Learning the Alexander Technique can give you a lifelong tool to help manage stress or situations you find difficult.

You might be doing a presentation, an audition or interview, or coping with tight deadlines. Or you might have longer-term stresses in your life – juggling a busy job and family, coping with illness or a family dispute, or caring for a relative 

Lessons in the Alexander Technique will help you to: 

  • find a new way of responding to people and situations

  • stop feeling overwhelmed

  • improve your breathing

  • reduce nerves and anger

  • find a greater sense of balance and calm

  • feel more confident about your capacity to cope with life  

In one-to-one Alexander lessons I’ll use sensitive hand contact and spoken guidance to help you learn to stop before you tense up.  You’ll begin to get a sense of how you often react without thinking - and how you could change that.  The Alexander Technique integrates thinking and activity, so over time you’ll find a greater level of self-awareness and will feel calmer and more balanced. 

You’ll learn lifelong skills of self-care which will help you to feel more resilient, whatever you’re facing.
