If your insurer is not listed here, it is still worth asking if they will pay for lessons.
Workshops and Introductions
I offer occasional introductory courses. Please note that these can provide a useful introduction to the Technique, and can be very helpful, but they are not a substitute for individual lessons. I also run occasional workshops for established students and a weekly class for A.T. teachers and experienced students.
If you have further questions about the Alexander Technique, about lessons, or regarding your own situation, I welcome contact by either telephone or email.
Free advisory consultation
If you think that the Alexander Technique might be helpful to you, then you are most welcome to book a free consultation. This is an opportunity for you to meet with me, to have a brief assessment and to ask any questions that you may have, before deciding whether you would like to go ahead with a first lesson.
After the consultation you can choose to proceed with your first lesson straight away, or you can book a lesson for a different date, or you can take some time to consider. There is no obligation on your part.

His calmness, patience and willing and thorough answering of every question that I had (and I had a lot!) reassured me that I had found an experienced and genuine therapist"

Paying for lessons
Lessons cost £58 each (from 2017) and last about 40 minutes. (Qualified and trainee A.T. teachers may pay a lower rate according to individual circumstances).
Lessons may be paid for by cash, cheque or bank/online transfer.
Most self-employed people can claim lessons against tax and some employers and private insurers (see below) pay for lessons.
Private medical insurance
Many of the major private medical insurance companies will reimburse Alexander Technique lessons. Please check the conditions of your policy with your company. Most require a consultant referral (see exceptions below), and I can assist you with advice in obtaining this. The following companies will normally fund lessons:
