Daniel discovered that he has learned to move normally again after a suffering a diving accident, that his confidence has been given a boost and he's much calmer. He's been so happy with the results that he's embarked on an Alexander Technique teacher training course!
Bradley had career threatening RSI, but after 14 lessons with me is now recovered with a new level of enthusiasm to playing and making music. As a guitarist myself I really enjoy working with fellow guitar players and fully understand the problems guitarist's face.
"I'm enjoying my lessons with Adrian as he has an interesting way of describing things and we've had some good conversations about aspects of the Alexander Technique.
It's fascinating how the work shines a spotlight on areas of daily life. For example, immediately after my last lesson I went into the garden to wind in the awning and noticed how much easier it was because my back and arms were naturally working in a more co-ordinated way. I usually find this a challenge physically as I'm wheelchair bound, but just struggle with it anyway. This contrast of ease versus struggle made me realise that now my muscles are getting a weaker, even when they were more co-ordinated, this was a task I should no longer be doing because it was too taxing. I'd never stopped to think about it before.
Another bonus is that I don't mind doing the washing up now! Previously I considered it a boring chore. Now I just do it because it needs doing.
In both cases there has been a change in my mindset from struggle to facing reality, and from dislike to pragmatism, all because Adrian's teaching has encouraged more integration into my way of being."

"When I came to my first Alexander Technique session I must admit I was a little sceptical. However, since then my lower back pain has gone completely and I find that it has helped me to be more relaxed in every day life and has consequently helped me in numerous different ways in my life. I would like to thank you for your patience and professionalism and on going a great way to delivering what I hoped to get out of the sessions when I first started."

"My first AT session seems to have done wonders already. Not sure if it's my mind which is now convinced my back is getting better or my body which tries to relax and reduce or eliminate the pain. Probably a bit of both.Thanks so much. I look forward to next week's session."

"I came to Adrian with very tight shoulders and he did an excellent job of helping me release them. Adrian's insights really helped me notice my tension habits that were causing me pain."

"Adrian is a very warm-hearted, genuine teacher, who also has a very intelligent and broad understanding of the Alexander Technique."
