My working and business career started in the Army with the Royal Corps of Signals as a Senior Communications Manager, serving for a total of 24 years with 13 of those in Special Forces (joined the SAS & Signal Squadron in 1972 which included gaining parachute wings). Continuing my experience in the telecommunications, I joined Cambridgeshire Police as its Head of Communications & IT and finally into consultancy and project management as a Senior Consultant with an IT/Communications Consultancy Company based in Manchester..

I trained as a Complementary Therapist in 1997 and set up my own business as a Shiatsu Practitioner and Quantum Touch Healing Practitioner, some 18 and 15 years ago respectively; I worked from the St Ives Complementary Health Center for 4 years but now visit my clients in their own homes. As well as being a busy practitioner I was also an Advanced Quantum Touch Healing Instructor and traveled the world teaching advanced healing techniques to others.
