My story

I first took Alexander Technique lessons as a child to complement my violin playing. Following many years of lessons in the UK and Japan, I began to see how it benefited every aspect of my life and this led to a deep desire to communicate it to others. I then took the decision to train as a teacher with some of the UK’s foremost experts at the Centre for the Alexander Technique, London.

Over the last decade I have taught the Alexander Technique to hundreds of people from all walks of life. I have been much in demand as a teacher and workshop leader in the UK and abroad. I have developed a particular specialism in teaching the Alexander Technique to musicians, and am currently a faculty member at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Services

I offer both one-to-one lessons at my studio in central Bristol, and workshops for companies and institutions in the UK and abroad.

What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a method to prevent life’s stresses and strains interfering in our best coordination. Over time, unconscious habits can cause pain or tension at work or in everyday life, and can also lead to underperformance in activities such as music or sports. Taking lessons in the Alexander Technique helps you strip away these habits and regain the poise and freedom that most of us had as children. Read more.

“I have been to numerous Alexander talks over the past 40 or so years … What Henry’s talk did, though, was to explain the rationale behind the Technique in a way which clarified it for me as never before.”
