Practice:
My focus at the moment is working with people struggling with sedentary or computer-based work, and with families (both grown-ups and children).
 
However, I do work with a wide range of clients from office-based workers to acrobats, from ages 80+ to children over age of 5, from those who have suffered strokes to athletes. The variety of Feldenkrais work is one of its great joys for me!
 
I teach group and individual lessons. All my group lessons are available in audio digital format, if you have attended the lesson or not.
 
Biography:
Following a short foray into political journalism in Ecuador after university, I moved into the challenging if fascinating world of NHS management. Too challenging, in fact! My anxieties and stress often manifested themselves in a physical way I began to suffer from chronic head and backaches. I needed to change.
 
I began an MA Applied Theatre at Central School of Speech and Drama, and then worked for a few years making theatre for my own company and using drama to help teach subjects like maths, history and English. During this time I attended a Complicite workshop (ran by Annabel Arden) which used some Feldenkrais, and I was hooked! After an exhilirating and life- changing Feldenkrais training in London led by Elizabeth Beringer and Scott Clark, I am now in my 5th year of teaching this extraordinary method. I feel very grateful that my journey has led me here, and am very pleased to be working with Feldenkrais London.
 
Apart from family life which takes up much of my time outside work, I also love running (particularly in the Lakes), swimming, cricket and golf but cant say Ive got that much time to perfect my skills much at the moment.
 
I feel my wide experience of different areas of working life gives me a strong foundation to work successfully, and relate to, a wide range of clients (Feldenkrais himself is said to have had 7 or 8 different careers!)
