"I worked with Scott for a year. It was a wonderful experience. His integrity as a teacher in my eyes is second to none. He really helped me through a difficult time in my life with not only his great skill as an Alexander Teacher, but also his big heart. I would recommend the experience to anyone."
- Laura Greenwood, Actor
"The Alexander Technique has been a companion for much of my professional life as a violinist. I was immediately impressed with Scott's level of skill in the Technique and I am sure that anyone who chooses to take lessons from Scott is in very capable hands."
- Jane Carwardine, Principal Second Violinist, City of London Sinfonia
"The health and fitness industry is rife with bloated claims and fads, many of which can lead to injury and pain. I experienced both during my early days as a professional puppeteer and then for 35 years as a tennis professional. Now in my 59th year, I have found a new passion: boxing. My time with Scott has been immensely valuable. That I am able to sustain the level of training intensity that boxing demands - and at the same time bin the Ibuprofen - can only be credited to Scott's knowledge of health and fitness, and more importantly, "Nature's Steroid", better known as The Alexander Technique. Here's to 'Floating like a butterfly, and stinging like a bee.' "
- John Sinclair, Director, Sinclair Realty Bermuda LLC, Christie's International Real Estate
"Thank you for teaching me to be a better version of myself."
- Linda Leon, long-term Pupil
"Most definitely your lessons have saved my back. I get no twinges whatsoever."
- Pat Anslow, keen gardener (aged 65), after 10 lessons
"The work you do with me has helped enormously and I feel altogether much more confident and in much less pain."
- Chirria Hutchison, after 10 lessons following knee surgery
The Alexander Technique has been around for longer than you may think and has helped many more people than you may think. Here is just some of the praise for the 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.”
- Greg Chappell, Australian Test Cricketer (1970-1984)
“Evidence suggests the technique has the potential to improve certain health conditions. Some NHS trusts have started to offer Alexander technique lessons as part of their outpatient pain clinics.”
“We notice, with growing amazement, very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness and mental alertness, resilience against outside pressures, and in such a refined skill as playing a musical instrument.”
- Professor Nikolaas Tinbergen, 1973 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine and Physiology.
