The Warrior Prince

 
March 5th 2010
 

HRH The Prince of Wales visited The Warrior Programme on 10 February at its London office in Fulham.

The charity provides a unique combination of treatments to ex-service and homeless people who have been traumatised by their experiences. Prince Charles was joined by some of the charity's ambassadors; actor/adventurer Charley Boorman, chef Antonio Carluccio, OBE, and John Illsley of Dire Straits.

The Warrior Programme is an intensive three-day therapeutic course, which tackles emotional and mental trauma, using a wide range of therapies from acupuncture, through neuro-linguistic programming, to realigning your qi (the body's energy).

The Prince of Wales met many of the 'Warriors' and was moved by their stories. He commented on the therapies used, saying: "The difficulty, of course, is overcoming natural scepticism about some of these techniques. But it's enormously encouraging having heard from those who have been through it all and what a difference can be made."

Eva Hamilton, MBE, founding director of the Warrior Programme, who has worked with homeless people for 20 years, said: "We treat the underlying causes of people's problems rather than just dealing with just the symptoms. Already the programme is demonstrating life-changing differences to those who have been marginalised."
