About me

I became interested in Alexander Technique when I began to have painful hip joints. After a few months of lessons the pain in my hips had largely disappeared. I also felt better in myself, a little calmer, more confident and able to cope with the day-to-day busy life I was leading with work and 3 children.

After an introductory course at Citi Lit I decided to train as a teacher, qualifying in 2016 from London Centre for Alexander Technique and Training.

The technique not only helps reduce pain.It can teach you to look after yourself, to make those choices to change.It teaches observation of alignment helping with poor posture.It is a gentle technique that reduces unwanted physical and mental tension, allowing you the freedom to move with improved coordination and balance.It allows you to think about your body as a system, integrating physical, mental and emotional aspects.Alexander Technique teaches the possibility for inner quiet and a calmer state of mind, allowing you to take charge.

I teach one to one classes to a variety of people with pain, stress and postural issues. I also do talks/workshops to groups in different environments, offices, health workers and schools.

I have a dance and design background, and a great interest in movement and how we use our bodies in activity day to day and how we use them in a work environment with a screen or a mobile phone.

I graduated after a three-year training course at the London Centre for Alexander Technique and Training (LCATT).
