I am a fully qualified Alexander Technique Teacher and a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT).  I undertook an intensive full time 3-year training in order to qualify.  I’m also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) .

I have always been fit and active and a keen walker. However in my late 20’s I began to be troubled with lower back pain. I tried everything to alleviate it. I received excellent treatments and manual therapies, but the benefits and improvement I got, didn’t last, and the back pain inevitably returned.

I took up Alexander Technique lessons. After my first lesson, I was hooked. I left the lesson feeling light and free and felt completely different. The constant fidgeting and discomfort my back pain normally caused had gone (it did return a few days later!). I carried on with regular lessons and began to see that the back pain was largely caused by how I was using myself in everyday activities. After a number of lessons and seeing the improvement and changes in myself, I decided to train as a teacher.
