I qualified as an Alexander teacher at the Lansdowne Road School in West London, learning from Walter Carrington, who was taught by F.M. Alexander himself in the 1930's.

I am also a Research Fellow at the Institute of Education, University of London, working on the National Child Development Study.  I studied at Bristol University, have an Honours degree in Pure Mathematics, and postgraduate diplomas in Social Administration and Applied Social Studies.

I've performed as a singer, specialising in 1930s-style cabaret, and as a dancer, in the tradition of Anna Halprin's San Francisco Dancer's Workshop. In the 1970s I used to run a night-shelter for homeless men, and subsequently I worked as an inner-city social worker, welfare rights adviser and social policy campaigner. I have two children: George aged 31, and Beatrice, aged 18.

If you live in the West London area, I offer lessons at Barlby Road, W10 (just off Ladbroke Grove) most weekdays and evenings - see contact page.
