Hello. Thank you for visiting my website. This page is just a little bit about me.
I have taught the Alexander Technique for over 35 years and have met and worked with hundreds of extraordinary and lovely people in that time. As well as my private students, I have taught at The Guildford School of Acting on the musical theatre course, with members of the British Olympic Dressage Team, and with a great many musicians, singers, and choirs - both professional and amateur. Also with tennis players athletes, golfers, and many, many more people with fascinating skills and stories. I specialise in the arena of mind-body-emotion; how our thoughts and feelings reveal themselves in our bodies. This is especially pertinent in the arena of authentic performance and ease on stage, for soloists, orchestras and choirs. (Freedom in Music and my Open Voice sessions) A musician, dancer, or actors love of performance runs deep, and yet the demands of the performing life can hinder the freedom of breath and availability of tone, colour, and movement, so the work is of special importance to those in this field.
I am also a Facilitator of The Transformational Process and as co-principal of The School of Transformational Healing I am involved in the training and CPD of facilitators. I'm not a healer as such, but a facilitator who guides and supports others on their own journey of deep cellular clearing of old patterns, emotions, and trauma.
(The story of how I came to do what I do is on the 'What are our stories?' page click here to read.)
Music (singing, piano, flute, organ) dance and art have filled my life. I've sung with many choirs in my life and currently sing with the Three Spires Singers in Truro. I love to paint on big canvases using a palette knife and water-based oils, and I take hundreds of photos.
My family are very special to me - my eldest daughter and grandson up-country, my middle daughter - a professional singer in London, and my son - a circumnavigated sailor and sailing-instructor.
That's a little about me and I look forward to hearing about you, too.
