She collaborates with a local charity for older adults and the NHS to help older individuals improve their overall health, mental well-being, strength, balance, and mobility. Her approach combines the Feldenkrais Method, Mindfulness, and PSI to empower older adults and reduce anxiety related to falling, which can have serious consequences for their confidence and independence.

Charlotte's ability to provide a range of options, from individual sessions to group classes and workshops, allows her to reach a wide and diverse clientele, catering to their unique needs and preferences.
After exploring a variety of movement disciplines and therapies, she discovered her true calling in the Feldenkrais Method®. She has come to appreciate the value of moving slowly, breathing mindfully, and embracing moments of stillness to notice profound changes. During her Feldenkrais training, she had an epiphany: Anxiety isn't just a mental state; it manifests as physical tension, affecting our bodies in profound ways.
During her training and in collaboration with her partner she made this short movement video called Emotion in Motion to give people a feeling of the Feldenkrais Method:
She loves learning, collaborating and sharing. After her training, she has been organising Advanced Feldenkrais Training in London with Feldenkrais Trainer Raz Ori:
The trainings have filmed and edited to provide an online learning resource.
Charlotte's commitment to personal and professional growth is commendable. Currently, she is enrolled in a Developmental Trauma Foundation course and is training in Compassionate Inquiry, a trauma-informed psychotherapeutic approach developed by Gabor Mate. Her commitment to ongoing learning is to provide even more comprehensive and empathetic support to her clients.
Beyond work, she enjoys swimming outdoors, walking in nature, cooking, photography and helping run a weekly life drawing class for Lifedrawing.art in her local community.
