I started having Alexander Technique sessions in 1995 having had a bad back for many years and found them to be very beneficial. I decided to train to become a teacher and completed a Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT ) approved three year full time course at the Cumbria Alexander Training School in Kendal, Cumbria in 2000.
I am a Professional member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT). I adhere to the stringent code of ethics provided by STAT and I hold Professional Indemnity Insurance .
I have studied the Eyebody Method for 15 years as well as more recently been learning the Bates Method both helping me improve my vision and not wear glasses. I bring this eyework into my Alexander teaching because as your eyes relax your vision and how you move improves.
I am also listed on http://www.alexandertechnique.com/
In addition I have a current enhanced CRB certificate.
Since 2000 I have taught individual Alexander sessions as well as workshops and courses to many people of all ages with a variety of physical problems as well as dancers, musicians, and sports people in North Yorkshire and the North East of England.
Take a look at an article in the Northern Echo which features me. http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/features/health/3745635.In_control_of_back_pain/
My interests include hill walking (I have walked extensively in The Lake District and Scotland as well as trekked in the Himalayas), swimming, going to the gym, photography, gardening and wildlife as well as playing the piano, guitar and singing. I am learning to play the saxophone.
