About me

The Alexander Technique is a practical way to reduce pain and discomfort, improve postural habits and fine-tune balance and body co-ordination, leaving you free to enjoy the things in life you love.

Used the world over by leading performers in the fields of music, sport, drama, singing and dance, the Technique encourages greater freedom of movement and reduced tension through the whole body, improving performance levels and reducing the risk of joint pain, Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) and other musculoskeletal injuries. Also used around the world in businesses such as the BBC and Google, it can help free us from automatic repetition of habit and provides us with choices of how we want to move, think and live our lives.

My particular area of interest is in using Alexander work to help people perform – whether that's with a musical instrument, on a sports field or just in everyday life. I have assisted in the Alexander department at the Royal College of Music in London and worked individually with sportspeople to improve efficiency and streamline sporting technique.

I am also an enthusastic supporter of the work that AT can offer to the world of education. I have helped run group AT workshops within schools and other educational institutions and am part of the Alexander in Education group for AT teachers. I also teach Alexander Technique to music scholars and other non-musical pupils, aged 13-18, at Uppingham School in Rutland.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as an Alexander teacher after completing a three-year full-time training course at the London Centre for Alexander Technique and Training (LCATT). I am now a fully accredited and insured member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) and offer lessons to individuals and groups.
