- to help with negative stress, change habits of a lifetime, relax excess tension

- to improve poise, posture, performance in daily life (sitting down, walking up and down stairs, at the computer, gardening, bending)

- to improve performance in sport, singing, public speaking

- for confidence, personal growth to unlock their hidden potential

- to improve their balance in later life, make tasks easier as they mature

Clients range in age - 5 to 85. There's no need to be fit, no exercises to do, you remain fully clothed. You learn to do The Alexander Technique as part of daily activity any where, any time and no-one knows you are doing it. You acquire skills for life by having one to one sessions or learning in a small group.

My Body reached a new level of Ease......

I had heard about the Alexander technique a number of times and to be honest for whatever reason it hadn't really resonated with me until I began to appreciate that I want to live a long life with quality and wanted to find ways to ward off the osteoarthritis and other dispositions that plagues my family's genes in general. So I decided that I should investigate further, I considered it vital that I ensure I make the best of and look after my my posture as I am now middle aged...Yikes!! not a nice thought.

I was genuinely impressed by what Olwen taught me, and no it isn't all just about sitting up straight, chest out, shoulders back as I think many people might presume. I now have little reminder notes pinned close to my desk to ensure I follow what she taught me everyday....and as for the relaxation...WOW I could not believe my body could reach that level of ease....I would go as far as to say that Alternative therapists should experience the techniques that Olwen demonstrates as I have never experienced that at any other therapy session.

Outstanding teacher - thanks Olwen!

Olwen has helped me enormously with a sore throat I've had off and on for many years. I'm a radio reporter and use my voice every day for my job. Olwen quickly identified bad habits that were causing my throat problems and showed me in a practical, hands-on way how I could improve my posture and ease the pressure on my throat. Olwen has a great way of making learning fun and I look forward to her lessons, knowing my voice is slowly but surely improving. If you're thinking about the Alexander Technique, you'd go a long way to find a better teacher! James S, Oct 2013.
