If you want to reduce stress – after 30 years of working in mental health services, I have a particular interest in teaching the Alexander Technique as a means of reducing stress and anxiety.  Whilst medication and talking therapies are undoubtedly effective for some people, the Alexander Technique offers something different that can be used in combination with other treatments or on its own.
