Jack Nathan is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and Consultant Adult Psychotherapist at the Maudsley Hospital Psychotherapy and Self-Harm Out-Patients Service.

He is author of numerous papers as well as the book Self-harm: a strategy for survival and nodal point of change (2006) and co-authored with Dr. Duncan Mclean, Treatment of Personality: Limit Setting and the use of Benign Authority (2007).
