peter-symonsI met Bill Tara 20 years ago when I was making a lifestyle change. Through his teaching and mentoring I became a teacher myself and through his continued counsel and friendship found my own voice and the way to speak my own truth. It has served me well in my life. Bill changed the way I see the world and for that I have the deepest love and gratitude for him. No one should miss the opportunity to experience study with him.

Clients Testimonials

Marlene has been my Macrobiotic Counsellor for many years advising me on many aspects of health to keep me in tip-top condition. Whilst she was living and teaching in Spain she trained my chef to cook the most healthy and delicious plant based food. I love her zest for life and joie de vie spirit. Her work is inspirational to all who meet her and I highly recommend a copy of Macrobiotics for all Seasons for every home

HRH Princess Beatriz von Hohenlohe


Through Marlene’s knowledge and passion for health, nutrition and life-philosophy, I was able to gather the tools which allowed me to steer in a new and positive direction, by giving me the underlying information to start a life long journey, for which I am very grateful. Her contribution lies not only in the teaching but in the inspiration to continue.

Count Enrico Marone Cinzano – Entrepreneur, New York.


Marlene’s key to success with health counselling lies in her integrity and the power and conviction of her spoken word. She wants everyone to succeed; it’s as simple as that. Her passion is infectious. She does not make promises that she cannot deliver and is supportive of everyone’s goals. It is fantastic that anyone world wide can benefit from her decades of experience and adapt her sense and sensibility approach into their lives. I am on target to lose my excess weight with the first 16lbs already gone, my sciatica has disappeared, I am sleeping better, no more migraines and my skin has cleared up.

Derek Young, Business Development, U.K.


Marlene’s cooking classes changed my life and that of my family. The food is delicious and easy to make. She is such a genuinely wonderful authentic and amazing lady with an infectious enthusiasm and great depth of knowledge, if only she were the ‘health minister’ we’d be closing hospitals for the right reasons!!

I have been telling everyone how you have helped me reduce the size of the cancer “spot” in my breast by the latest measurements this week of 80% (please feel free to tell other clients how what you do really does work even my consultant agreed it’s my diet that has made the amazing difference).

Thank you for all your help, support and wisdom, without it I know I wouldn’t be in such a balanced place, everyone is shocked how well I look and it’s all down to your counselling and amazing tasting healing food. You are a gift to the world Marlene and I would encourage all to study with you and not wait until they have a diagnosis of, as you quite rightly put it non-communicable diseases.
