Practice:
I see a wide spectrum of people and problems. I do tell people that I can work with 'any-body' but not 'any mind', i.e. I need clients' open-mindedness for the work to be of benefit.
 
A special interest is working with horse riders. The horses love it!
 
Biography:
I grew up in Switzerland and trained as a Primary School teacher. At university I read German, French and Modern History in a 3-year course specially designed for teaching at Secondary School level.
 
An Englishman is my reason for switching countries.
 
For a number of years I was a full-time mother to three boys. I trained with the National Childbirth Trust and taught for it for 15 years. This awakened my interest in 'affairs of the mind and the body', an interest that I wanted to take beyond the child-bearing years. My search led me to Feldenkrais, and this is where I am now. I want to enable people to take charge of their situation by helping them on the one hand to understand the reason behind the presenting problem and on the other hand to learn to make the changes that lead to an easier life.
