STAN GERARD has 30 years
experience as a civil engineer. He was Agent (Infrastructure) on the Channel Tunnel Project
for TML and is used to crisis-management.
Over the past 20 years he has been developing his gift and experience as a healer and hypnotherapist and normally works in private practice at 'Serendipity', 28 Marischal Street, Aberdeen (01224 - 213 808).
He has been featured on a number of radio programmes and appeared in:
Grampian TV's: 'The Mysterious North'
'Faith Without Walls: Mind, Body, Spirit'
on STV and Grampian TV on 19.08.2001.
A number of his patients' published stories have been reported in the local, national and Sunday papers and national journals - stories including those who had been suffering from:
paralysis and multiple injuries,
rheumatoid arthritis, asthma,
endometriosis, ME/post-viral syndrome,
food intolerances, skin problems, allergies and stress,
arms, back and neck problems,
decades of pain,
He has conducted a pilot-study on restricted neck movement (RNM) with a paper published in the Journal of the Hypnotherapy Research Society (1999) [see Publications], described by their Editor as, "an exciting clinical piece, ... albeit only tangentially related to hypnotherapy: he has produced clinical data on some physical effects of spiritual healing - something which is very hard to come by".
After successfully completing four modules of the Health Services and Public Health Research Certificate Course at the Medical School, University of Aberdeen, his pilot-study on RNM was followed-up by a randomised controlled trial funded by Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust with academic and statistical support by the Department of General Practice and Primary Care, University of Aberdeen.
