Penny Norris PhD
Diploma in Analytical Psychology, registered IAAP member and registered member of UKCP and IGAP, UK. In London she trained as a Jungian analytical psychologist. She has been in private practice as coach, counselor and analyst for 20 years.
Prior to being a psychologist, she was an educationalist for 23 years in secondary and tertiary education. She had a happy career in music as performer, teacher, conductor, music director and head of department.
Publications include articles on music, education, psychology and a book, Music: The Rock-Classic Connection, for schools, co-authored with her husband, Errol Norris, and friend Peter Alcock.
Her original idea for stage, explored with Paul Bendzsa, became a Canadian research project, “Frankenstein’s Ghosts” (2005) which was great fun and resulted in a multimedia, multi-discipline theatrical work. Affiliated to this project were Memorial, Concordia and Sir Wilfrid Universities.
She was privileged that Dr Gotthilf Isler, president of the Marie-Louise von Franz Research and Training Centre for Depth Psychology, Switzerland, invited her as guest-lecturer for their Spring training session in 2008.
She has presented papers at conferences in Canada, England, Holland, South Korea, South Africa and Switzerland and runs study groups, workshops, and seminars on depth psychology for the public and professionals.
Penny loves dogs, cats, reading, swimming and walking by the sea and, in Chapel Hill, as in England, there are feeders for wild birds.
