Having started his career as a Professional Town Planner in London, Tony later, of necessity came upon TCM, incorporating Tai Chi and Qigong. He was searching for ways to help himself deal with a chronic health condition. He has now been teaching Tai Chi Qigong and Stress Management, initially through Adult Learning for North Yorkshire County Council, and then privately, for over 20 years. He also worked until recently for Growing with Grace, an organic farm, and learnt the link between health in the soil and health in human beings. Tony is a registered instructor with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain and has a Diploma in Stress Management Training. He has trained in counselling skills and is an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner. He has an understanding of and deep appreciation of the Human Givens approach to Mental and Emotional Health.
Tony’s purpose in teaching is to introduce people to the benefits of deep relaxation and more considered energy use through stillness and movement. His approach is to empower people, encouraging them to adopt new ways of thinking and living their lives as they put this learning into practice.
