About Bridget

I have to admit to being somewhat selfish in my choice of work.  My greatest wish is to live a long and healthy life, always be active, and stay curious about the world.  A few years ago, I met an Alexander Technique teacher who was 94. She was still busy teaching the Alexander Technique to individuals and groups and regularly rode her bike.  She also moved beautifully and had a lovely cheeky, sharp wit.  I do not doubt that teaching the Alexander Technique contributed a great deal to how well she aged.  She is my role model, and the Alexander Technique is my insurance policy against reducing mobility and frailty so often seen with increasing age.  If you want to stay active and curious throughout your life, the Alexander Technique is a great thing to learn. It could also act as your insurance policy.

I am a member of the Society for Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) Alexander Technique Bridget Barrand am committed to working within their ethical and professional standards. I am also fully insured and have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  All this means that when you choose to see me, you can be confident that you are seeing someone who is fully trained and who will always put your needs at the centre of all we do.

In the past, I have been a keen runner.  Now, walking my English Springer Spaniel takes up lots of my free time and brings me a great deal of pleasure.  I also love to learn and try new things such as archery, dancing, yoga, speakers club and lots more.  My quest to learn about the Alexander Technique is the most enduring so far and, I am sure, one that will stay with me always.


All my qualifications and experience influence my approach to teaching the Alexander Technique.  I typically ask lots of questions to help you become more aware of what you are doing. I will also give you clear explanations when needed and help you explore alternative ways of moving and responding.

Before training as an Alexander Technique Teacher, I worked in Mental Health Services for over 30 years. Starting in in-patient and community services, I later worked in research, training and service development.
