A problem with psychoanalysis is that it takes itself far, far too seriously, as do too many analysts.
Sounds odd if the guy is involved in "ground-breaking" research ( I wonder what ground he is breaking - surely not analytical ) and then, whether he has actually been formally and fully trained as an analyst ( which would have involved he himself undergoing a training analyst, to help him understand and deal with the sort of issues which seem to have arisen here ) or whether it's more of a sort of hobby of his ?
I think SASOP and the medical / Health Professions Council are FAR too obsessed with their view of some people as highly esteemed professionally, and too little concerned with simply reviewing any complaints objectively and as they should in the case of anyone, esteemed or not. Mere professional and administrative success is not something to get so esteemed up about !
