1 What is SETCo?

I was inspired in 2006 by the Prince of Wales calling on the health ministers of the world to ‘integrate the best of complementary therapy into their public healthcare systems, and in 2010 by the Cameron government’s white paper ‘Liberating the NHS’ which pledged to open up the NHS market to ‘Any Willing Provider’. Hoping to become one, in 2010, I formed the Social Enterprise Complementary Therapy Company (, whose mission is ‘medication to meditation’, and our strap line is: ‘give a man a pill, and you mask his symptoms for a day. Teach him meditation, and he can heal his life’.
