I qualified as a doctor in 1981 at the University of Sheffield. After completing Vocational Training for General Practice in Lincoln, in 1985 I joined the Long Melford Practice in Suffolk as a full-time GP partner, and for 23 years, a GP Trainer until I retired in August 2017 to pursue my interests in coaching and the practice and teaching of Complementary Techniques. 



I have been involved in educating and teaching for over 30 years, working in a variety of institutions and teaching a varied range of disciplines from Performance Arts and LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) at the Birmingham School of Acting, now part of Birmingham City University, physical education to pre-school children and working as a Youth Worker for Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council.
