I am particularly interested in helping people to deal with movement problems that can arise from the type of work they do. I have also developed work with people living with Parkinson's, Dystonia, MS. MND and recovering from stroke. In addition, I work with performing arts students and professionals as well as individuals from many other walks of life, such as runners and walkers; yogis and anyone interested in moving better.
I have been working in the field of Theatre and the Performing Arts for the last 25 years as an actor, director, writer and teacher. In 1995, I suffered a back injury that left me immobile for 6 weeks. I recovered but was left feeling very stiff and nervous of moving. For an active director and performer, this was disastrous! Luckily, I was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method by another theatre director and I was amazed at how quickly I not only recovered but improved my range of movement as well as my confidence and self esteem. After several years of incorporating the Feldenkrais Method into my rehearsal work with actors, I undertook the four year Teacher training and graduated from the Sussex V training in March 2010.
