My name is Adrian Rooke. I am an accredited counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists and a spiritual healer. I am a member of the Druid grade and have been an OBOD member for over 20 years. I have served as a tutor and the press liaison officer for OBOD for over 10 years. For many years I have had the great privilege of running many beautiful ritualistic retreats with the aim of deepening and enhancing people’s life journey. It was therefore a natural and joyful progression in my life to expand into offering celebrations of births, marriages and the ultimate conclusion of life, which is death.
