How long does it take to learn?
The Alexander Technique involves changing longstanding, harmful habits. Like anything worthwhile, it requires a little commitment in order for the lessons to be effective. To get the benefits it is necessary to come for weekly lessons to begin with. For most people 10-12 lessons is a reasonable minimum number. Given the effect on how you feel from day to day, and the long-term effects on health and well-being, the benefit is generally considerably out of proportion to the cost!
My standard rate is £40 for an hour long lesson. I offer people who have not experienced the Technique before a half price trial lesson.
Discounted rate for new pupils
I offer new pupils a discounted block of ten lessons for £350 (i.e. £35 per lesson) when paid for in advance.
Concessions may be available in cases of real financial need, at the Midhurst location only.
What to wear
There is no need to bring special clothing, but you should wear something loose fitting and comfortable. Be aware we may be working on the floor for part of the session.

Directions & Parking
Lessons take place at the studio at my home on Ashfield Road which runs between the A272 to Petersfield and theA286 to Chichester. Cissbury is at the Petersfield Road end of Ashfield Road, and is opposite number 3. Parking in the road is generally fine during the day. In the evenings it can get a little busy, but there is also parking in Ashfield Close nearby, or free for two hours at the Grange centre (5 minutes walk). When you arrive please don't come to the front door, instead go down the alley to the right of the house following the wall on your left to the end. You will reach a little concrete area where you will find the door to the studio. Any problem my mobile number is 07747 481182.

The Hamblin Centre,
I teach at the Hamblin Centre in BoshamComing from Chichester on the A259 you will reach a roundabout in the centre of Bosham. Go straight over this and very soon on the right there is an exit which ends immediately at a T junction to a short lane that runs parallel to the A259. Take the exit and turn left at the T junction continuing down the lane (a couple of hundred metres) following it round in a sharp right into the Hamblin Trust driveway. The Hamblin Centre is the low wooden building in front of you. There is plenty of parking. I teach in the library just to the right as you go in the front door.
