His personal words ‘It is ineffective for a Physician, Coach, Therapist or Counselor or indeed any health professional not to be experienced in lifestyle medicine that includes: physiological needs, plant-based nutrition and exercise science and expect to be delivering improved mental health, wellness or great results for clients – lifestyle medicine education must become a part of all health professionals continued professional development, and curriculums.’ His commitment to learning from leaders as mentors has taken his professional skills to a high level.

As a Priest/Minister Antony served Catholic Communities in India and the U.S. for 12 years. He has integrated his spiritual practices and training into his psychotherapy career, as well as Eastern practices of meditation and Western practices of hypnotherapy.
