About me

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 also the only Alexander Technique teacher in London 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. Whether you want to be able to sit, stand, play a musical instrument, do public speaking with ease and confidence or just go through life using less effort, then get in touch to discuss how Alexander Technique lessons could help you.

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.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
