Adam Cadell was born in a small Sunderland village in the North East of England called South Hylton.
His early years were spent in a media orientated environment, editing, copywriting and commercial production, this involved a wide cross section of areas, ranging from newspapers (free and paid titles) commercial radio and business magazines.
In the North East he worked for The Evening Chronicle newspaper in Newcastle upon Tyne, Radio Tees (Now TFM) a commercial broadcaster in Stockton on Tees where he wrote radio commercials on behalf of advertisers, the Northern Echo in Darlington, Advertising Manager for a furniture group also based in Darlington and he also launched a glossy, free magazine called Media Waves in Middlesbrough
He later moved to The Executive which was the parent publication of the latter named magazine.
He launched his own free newspapers in Yarm and Billingham in the early 80’s, but sold these in order to take up a position with the commercial broadcaster Chiltern Radio whose studios are located in Bedfordshire.
Chiltern were looking for someone to cover Cambridge which was on the periphery of their transmission area, they wanted someone with specialist knowledge of writing radio commercials to provide that service to the radio station’s Cambridge advertisers who were booking airtime in increasing numbers – having had specific experience with TFM in Stockton, he was made an attractive offer to relocate and so moved to the village of Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire, where he was joined, 6 months later, by his wife Jacqueline.
Keen to learn additional skills, he eventually moved to different companies and worked from Colindale in North London and the centre of the capital too, during this time he and his wife Jacqueline found themselves living in Hitchin in Hertfordshire, Sandy, Bedfordshire, Marlow in Buckingshire and finally, before their return to the North East, the outskirts of Luton in Bedfordshire.
They returned to the North East in 1990.
Continuing his desire to acquire additional skills, he undertook driving instructor training and for a few years held a BSM – followed later by an AA franchise. He eventually launched his own driving school.
An opportunity arose to launch a domestic cleaning business in 2002 and so in March of that year, Take A Break came to fruition, it’s now the largest home cleaning business in the region.
Eventually staff were brought into manage the bulk of the incoming calls for Take A Break and with his time freed somewhat, Adam decided to move into another venture, namely clinical hypnosis.
He attended a North East based college weekly during 2003 and 2004 and succeeded in obtaining a Diploma with Distinction in Clinical Hypnosis during 2004.
