The Three Men with a Blog project ran from 2019 to 2022.
As the home page said, "Three therapists who sat in a pub talking about their thoughts on counselling, psychotherapy and the human condition decided to make their ramblings a little more public ..."
Based in Bristol and Cambridge, UK, the therapists between them had professional interests in the areas of anger management, addictions, couples work, coaching, sex therapy and supervision; in addition, at that time they drew on the experience of more than 173 years of life on Earth.
Some of Duncan's writings from the project are now re-published on the Therapy Place Blog.
