About my practice

I have been captivated by the Alexander Technique since my first lessons over 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 am experienced in working with people with learning disabilities through my involvement with Side by Side Theatre Company Stourbridge, and previous employment as a travel trainer for young people with mild learning disabilities.  

I also enjoy teaching English to adults in Further Education, and introducing Alexander principles where appropriate.

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.
