Dr Owen has shared some of the concepts and ideas that have helped shape his work as a holistic doctor. They are arranged around phrases he sometimes uses but he does not always have a chance to fully explain. These ideas belong not just to patients but are relevant to a wider audience. They reflect the professional tension between unconditional support and gentle challenge, between servant and expert, listener and adviser, objective observer and subjective participant. The reflections and any insights have emerged from the special place that is created when a patient and doctor sit and travel together into the patient’s past and together glimpse a few steps into the future.
