Who am I and what am I about?
Like most children I loved and was drawn to movement and physicality. I also really wanted to be a farmer. I got my first skateboard at the tender age of 5 years and shortly afterwards convinced my parents to take me to Hapkido classes at the local village hall. I was fortunate to have had several inspiring spiritual teachers during my formative years including Methodist ministers, Rastafarians and Sufi mystics, all of whom sparked my interest in the metaphysical. After leaving school I pursued a musical career, I also studied a number of martial arts. It was a turbulent period in which I recorded several albums, did session work for various artists, toured, married, had children and embarked on a career in the health and fitness industry as a personal trainer. The one constant throughout all of this was a love for exercise in all it's forms as well as an interest in the eosoteric. When I lost three people very close to me in a relatively short space of time to cancer and other illnesses, coupled with an episode of crippling back pain caused by a workplace injury that despite the best efforts of osteopaths, chiropractors and medical doctors would not heal was the catalyst for a journey of deep and profound searching. A conversation with a CHEK practitioner and Shaman lead me to reevaluate my life's journey and started me on the path of healing and development that I am on today. So why am I telling you this? Partly because this is who I am, but also because these unique life experiences have given me a particular perspective into the human condition, it's also to share with you how I have come to this particular synthesis of ideas and philosophies which have become ‘my way’. Drawing on years of study and experience, combining the rigorous application of technique with intuitive perception, utilising bodywork, movement based therapy and holistic lifestyle coaching. I am driven by a sincere desire to better myself so that I can best serve others in helping them become the best possible versions of themselves, so that together we can make this world a better place.
