I have been teaching Alexander’s technique for 28 years to a diverse group of people with different needs and interests in developing constructive conscious control for themselves. I also work as a constructivist psychotherapist after training in Personal Construct Psychology.
The interface between Alexander\\\’s work and psychotherapy within the inter-personal field is a primary interest. I set up the STAT Special Interest Group on the Alexander Technique and the inter-personal, who meet regularly throughout each year.
This year I will give the F.M. Alexander Memorial Lecture for STAT, which will focus on the development of embodied mind and the importance of inhibition as its primary skill.
Helping people learn through constructive conscious control to develop an embodied mind and articulate their possibilities from within this is what makes this work interesting for me.
When I am not working, I like to be out walking on the hills or beaches of Scotland or in a gallery or opera house somewhere in Europe.
