I am a Teacher of the Alexander Technique and offer private lessons in Dunmow, Essex.
The Alexander Technique teaches the skilful "use of the self": how we move, how we breathe, how we learn, how we organise our awareness and focus of attention and, above all, how we choose our reactions in increasingly demanding situations.
Because it is a technique for mental and physical re-education, it can have a positive effect on a wide range of stresses and ailments, including back, neck or shoulder pain and other muscular/skeletal problems, headaches, RSI, breathing difficulties, sports and performance strain, stress related conditions, anxiety and depression. It also works to enhance performance, improve vitality and general wellbeing.
But no amount of written commentary can really explain what the Alexander Technique is and how it works. It has to be experienced. That is why I encourage potential pupils to come along for a trial lesson. I very much look forward to working with you.

…Change involves carrying out an activity against the habit of life…
…In a word, what we have to do is learn to think in activity…
Our habits decide our future…
