My memories of working at London Lighthouse - 1990-2001 - Part 1 of 2

London Lighthouse, located in Ladbroke Grove, West London, opened in 1988 was the UK’s first major centre for people with HIV/Aids. It offered respite and terminal care on its ‘Residential Unit’. ‘Day care’ services for people with Aids-related dementia, and ‘Drop-in’ services (Advice, information, counselling). All three areas offered a broad range of Complementary Therapies. I was one of the team of Complementary Therapists and I offered Hypnotherapy and Relaxation Therapy. In August 1998, the Residential Unit closed due to the changing ‘climate’ (new combination drug therapies and reduced funding from the Government and Health Authorities) and the reduced need for its services. Today, the building in Ladbroke Grove is called ‘THT-Lighthouse’, having merged with the Terrence Higgins Trust, another HIV/ Aids organisation. It now offers a reduced Drop-in service. There are many stories to be told about this amazing place and the incredibly skilled people who worked there. This is my story….

Confessions of a 16th Century French-Catalan Monk

Notre Dame de Corbiac is a 13th Century (former) monastery located in the French-Catalan Pyrenees. It is now our home and is undergoing some renovation work. This is an interview between me (Robert Boylan) and an imaginary monk, Br Sebastian, who could have been a resident of Corbiac, telling its documented history. It was done using the ‘Historiovision’, a (still being perfected!) machine that can bring the past into the present..and brings history to life.
