About my practice

I have been captivated by the Alexander Technique since my first lessons thirty years ago. Confronting habit is not easy; but brings ease. I started out wanting to get my broken leg fixed, and ended up leaving my book editing job  to train as an Alexander teacher. 

​I qualified in 1991 from a 3-year STAT approved teacher training course, and have run a practice in London and now the West Midlands since then. I am privileged to work with a wonderful variety of pupils of all ages, from accountants to artists, performers to health professionals, people in pain and people just curious.

I teach the Technique in schools, and travel to  community organisations and businesses to deliver talks and courses.

Quick Q and A

Can I learn Alexander Technique online?

Yes.  You can join me online via Zoom for introductory or ongoing lessons.

What is the Alexander Technique?

A long-established method for changing postural hasbits.  Qualified teachers use light touch and verbal instruction to help students learn how to improve balance, breathe better and be calmer. Well known for helping with back and neck pain, and a favourite with performers of all varieties.

How long is a ball of string?

Is the correct answer to how many lessons do I need.  Some pupils come for 5 sessions and have got what they came for, most take between 20-30 lessons, while others make the Alexander Technique their 'way of life', taking occasional lessons to develop their use of the A.T. through the years.  

 

I have a medical condition.  Is it ok to take Alexander lessons?

Yes.   Always check with your doctor or relevant health professional  if you have any concerns before or during a course of Alexander Technique lessons.

The Technique is EDUCATIONAL and can be practiced in tandem with treatment regimes. 

 

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes, trousers preferable to a skirt. 

 

What are your qualifications?

I was trained, qualified by and am a member of STAT, the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique. STAT is the oldest professional association for A.T. Teachers in the UK. As a registered member I abide by the code of conduct and undertake continuing professional development (CPD).

I hold insurance through STAT, and have enhanced DBS certificates.

In 2014 I passed the ITLLS course (Intro to teaching in the lifelong learning sector) at Wolverhampton University.  During 2020-21 I undertook  a PGCE to extend my teaching skills, and have been awarded a degree in post-compulsory education and training from Birmingham City University.  

In 2015 I successfully completed 'The Performing Self': a 10 week course for Alexander teachers working with music, dance and theatre students run by Rose Bruford College.

I hold a BA degree in English Language and Literature from Durham University, and an MA from Clark (USA).
