Bio

Hi, I'm an Alexander Technique Teacher, runner, martial artist and published author, and have over 25 years experience in competitive sport and have spent the last 12 studying performance enhancement.

In common with most sports people, I often had annoying injury problems, coupled with backache and fatigue, but thought they were just ‘normal'. Until I realised I was actually causing them myself. Conventional therapies would work temporarily but only as long as it took for me to repeat the same injury-causing habit.

After developing better movement through the Alexander Technique, I began to enjoy sport again and and gave up a career in computing to complete a three year full-time training to teach the Technique. I am now an Alexander Teacher and fitness coach working with people from all walks of life including international sports people, business executives and performing artists, all with an interest in improving performance. My radical ideas and methods work towards total fitness going beyond traditional training programs.

I continue to experiment with The Alexander Technique and fitness, and more recently with golfers, and found just how much can be achieved by first learning how to do less and not more. It has opened up a whole new perspective to how I approach my training and coach other sports people.

For more information about my methods see Alexander Technique for sports people.

My latest project is a book and online program for golfers. The website will be ready shortly, to find out more visit Play Better Golf
