My Story


I first got my taste for natural health by calling into the local health food store on my way home from school each night to buy goat's milk for my lactose-intolerant toddler brother, from the age of 14.   I was constantly asking the owner questions about the vast array of supplements, and I was hooked!  I opened my own Health Store 9 years later and embarked on my entrepreneurial career in natural health!    After spending most of the 1990s training in various therapies, for body and mind, and running a successful therapy practice, and supplements wholesalers, in 1999 I started the Sports Therapy Organisation, a UK-based professional association for sports injury professionals, followed in 2000, by Active Health Group, which is now the leading provider of integrative health, health coaching, and nutritional therapy training in the UK.  

My passion is helping others succeed, and so I still see therapy and coaching clients, as well as teach on the courses that we run at Active Health Group.  

As part of my commitment to my own personal and professional development, I undertake a minimum of 250 hours of Continued Professional Development each year. 

Despite what seems to be a very busy career, I still get 8 hours of sleep every night, go on regular trips away, and most importantly have lots of quality home time. 


As well as developing training courses up to degree level, I have written the following books:

2002 - DETOX (out of print)

2019 - The Recipe for Success (Co-authored with Jack Canfield)

2024 - Supercharged Productivity in Business and Personal Life - coming soon in 2024!
