I have been teaching the Alexander Technique since I qualified in 1999; having completed my 3 years of training at the Bristol Alexander Technique Training School (BATTSA). I am a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) and Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC). In 2015 I was elected to serve on the Council of STAT and in 2017 I was elected to serve as Chair.
I live with my family in Blagdon, North Somerset where I run my private practice. I teach regularly at the Bristol Alexander School (www.bristolalexanderschool.co.uk) including taking the anatomy sessions and am the assistant director.
My first experience of the Technique was in 1986 when, having been inspired by a book I had been given, decided to have some lessons. This book, “The Alexander Principle” by Wilfred Barlow, explained such a fascinating concept that I decided to find out more. The idea of doing less seemed a good one, and if it increased my balance and took away my headaches it must be worth exploring.
As time goes on this fascination continues and my understanding of the Technique deepens. I love using the technique in my life and teaching it to others.
There is a very good website well worth exploring if you wish to read more about the Technique – www.alexandertechnique.co.uk
