I qualified as an Alexander Technique teacher in April 2008 (MSTAT) and trained to teach Mindfulness with Breathworks and Bangor University and Exeter University. I work to the Good Practice Guidelines as developed by the UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations.

I teach the Alexander Technique on a one-to-one basis as well as offering introductory courses and talks.  I run 8 week Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses (in groups or one-to-one), tailor-made mindfulness courses for business organisations and regular taster/refresher sessions.

Both practices enhance my own well-being and help me make better choices in day-to-day life as well as enabling me to work in a heart-centred way with my pupils and clients.  I love that this work is about supporting others to thrive and have more say in their own physical, mental and emotional health.

What most inspires me about both Mindfulness and the Alexander Technique is the way that they encourage us to move from living habitually to living consciously – and the recognition that we do have much more choice than we realise.

I love the forgiving nature of both Mindfulness and the Alexander Technique. Neither are about getting it right or perfecting something, they’re about noticing where we actually are and perhaps stopping our habitual interfering and allowing a new experience.  At the same time, both recognise that it isn’t easy to move away from habitual patterns, but they encourage a gentle approach, a sense of humour and a sense of kindness.  If we forget and go back into habitual ways, there’s always a new opportunity, a new stimulus, another moment.

I am continually inspired by both practices and the way they encourage us to become more aware, more conscious and how this empowers us to manage our own wellbeing, to take responsibility and to become ourselves more fully.
