Dr. Winter grew up in England and trained in medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London and then in psychiatry in Bristol. He was also a counselor, teacher, and leader at the English L’Abri and associate pastor of a church in Hampshire for some years before moving to the United States in 1992 to head the counseling program at Covenant Seminary.

Dr. Winter's research interests have been at the interface of psychology, medicine, and theology. Each year he travels to Hungary to teach at the European Leadership Forum and has a deep interest in cross cultural counseling. He is the author of The Roots of Sorrow: Reflections on Depression and Hope; Choose Life: A Christian Perspective on Abortion and Embryo Experimentation; Still Bored in a Culture of Entertainment: Rediscovering Passion and Wonder; Perfecting Ourselves to Death: The Pursuit of Excellence and the Perils of Perfectionism; and most recently, When Life Goes Dark: Finding Hope in the Midst of Depression.
