of the Enfield Cancer Directory, funded by Macmillan Cancer Relief, and for six years he managed the Cancer Life project on behalf of Enfield Disability Action before training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. He has facilitated a range of seminars on cancer related issues, most recently helping develop the “Topic of Cancer” Seminar Series at the London Centre for Psychotherapy. He now works as a psychotherapist in private practice.
