Journeying through my own 'complexes' in later life has lead me to deep interest in the mind-body connections and personal development.  I am a transpersonal counsellor, worked for 16 years as a remedial massage therapist and have a technical background in electronics.  I hope to bring some of my knowledge to the role of Secretary to assist the Society and its members.
