I qualified as an Alexander Technique teacher from the Constructive Teaching Centre in Landsdowne Road London in 1992 and I’m a member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique through whom I am professionally insured. I’ve worked for many years as an economist and policy adviser (PPE, BA Hons. Oxford and PhD Economics, LSE). I’ve also taught in secondary school and worked with lecturers in a university to change the teaching and learning culture, largely based on my experience of the latest teaching methods during a two year post-graduate Diploma in Managment by Self-Managed Learning.
