Roy, born 1930, is a retired Chartered
Engineer, a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, with a long
career in the design of transport aircraft, and practical piloting
skills. He has constructional hobbies, making anything from working
models of all kinds, including steam locomotives, to life-size gliders,
aeroplanes and boats, also skilled in practical building and repair
Ann, born 1932, is a doctor's daughter with a
wide range of skills and qualifications, used in self-employed work.
Her university career was ended by serious illness, deemed terminal
when diagnosed, so she has a degree in 'life and death' rather than
the usual paper qualification. Past involvement in antenatal and
stress management teaching groups led on to further training and
a social worker job in a psychiatric hospital, then training in
counselling, psychotherapy and psychological astrology, until recently
registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists.
She manages a large garden and used to keep bees.
Their two daughters have produced five grandchildren, an education
and joy for all concerned.
Both are very experienced dowsers and healers. They have been teaching
these subjects for over 30 years based on extensive practice. Both
are registered healers with the National Federation of Spiritual
Healers, and on the professional register of the British Society
of Dowsers. They were Trustees of the Chalice Well in Glastonbury
for many years.
Until recent retirement they ran workshops and courses on Dowsing
and Healing at their Somerset home, but currently respond to requests
for their healing "sick houses" service at the rate of
about 300 a year.
