"It was 1990, I had left my oil business job and started my journey into the world of health and wellbeing; it was a giant leap of faith.
No one much cared about health back then and the term wellbeing had not even been invented.
But despite the mood of the time, I was drawn to ideas of health and balance. It made perfect sense to me that we could not live a life of excess;
drinking, smoking, living a hedonistic lifestyle and not have to 'pay it back'. I decided to take a trip to San Francisco where I knew there was a
big movement in alternative health and living. During that time I attended many lectures and was lucky enough to work with some truly inspiring
teachers including Hoffman of The Hoffman Process. The three months I spent there laid the foundations of my life's passion.
On graduating, my first paid job was at the award winning NHS clinic The Gateway in South London, this was a multi-bed clinic where we saw up
to 20 patients a day for acupuncture. In 1999 I was introduced to Dr Tim Evans who was opening an integrated clinic for families in Wandsworth.
It was one of the first of its kind and Western medicine consultants and complementary therapists practiced side by side in harmony.
