He has been practicing for more than 20 years, specialising in personal-crisis management. He now has a weekly column in The Observer.Review:
"Barefoot Doctor is the modern day equivalent of a nomadic healer (but he's also got) enough charm and humour to make palatable at least some of the pseudospiritual psychobabble his vocation involves" DAILY TELEGRAPH "A charismatic figure with a calming way (of helping his charges) ... one to catch." TIME OUT "(After one hour of healing), the sense of lifted spirits and serenity is overwhelming" VOGUE
