We have been coming to see Victoria for just over a year, after years of surgery, medication and other treatments that have proven to be ineffective to Emma. Victoria’s work has been completely life changing for Emma and her family, as she can now focus on being a child and enjoying the same things as everyone else instead of being ruled by her health.

Victoria came highly recommended when I was suffering with arthritis and a fractured vertebra. Through changing old habits, lengthening, widening and finding space in my body – I move more freely and am in less pain.
Victoria is very intuitive and in tune with the individual. Her own ‘good use’ is uplifting in every sense.

I started seeing Victoria a few months prior to the surgery, upon recommendation from a friend. I trust Victoria and feel completely safe and comfortable in her hands. She is overwhelmingly lovely and understanding, and caters the ‘lessons’ to my day-
The Alexander Technique is a way of life, without dominating your existing one. Unlike any of the other professionals I have come across, Victoria talks me through what she does, and teaches me to understand my body in a way that will help me care for it throughout my life. Victoria is a truly talented teacher that knows her stuff! She welcomes her clients into her home rather than calls them in for an appointment.
