As of 20th March on the recommendation of my governing body I have ceased work until further notice.

Please feel free to contact me by phone or email if you feel I can be of any assistance.

My best wishes to all of you in these trying times.

Important notice

Whilst normal lessons and courses aren’t happening at the moment, online courses are available and free of cost to Leeds residents. If you go to www.swarthmore.org.uk you can follow the link to enrol on an Alexander Technique taster session.

Below are links to some videos that you may find useful.  They are not really meant for beginners but I don’t think you’ll come to any harm if you haven’t had experience in the Technique.

I qualified as an Alexander teacher in 1994 after 3 years training.
Since then I have been teaching the Technique to the general public in Leeds and Hebden Bridge.
For many years I have also taught the Technique to music students at Leeds College of Music.
