For the last thirty years Simon has studied—and more importantly actually practiced—the art of philosophy and delivering his unique approach to healing and expanding the strength of the mind.
Growing up in a volatile hostile family environment...
Simon's early life experiences were difficult and challenging, which resulted in chronic anxiety and recurring depression that forced him to search for a life of more meaning.
Simon's initial search led to him winning a Southern England bodybuilding title at just 20 years old.
Shortly after he won the title he realised that this wasn’t what he was looking for, and had actually made him feel worse.
"Muscles didn’t make the man."
Muscles gave Simon a false sense of courage and confidence, and this realisation helped him turn his back on a sport that had paradoxically served merely to heighten his sense of insecurity.
Having not resolved his past, he fell extremely ill with M.E. for five years. The result of a depressive and anxious state that ultimately probably saved his life.
Simon's condition was so bad, the medical doctors thought he had Leukemia, and he was told numerous times he would never be fully well again.
Following this, he found martial arts and re-immersed himself in Eastern philosophy—which included meditation, Chi Kung and ancient physical conditioning methods for the mind and body, and Simon practised intensely under the guidance of renowned, highly sought-after and knowledgable teachers.
Simon learned how to heal himself, and then started to show doctors—and deliver talks about—what he had done.
This was the embryonic stage of his unique approach on healing the mind and body through food, thought and movement.
Through his own illness, he had an incredible breakthrough moment by realising that everything he thought, did, watched, believed, consumed—and the people he mixed with—were all connected.
Simon became a meditation and Chi Kung instructor, helping hundreds of people overcome a wide range of health issues that uncovered how mental health or unresolved childhood stress, manifest in a wide variety of physical conditions and disease.
Simon went from having a severely debilitating illness, to someone who understood the power of combining meditation, nutrition and a regime of training and breathing techniques to achieve positive outcomes and access memories that contained trauma.
Simon went on to practice seven martial arts to black belt level with National, World and Olympic medalists and in turn became a coach in all seven disciplines. (Tai Chi, Ba Gua, Judo, Kick Boxing, Karate, Kung Fu and Jujitsu) Simons interest in martial arts was not limited to these seven, he also practised Escrima, self-defence, Sombo, Silat, boxing and Muay Thai.
He was soon able to tackle challenges like ultra-marathons, and at the age of 42 he completed “The Wolf” several times, a 45 mile ultra marathon in the Caingorm mountains in the Scottish Highlands; he arrived third out of 250 participants.
His background has taken him from working as a nutritionist for a private medical company, to a physical conditioning expert and deepening his work as a healer incorporating the philosophies and values he had discovered.
Simon's private coaching clients have experienced phenomenal results.
He has coached individuals to overcome difficult and challenging experiences in life, such as low self-esteem, addictions (from work to all kinds of substances), boardroom and personal relationship bullying, physical abuse and depression.
