Alexander Technique Practitioner in London

We come to know ourselves through our sensory perceptions of life, how the world affects us and how we move within it. Our bodies are a map of our histories, the narrative of our lives; they record the ways in which we were brought up, they chronicle our accidents and illnesses, our emotional experiences and our beliefs. They reflect the stories we tell ourselves, and the stories others tell about us.

My Specialisms

I have built up a reputation for being an expert in tackling disorders associated with stress, depression and anxiety.

I work with Craniosacral Therapy to allow a much needed sense of stillness and quietness within and with the Alexander Technique to show you how to use your body with less tension to regain a sense of freedom.

Craniosacral Therapy is one of the most effective methods of reducing stress. Through the lightest of touches you may start to feel your body unwind and begin to be able to release long standing patterns of tension

The Alexander Technique quite simply says that the way that you use your body affects how it works, or to put it another way, use affects function. It is not a treatment as such but a series of lessons enabling you to explore how your body works.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

One of my first tasks is to invite you to be aware of how your body actually feels.

I start by looking at how stress is affecting you, both physically and mentally. The next step is to start the process of releasing it.

I teach you :

- How to learn ways of coping : we can't necessarily deal with the external circumstances but we can start to learn ways to release excess tension

- To begin to learn how to resource yourself so that you are more able to deal with the ups and downs of life

- To learn how the body and mind are connected as this is a two way bridge, start to calm the body and see how this in turn allows the mind some peace
