Died in 2011.
"He was a member of the British Hypnotherapy Association, and was on the National Council of Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapy Register. He set up in practice full-time in 1976. He’s lectured on hypnotherapy (for healing purposes) and demonstrated this in many parts of the UK, Europe and the USA.
"In 1980 Alec Forbes - with Penny Brohn, Canon Christopher Pilkington and his wife Pat - formed the well-known Bristol Cancer Help Centre, (now known as Penny Brohn Cancer Care). Dennis, as president of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (NFSH), was invited to join them, and he worked as a healer and hypnotherapist at the Centre for eleven years. He met Prince Charles when His Royal Highness visited the centre.
"By 1952 Dennis had become a practising Spiritual Healer and founded the Bristol Society of Spiritual Healing, but that only lasted a few years. The NFSH was founded in 1954, and is now called The Healing Trust. Harry Edwards, the most well-known and significant healer of his generation - who’d founded the Harry Edwards Sanctuary, at his home at Burrows Lea, Surrey, in 1946 - became the first member and later President of the NFSH. Dennis is a past Chairman and President.
"Dennis chaired at meetings all over the country when Harry Edwards gave healing demonstrations to large audiences. And in 1961 following a request by Harry, Dennis started the Bristol and District Association of Healers, which soon had Somerset added to the title. The Association held many demonstrations, led by Harry Edwards, as this was then the main source of publicity for the ministry of spiritual healing...
"During the years 1973-78 Dennis was a member of the NFSH Cancer Research Committee, under the chairmanship of Colonel Marcus McCausland. The pioneer work carried out by this committee was widely accepted throughout the world as one of the leaders in the field of psychosomatic causes of disease.
"In 1972 Dennis suggested that an international World Federation of Healers be formed as NFSH had by then members in fifty-eight countries. At the time Harry Edwards was still its president and Dennis was Chairman. A special Council meeting agreed that this World Organisation was necessary and that the NFSH should sponsor it... The inaugural conference was held in London in 1975 and Dennis was its first President.
"Dennis travelled all over Europe and, in 1977, as President of the World Federation of Healing, (which has recently disbanded), he was invited to the USA by the American Spiritual Healers Association together with the well known Welsh healer Reverend Marian Butler. In the six weeks of their visit he was privileged to treat a baby boy in Boston Hospital, and to lecture at Harvard University. As a result of that visit he was invited back to the USA again in 1978 and ‘79.
"For thirty years Dennis was the Senior Trustee, at Harry’s request, of The Harry Edwards Spiritual Healing Sanctuary Trust, chairing meetings at Burrows Lea, four times a year. He resigned in November 2001... He then set up The Dennis Fare Healing Centre at his home in Kingswood, Bristol, as a teaching centre for most aspects of treatment of disease and prevention, specialising in self-healing. Dennis also practiced hypnosis and psychotherapy there...s members were joining the Bristol District and Somerset Association of Healers from the surrounding counties of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Gwent it was decided in 1999 to change the name to Bristol District Association of Healers – or BDAH. Dennis was President of these Bristol Associations for most of their 50 years but has been Patron since 2009, after resigning as President. Dennis was already Patron of Healers International..."
