Individual and group Alexander Technique lessons offered in your own home, at my Harrow studio or at clinics in Ealing and Uxbridge. I am a qualified teacher of the Alexander Technique and a board member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
I am one of the very few Alexander Technique teachers in the UK who is also a Master Personal Trainer, qualified in working with people with a range of health issues and an accredited life coach with the International Authority for Professional Coaching and Mentoring.
Prior to training as an AT teacher, I worked in the City for 15 years and understand the stress and pressure that modern life can bring to bear. Through the Technique, you can learn to reduce tension and go through life with freedom and ease. It is an incredibly powerful personal development tool that can be transformative for both mind and body.
This is what the NHS have to say about the Technique:
"There's evidence suggesting the Alexander technique can help people with:
Long-term back pain: lessons in the technique may lead to reduced back pain-associated disability and reduce how often you feel pain for up to a year or more.
Long-term neck pain – lessons in the technique may lead to reduced neck pain and associated disability for up to a year or more.
Parkinson's disease – lessons in the technique may help you carry out everyday tasks more easily and improve how you feel about your condition"
I am fully insured and am also DBS checked.

Feedback from clients
M, 45, West London: I am a 45 year old mother of two young kids and I have my own events company so my life is pretty physical and I am on my feet a lot. I had a shoulder injury, which required a CT scan and Cortisone injection as well as intensive physiotherapy. After many sessions with the physio he said that unless I changed the way I was using my shoulder the problem would simply reoccur. He suggested that I try the Alexander Technique.
In the first lesson Lynsey explained the concept in a very clear and calm way and it really resonated with me. Lynsey is a gifted and inspiring teacher who passion for the technique is clear for all to see. My shoulder problem has gone but the AT has given me something more than just alleviating my sore shoulder. It has infiltrated into my whole life and benefited everything from how I cook to how I sleep it has been life changing and I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
S, 34, Harrow: I am really surprised at just how thought provoking it has been. It's really altered my way of thinking and especially in the method in which I react to things like stress. What I am finding really beneficial is that my thought process as well as the way I'm using my body is so much more simplified. I feel a bit more connected if that makes sense like my body and mind are together.
