Tom Stevens creative work in film and in novels, is inspired by more than thirty years of personal study and practice as a depth psychologist and psychotherapist: and in particular by the work of the great analytical psychologist Carl Jung.

 

A personal family friendship, and blessing, from Franz Jung only son of Carl Jung: to Tom Stevens (Steve Richards) and his wife Pauline Richards, was given in the study of his father's house at Kustnacht on Lake Zurich, Switzerland, in May 1992.  Tom and Pauline made a promise to Franz: to bring his father's work to ordinary people - something they did in their career as psychotherapists, and now as filmakers.

 

George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars went to Jung's student, Joseph Campbell and asked him what the ingredients of creating a modern myth were.   Lilith is just such a modern myth, and it too has it's roots in Carl Jung's work, set against the magnificent stage that is the city of Liverpool.
