Would you like to raise your game? Move more easily? Think more clearly?


  • you’d like to improve a movement technique, say, in sports or music.
  • you wish you felt less stiff, sore and tired (e.g. 'computer neck-ache').
  • you’ve tried various therapies or exercises, to no avail.
  • your recovery from an injury isn't going too well*.

The Alexander Technique is a powerful tool for change.  Unlike any system of exercise, it’s about doing less - stopping doing things that are getting in your way - rather than trying to fix them by doing even more things, which may just exacerbate the problem.  Sounds like sense, doesn't it?   Yet, though we may want to change for the better, it’s not always so easy.  Here’s where I may be of service.

With the Interactive Teaching Method I can help you work out where your problems lie and reason out solutions for yourself.  This makes for real, deep, lasting and even continual improvement.

If you’d like to know more, I’d be delighted to hear from you.

I have had several Alexander teachers over many years: Frances stands out as being not only knowledgeable and skilled - she teaches with tremendous warmth, sensitivity, humour and a genuine interest in people. She is a great advocate and role model for the Alexander Technique and I highly recommend her.
