Improve the way you move and notice changes in other areas of your life.

The Feldenkrais Method is all about having really good movement, starting with the way you already move. When movement is done with increased awareness, is efficient, connected and flowing, many people notice their emotional and physical wellbeing follow suit.
A Feldenkrais approach enables learning to take place from a nervous system, through-the-body perspective, inviting development of abilities and skills you already have, to improve the way you move.
Think about it as movement with a question, drawing your awareness to the way you already move, asking questions of your natural intelligence to play and discover new ways of moving, using less effort and tension.
When you know what you’re doing you can do what you want.
The Method has many benefits. It can have a positive impact on physical and emotional wellbeing. People notice positive changes to their posture, balance and coordination, and breathing. Some use Feldenkrais to support recovery from aches and pains, others to improve their performance in sports. Feldenkrais attracts people from varied backgrounds, from children to older people.
I am a qualified Feldenkrais Practitioner and a member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK (FGUK), subscribing to their code of ethics and have full insurance. I have a DBS check (2017). I hugely enjoy building a lively practice that includes people of all abilities, ages and backgrounds. From regular public workshops, to art companies, to teaching senior citizens more ways to move more easily.
My individual sessions have a similar diverse mix. From dancers who use wheelchairs, to students and older people, and Monday to Friday workers with everyday requests for better movement.
For many years I have worked in the mainstream arts sector as an artist, arts administrator, facilitator and consultant. My specialism is in access, inclusion and diversity. The knowledge and skills I developed in this particular sector enriches my Feldenkrais practice by challenging who can engage with the method and how.
With extensive background of working with children and young people on the autistic spectrum, and with complex disabilities in educational settings and in charity sectors, I am extremely keen in Feldenkrais for these young people. I very much welcome children in my practice and enjoy working with them.
Alongside being a member of FGUK, I am an active member of the Feldenkrais Guild UK board: Co-Manager for social media initiatives and between 2015-2018 the International Representative.
I welcome children and teenagers who require extra support and attention because of disabilities and conditions. Understanding the these extra needs, I work with families members and carers to support the challenges of daily life.
