Simon C Green was born in Jersey and educated at Welbeck College. He holds a BSc (Hons) in Technology from The Open University and a Master’s degree in Information Systems from Cranfield University.


Commissioned at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1978 into the Royal Corps of Signals, he served for nearly 30 years in military appointments in Europe, Brunei, and South Africa. He worked extensively in major military headquarters, giving him a unique insight into the staff who fight wars at a strategic level. He was also involved in training staff officers in operational leadership and war-gaming to develop and hone their war-fighting tactics at lower levels of command. He retired from military service in 2006 and settled in South Africa to pursue his passion for military history and writing.

Today my ‘day job’ is as a Body Stress Release Practitioner working in my practice in Kensington, Johannesburg. You can read about my journey in life so far and, how after years of working in military and corporate stressed environments it led me into helping others live stress and pain free lives.  When I’m not working in my practice, you’ll find me, if you’re lucky, on the remote hills in South Africa’s hinterland – looking for blockhouses !  There are plenty still to be found…


I have also started to undertake speaking engagements, and use the Anglo-Boer War Blockhouses to look into the wider heritage challenges in South Africa and as a vehicle I used to pivot into a new phase of growth.  Life is about growth and while looking at the past is interesting and often challenging – it is not forging a new path for yourselves or the nation.


If you would like to book me for a speaking engagement either to talk about blockhouses or stress in the workplace and the environment – please contact me here
