About me

I am a fully qualified, CRB checked Alexander Technique Teacher and a Member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (MSTAT).
I discovered the Alexander Technique in 2006 while living in France. I had slipped a disk in my lower back and was forced to lie on my back for two months. During this time I discovered the technique which completely changed the way I was thinking about how to go about getting better. I was so happy with the results of the Alexander Technique that I decided to train as a teacher in 2009 at the Bristol Alexander School.

I teach at the Urban Fringe Dispensary in central Bristol, the lessons are one-to-one and require your active participation, this will involve discussing what you observe about yourself and the world around you while also exploring new ways to move around, stand and sit. As well as discussing how you think in relation to how you move I will also use gentle hand contact to guide you into movement and help release any unwanted tension.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from the Bristol Alexander School in 2012, where I trained for three years on the STAT approved course.

I have been teaching since then and am enjoying the experience of meeting different people and learning more about how the human mind and body works.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
