I spoke to Erwin James at lunchtime today and he is one of the nicest men I’ve had the pleasure to talk to. It was good to hear of the support he received while inside and how Joan Branton, a psychologist, made a huge positive impact on Erwin’s life. Erwin writes for the Guardian and he said to me that he didn’t really choose this path but that it just happened. I said that it was meant to be; his destiny as such. As someone who once worked in a prison Erwin’s story had moved me deeply and inspired me to keep on keeping on in my therapeutic work, even if one gets burned.
