We start from where you are, and work together to improve the way you move, think, act and feel.
Whether that's to help with shoulder pain, back pain, get up from the floor more easily, improve balance, or any other reason to want to move better.

I specialise in working with musicians, and working through the physical aspect of human behaviour to reduce anxiety. But I work with a wide range of clients, from all walks of life, and help them feel more at home in their bodies.

My individual clients have included (to name just a few) singers, musicians, dancers, artists, runners, skateboarders, children with (and without)special needs, computer programmers, lawyers, accountants to cordon bleu chefs, acupuncturists, osteopaths, and builders.

I've helped people:
improve their posture, shoulder, neck or back pain and mobility.
post stroke,
with spinal injury,
with Parkinsons,
with vestibular problems
Children (with and without special needs
post surgery, (as someone who spent much of their childhood in hospital, I'm uniquely positioned to help from a vantage point of experience.)

Do get in touch if you'd like to know more about my work, or to work with me.


I'm a Feldenkrais Method teacher and musician. I bring a wealth of experience with me from that field. Understanding the pressures of standing in front of an audience, and performing at the highest level, whatever the situation. I know the complexities of being a musician, and how our mind and body can get in the way of performing optimally.

I've been teaching the Feldenkrais Method since 2013. At this point I've helped hundreds of people improve their posture, restricted movement, chronic tension, shoulder and back pain, RSI, self image, and anxiety.

I'm passionate about working with musicians, helping them be more comfortable playing, and easier in their own skin, so they can enjoy performing more without injury or pain.

I have taught for the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine, Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Future Talent (charity for Young Musicians), Musical-U (online Coaching course for Musicians) and The British Army. I've been teaching for the Musicians Union since 2016.

More recently I've been running online courses for Musicians, “Reducing Anxiety, improving Stage Presence”. In these I teach about anxiety from a physical standpoint, giving a toolbox of resources for those dealing with anxiety, no matter what stage of the profession they’re in.

I've had 20+ years experience teaching children violin/viola, together with the Feldenkrais Method. Combining music and Feldenkrais is a positive way to work with very young children, or those with autism, allowing rhythm, song or movement to become part of a musical movement game we play together. ( I have an up to date Extended DBV Check)

I'm an active member of the Feldenkrais community- I teach on the London Professional Feldenkrais Professional Trainings, run by Scott Clark, as an Experienced Practioner.

I was on the UK Guild Committee for 8 years, including roles as Vice-Chair and EuroTABCouncil member. I'm currently the UK International Feldenkrais Foundation rep. And run "Cultivate Your Practice" workshops for colleagues to help them improve their practice, authentic marketing and website strategy.
