Bio

I am a singer, recorder player and a mother. I've worked in professional theatre as a director and workshop leader, particularly with children. I first studied the Alexander Technique when strain-related injuries stopped me from working and enjoying activities I loved. I couldn't use the computer, couldn't play recorder, couldn't knit, couldn't even cook. Life was pretty hard for a while. I was astonished by the transformation the Technique was having on my entire life - and not just on my physical difficulties. So I decided to train to become a teacher and help others to make the same discoveries. I've since worked for Bristol City Council (Learning Communities), Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, The Actors' Workshop, and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I'm also the resident AT tutor at the Folk House in Bristol. And I play with a recorder quartet called Pink Noise!
