Practice:

I work with people from all walks of life and of all ages. Adults with a range of questions and issues such as fibromyalgia, migraine, bad backs/hips/knees, RSI, accident-induced paralysis. I often work with yoga and Pilates teachers wanting to deepen their practice. Some people have a specific area they want to address, such as chronic pain or repetitive strain, and some simply have an interest in life-long learning.

I specialise in individual and group work with autistic, ADHD and other neurodivergent young people. For more than three years I was Senior Practitioner on a research project with the universities of Kent and Surrey working with autistic children and teenagers through creative arts and Feldenkrais. I currently run Arts Award for Improbable Theatre for neurodivergent teens with speech and language difficulties.

My background is in performance so I am especially interested in working with people from the performing arts and frequently have the pleasure to teach actors, dancers and musicians.

Biography:

As well as being a Feldenkrais practitioner, I am a performer, theatre-maker, puppeteer, improvisor, researcher and mother.

I came to Feldenkrais through my movement and performance work. It was transformational for me in terms of avoiding injury and even more for opening up creative pathways I would never have previously considered. I continue to expand my awareness of and through this Method. I sit on the EUROTAB board which accredits Feldenkrais trainings and trainers in Europe and Israel.

In the 90s, I did a degree in Philosophy and History of Art, and trained as a performer at the Lecoq School in Paris. specialising in movement and puppetry. I worked in theatre, performing and directing in France and Portugal until 2009. I founded my theatre company, Beady Eye, in the UK in 2009 and toured nationally and internationally until becoming a mother in 2013. I have returned to making shows, but at a slower rhythm and I also now improvise regularly with the Free Range Orchestra and Free Women. My PhD (2018) explored self-image in Feldenkrais and performance.

I have taught Feldenkrais for performance at Rose Bruford College, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and East 15 and at the universities of Cambridge, Kent and Queen Mary, London. I teach a module entitled 'The Ecological Body in Movement and Performance' at The Margate School on the MA Art, Society, Nature.
