I qualified as an Alexander Technique teacher in 1986, then lived and worked in Chester for 33 years. There, I mostly taught individuals but sometimes groups - and for four years during this period also taught the Technique at the Royal Northern College of Music.

My first love was music, and I trained as a violinist at the Royal Academy of Music in the 1970s. This in turn led me to AT. I still play and teach the violin. With Alexander Technique I work with both musicians and non-musicians.

At the end of 2019 my husband and I moved to Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District, and this is where I now give lessons.

I consider myself very fortunate to live in a place so close to nature, where I can walk on the fells and cycle (electric bike for me on the hills!); enjoy rivers and lakes, the odd bit of gardening – and, of course, play the violin!

My approach to teaching is to develop a partnership with you, in which I listen to your needs and guide you through the process of constructive change.

Please read my page about Alexander Technique to see how it might help you.

Book a lesson or enquire about group classes.

If you don't live in the area but would like to book one or two lessons, accommodation may be available. If you want a short holiday at the same time this may also be possible.

I also give online lessons.
