I am an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, who is also a professional Astrologer, a Master Practitioner of Modern Applied Psychology (NLP, Hypnotherapy and Psychobiology). I both teach and see people in private practice. I am also a writer and musician and was one of the first people in history to attain a Masters Degree in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology.
One delightful aspect of my work is to conduct private tours exploring the astronomy and cultural history of Stonehenge, Avebury and their sacred landscape each summer.

Currently taking an Msc in Psycho-Social Studies at UWE; writing on neuroscience, psychotherapy, transforming conflict with language and the nature of consciousness.

I can also be found, once or twice a week, negotiating the brambles in a local woodland with pockets full of peanuts, raisins and apples for the local Badgers ...

Quotes I Love: To be yourself is to honour your part in creation
All you can imagine a real possibilities
It is an assumption of man that ‘I’ exist on the inside, while ‘you’ exist on the outside
Forgiveness is a gift we have to give in order to receive
If all life’s roads lead to the one great destination, one might as well take the roads that make one smile
We are not troubled by things, but rather, by the opinions we have of things
Who looks outside dreams – who looks inside wakes …
Be ! … because, you ‘are’
Technique is the liberation of the imagination
All that we admire in others are reflections of our own potential
The greatest power is to master yourself – the greatest mystery is how to do it
Every small step along the road will take you along the road
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter … it only matters, if you mind
Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world
You are both the actor and the scriptwriter of your life … and, you are in charge of casting …
Beauty is within the eye of the beholder – a comment made by a person regarding another is nothing more than a commentary, revealing the present nature of the one who made it.
Contentment is wanting what you already have
