About me

It was as the result of the wonderful benefits that I received from taking lessons in the Alexander Technique and the sense of liberation and hope that it gave me that made me decide that I wanted to train to be a teacher.

The Alexander Technique is a process you are taught to free yourself from habits that have been acquired over the years: habits which interfere with your natural movements and cause physical and emotional pain. The technique allows you to unlearn the destructive patterns and relearn freedom of movement. Most of us use far too much unnecessary tension in our everyday activities which contributes to our stiff necks, sore shoulders and bad posture.The technique brings more flexibility, alignment, and a release of stress, as well as a greater sense of calm and confidence to everyday lives.

The Alexander Technique is the most amazing investment in yourself and your wellbeing: an investment which will last a lifetime..

Training, qualifications & experience

I have many years experience of teaching The Alexander Technique. I was lucky enough to be one of the few teachers who worked with Dr Wilfred Barlow. Dr Barlow was the author of The Alexander Principle, and brought the Alexander Technique to the attention of the wider medical profession and general public. I have worked with people from all ages and from all walks of life. For some the Alexander Technique was the last hope, improving their lives considerably and bringing relief in many conditions.

As well as being a Member of the Society of The Alexander Technique I am trained as a Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer of N.L.P. I have my own private practice in London where I teach one to one. Combining my skills I give workshops on The Alexander Technique, presentation skills, ageing well, communication and leadership both in London and abroad.
