About IAN ROSSAT Dynamics - Autogenic Training
Autogenic Therapist and Member of the British Autogenic Society
Ian Ross graduated in medicine (MB.ChB.) in 1970, and worked as a junior doctor in Glasgow, Dunfermline, Edinburgh and Haddington. He then undertook General Practice training with Dr W. Gordon Batters and partners in a Leith practice, before joining a group practice in Preston, Lancashire for a few years.
During the 2000s, he was for several years a member of the Education & Training Team (ETT) of the British Autogenic Society, thus becoming involved in the teaching of students for the Diploma in Autogenic Therapy; this was a very fulfilling experience.
Around this time his (now) late wife Maggie became increasingly ill with Alzheimer’s disease, and as a result he resigned from the ETT so as to be with her more of the time at their home in Gullane, East Lothian. Her condition subsequently deteriorated, and she had some spells in care / hospital. However, thanks to wonderful support from a local nursing and home-care team, she was back at home for the last thirty two months of her life, where she died peacefully.
About four years ago, Ian Ross met Bernie Rowen when they were both attending a Jungian workshop, and they are now very happily married.
Over the last few years Ian Ross has developed a particular interest in the interface between Autogenic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Visualisation techniques, Meditative type practices and neuro-science.
As a result of administrative changes at the practice during 2017, NHS Lothian no longer allows the Group AT courses to be run at the surgery. However, two further courses were run in Leith in the Spring and Autumn of 2018 in Leith, close to the Rose Garden Medical Centre.
Spring 2019: Two Group Course were run in early and late spring in North Berwick, East Lothian, at the Barefoot Sanctuary.
2020: Further Group Courses are planned for 2020 in North Berwick / East Lothian.
Ian Ross also teaches AT on a one to one basis from his home in East Lothian.
