Simon and Sue have been involved in many aspects of healing for over forty years. They have both studied crystal healing, colour healing, flower essences and kinesiology. Simon has a long-standing interest in runes that complements Sue's practice of soul and medical astrology.
They have developed and produced Green Man Essences and their wide range of companion essences since 1990.
The Tree Seer and Tree Spirit Healing courses are based upon exploratory workshops and the study of trees and tree energies carried out since then.
They also have a wide experience in teaching a range of subjects including Flower Essence Practitioner Courses, Crystal Therapists Courses, Core Shamanic techniques, Healing with Astrology, etc, both tutor-led and by correspondence/email.
Over the last twenty-plus years we have written many books (see 'Books'for more info):
Sue and Simon are both members of The British Association of Flower Essence Producers (BAFEP). Green Man Essences is also a member of the International Association of Flower Essence Producers (IAFEP). Sue is the Secretary of BAFEP.
Simon and Sue are Joint Chairs of the Japanese Crystal Healing Institute.
Simon trained as a Fine Artist and has always valued the power of visual and poetic/magical imagery to directly communicate with the unconscious mind. A major part of his work is primarily focused on helping people to become aware of tree energies in as many ways as possible. He also works with crystals, runes, sound and shamanic techniques.
Sue is a qualified teacher and holds a Diploma in Clinical and Creative Supervision. Although trained as a Colour, Crystal and Essence Practitioner, Health Kinesiologist and Nutritionalist, she now works closely with the energies of the Land. Aiming to keep her teaching and writing straightforward and concise she hopes to enable many people to have access to information and techniques that enable them to move towards developing their full potential.
Both continue to write books and teach courses.
They live in a small cottage in the Welsh countryside ably assisted by their numerous tree, plant and otherworld helpers and cat, Treacle!

Data Protection Policy
Green Man Essences' Data Protection Policy
The purpose of this document is to provide a concise policy statement regarding the Data Protection obligations of Green Man Essences. This includes obligations in dealing with personal data, in order to ensure that the organisation complies with the requirements of the relevant Irish legislation, namely the Data Protection Act (1988), and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (2018).
Green Man Essences must comply with the Data Protection principles set out in the relevant legislation and regulation. This Policy applies to all Personal Data collected, processed and stored by Green Man Essences in relation to its customers in the course of its activities.
The policy covers both personal and sensitive personal data held in relation to data subjects by Green Man Essences. The policy applies equally to personal data held in manual and automated form.
All Personal and Sensitive Personal Data will be treated with equal care by The Data Controller. Both categories will be equally referred-to as Personal Data in this policy, unless specifically stated otherwise.
Mandala Complementary Studies works as a Data Controller for Green Man Essences
In the course of its daily organisational activities, the Data Processing Officer (Sue Lilly) acquires, processes and stores data in relation to:
o customers of Green Man Essences
Due to the nature of the service provided by Green Man Essencesy there is regular exchange of data between Green Man Essences and its customers. This policy provides the guidelines for this exchange of information.
The Data Protection Principles
The following key principles are enshrined in the Irish legislation and EU Regulation and are fundamental to Green Man Essences' Data Protection policy.
In its capacity as Data Controller, Mandala Complementary Studies (registered with the ICO) ensures that all data shall:
1. ... be obtained and processed fairly and lawfully.
For data to be obtained fairly, the data subject will, at the time the data are being collected, be made aware of:
· The identity of the Data Controller - Mandala Complementary Studies
· The purpose(s) for which the data is being collected
· The person(s) to whom the data may be disclosed by the Data Controller
· Any other information that is necessary so that the processing may be fair.
The Data Controller will meet this obligation in the following way.
· Where possible, the informed consent of the Data Subject will be sought before their data is processed;
· Where it is not possible to seek consent, The Data Controller will ensure that collection of the data is justified under one of the other lawful processing conditions - legal obligation, contractual necessity, etc.;
· Processing of the personal data will be carried out only as part of Green Man Essences' lawful activities, and Mandala Complementary Studies will safeguard the rights and freedoms of the Data Subject;
· The Data Subject's data will not be disclosed to a third party.
2. .... be obtained only for one or more specified, legitimate purposes.
The Data Controller will obtain data for purposes which are specific, lawful and clearly stated. A Data Subject will have the right to question the purpose(s) for which The Data Controller holds their data, and The Data Controller will be able to clearly state that purpose or purposes.
3. ..... not be further processed in a manner incompatible with the specified purpose(s).
Any use of the data by The Data Controller will be compatible with the purposes for which the data was acquired.
4. .... be kept safe and secure.
The Data Controller will employ high standards of security in order to protect the personal data under its care. Appropriate security measures will be taken to protect against unauthorised access to, or alteration, destruction or disclosure of any personal data held by the Data Controller. Access to and management of customer records is limited to those who have appropriate authorisation and password access.
5. ... be kept accurate, complete and up-to-date where necessary.
The Data Controller will:
· ensure that administrative and IT validation processes are in place to conduct regular assessments of data accuracy;
· conduct regular assessments in order to establish the need to keep certain Personal Data.
6. ... be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose(s) for which the data were collected and processed.
The Data Controller will ensure that the data it processes in relation to Data Subjects are relevant to the purposes for which those data are collected. Data which are not relevant to such processing will not be acquired or maintained.
7. ... not be kept for longer than is necessary to satisfy the specified purpose(s).
The Data Controller keeps personal data for a time deemed reasonable and necessary. Once the period has elapsed, The Data Controller undertakes to destroy, erase or otherwise put this data beyond use.
8. ... be managed and stored in such a manner that, in the event a Data Subject submits a valid Subject Access Request seeking a copy of their Personal Data, this data can be readily retrieved and provided to them.
The Data Controller has implemented a Subject Access Request procedure by which to manage such requests in an efficient and timely manner, within the timelines stipulated in the legislation.
Data Subject Requests
Subject Access Requests
Any formal, written request by a Data Subject for a copy of their personal data will be processed as soon as possible, with the maximum response time being one month as per GDPR.
Any formal, written request by a Data Subject for the update of their personal data to rectify incorrect or out-of-date information will be carried out within one month.
Any formal, written request by a Data Subject for the erasure or 'right to be forgotten' of their personal data will be carried out within one month.
Data Breach Reporting
A breach is a loss of control, compromise, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized acquisition, unauthorized access, or any similar term referring to situations where persons other than authorized users, for an authorized purpose, have access or potential access to personal data in usable form, whether manual or automated.
All incidents (a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed) will be reported to the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner within 72 hours. Where devices or equipment containing personal or sensitive personal data are lost or stolen, the Data Protection Commissioner is notified only where the data on such devices is not encrypted. The affected data subjects will also be informed.
Data Breach Logging
All data breaches will be recorded in an incident log as required by the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner. The log will maintain a summary record of each incident which has given rise to a risk of unauthorised disclosure, loss, destruction or alteration of personal data. The record will include a brief description of the nature of the incident and an explanation of why the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner was not informed. Such records will be provided to the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner upon request.
For the avoidance of doubt, and for consistency in terminology, the following definitions will apply within this Policy.
Data This includes both automated and manual data.
Automated data means data held on computer or stored with the intention that it is processed on computer.
Manual data means data that is processed as part of a relevant filing system, or which is stored with the intention that it forms part of a relevant filing system.

Sensitive Personal Data A particular category of Personal data, relating to: Racial or Ethnic Origin, Political Opinions, Religious, Ideological or Philosophical beliefs, Trade Union membership, Information relating to mental or physical health, information in relation to one's Sexual Orientation, information in relation to commission of a crime and information relating to conviction for a criminal offence.
