What Susannah’s clients say:
“Learning AT in the last few years has improved all aspects of my life way beyond my initial expectations. I got rid of recurring back, shoulder, hip and knee pains. I’m less clumsy and better at managing stress and the best is that I feel and look happier! Lessons with Susannah were really fun and I made so much progress. I really recommend her as a teacher.”
Lauren, Research Scientist
“I have found Susannah to be personable, persuasive and enthusiastic. She manages to give attention to each participant in the group, while tuition and practice progress with good pace for the group as a whole. She is intuitive, able to understand the source of minor problems and offer appropriate and effective advice. She understands runners and what they want, and is very able in helping achieve those goals.”
Margaret Waddingham, Chairman – Ware Joggers
“Susannah is willing to work on any aspect I raise, such as playing the violin, computer work, running, car travel etc. Her guidance is clear and calm. I have been recommending Susannah and the Alexander Technique to all my friends and work colleagues: it really has been life changing.
“I really like the way it has helped me to be more balanced, calm, and kinder to myself. The freeing of my neck is a huge benefit. I used to get migraines and the occurrences have been greatly reduced to almost nothing now.
“The technique has spread into most of my life now. In particular sitting, walking, playing the violin and guitar: I nearly always had neck pain after these activities and it has nearly all vanished. I do feel all round calmer as I move about. Lifting has improved too. I do a lot of packing for work and I have become conscious of how I was bashing myself around in a whirlwind. Now I have slowed down and do things far more efficiently and with thought. I do feel calmer too. There is still much to improve on, but I feel I’ve made a really good start.”
Cindy Crossland, Project Manager
“I first went to see Susannah after suffering from pain in my right shoulder for a number of years, and trying various treatments without success. I had a feeling that the pain was being made worse by working at a computer all day.
“The Alexander Technique appealed as I hoped that it would help me to identify the cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptons. After eight sessions I am pleased to say that I have noticed an enormous improvement, in fact I have been entirely pain free for a number of weeks.
“Susannah encouraged me to think about how I was carrying out everyday tasks at home and at work. She made it easy for me to identify behaviours that were contributing to my problem, and helped me to make small changes which have made a big difference.
“I found all my sessions with Susannah to be informative and enjoyable, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Susannah and the Alexander Technique.”

Praise for the Alexander Technique:
“The Alexander Technique will benefit anyone, whether they are an elite athlete or whether they just wish to live life without the aches and pains that many people suffer and accept as part of life. It is a pity that these techniques are not shown to us all at an early age for I have no doubt that this would alleviate many of the causes of ill health in our communities.”
Greg Chappell, former Australian test cricketer
“The Alexander Technique can be sustaining; it is something that if learned well, can be carried along with you for the rest of your life. It gives you confidence to be who you are when you are up in front of an audience.”
