About My Professional Life
I completed my Bowen Training in 2006 via the Bowen Association of UK (see www.bowen-technique.co.uk)
Until 2017 I was also a Chartered Civil Engineer (C.Eng Bsc(Hons), MICE). For some 40 years I designed and supervised the construction of major civil engineering infrastructure projects around the world.
In 2007 I came to Oxford to supervise the construction of the £34 million pound A34 Wolvercote Viaduct Replacement Scheme. Where, after normal hours, I offered free Bowen Therapy sessions to members of the large construction site team.
On completion of the project and at the age of 61 I decided to stay in Oxfordshire and undertake Bowen Therapy full time and commenced a practice in Woodstock Oxfordshire. I know offer and offer treatment at the "Beanbag" Natural Health Care Centre in Witney and Meridian Clinic Eynsham.
Between 2011 and 2013 I volunteered my service free on a 1 day a week basis to the Charity 'eve' - a well women's group who operated out of Witney. During this time i undertook over 500 treatment sessions on some 80 women - addressing a wide range of physical and emotional issues.
Since 2016 i have been offering Bowen Therapy at 2 Clinics. Currently clinics are in Beanbag Natural Health Clinic Witney and at the Higher Health and Healing Clinic in Charlbury. (The latter has ground floor access)
Since May 2019 - Offering free treatment to stroke sufferers through Woodstock Stock Club (Alternate Tuesdays)
