Individual Feldenkrais Training Sessions
Each individual Feldenkrais lesson with me is an hour long session that will include an exploratory discussion of the issues you are dealing with – see list below – followed by hands-on training via gentle touch, to enable you to release chronic muscular holding patterns and connect to a more fully conscious sense of self. At the end of the session you will be given “homework” individually tailored to enable your continuing improvement. The benefits of this work develop and increase over time – as with any practice that is genuinely effective – and ideally you would support this tailored learning process with regular classes and workshops. With a commitment to Feldenkrais there is a real possibility of continuous improvement in your ability to move with ease, grace and greater self-awareness throughout your life, whilst also enhancing your ability to learn any new skill you desire.
Individual lessons Online
I am finding that it is possible to give effective and useful one-to-one training online, so do feel free to contact me and we can discuss whether it will work for you. I am now teaching at home again after a long lockdown hiatus, but am enjoying the way working on Zoom enables me to connect with people at a distance, and provide recordings to support ongoing practice.
Venue For Live Individual Lessons
My home studio is in Drakefell Road, SE14
Standard fee: £70 per session – standard concession rate £60 (no questions asked – this rate is for anyone on a low income).
Booking multiple sessions
Package Rates & Intensive Courses
An individual concession rate can be negotiated for any number of individual lessons taken in any time period, however you may like to take advantage of my ongoing offers (see below) – you can also choose to book multiple lessons as an intensive course of study, to be taken in a 7 day period.
Dr Moshe Feldenkrais preferred to teach people on a daily basis for the first 40 sessions, and I am sure this is one reason for his high success rate with “pupils” with more complex neurological issues such as Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, and other forms of brain injury. For an intensive course, extra lessons within the 7 day time period can be added at the same fee per lesson as per the appropriate package rate.

, to allow for 2 hours of travel time plus travel costs – I am happy to negotiate a package rate for blocks of lessons within a pre-agreed time period. In order for this to be practical I allow for a longer session, 1.5-2 hours, and provide extra practice suggestions to maintain the benefits of the lesson over time.
Potent Voice & Singing Tuition
per lesson – I am happy to discuss special rates for a batch of lessons over a specific period of time. Batches of lessons can include one Sunday Voice workshop (currently online) – example 2 x private lessons, and 1 workshop for £130. All my vocal workshops have shifted online for now, and the special rate applies. Details of these workshops are here
*I also offer hands-on Vocal Functional Integration lessons at the same rates as my standard hands-on tuition, please see above.
Please note all packages rates are to be paid fully in advance of the final session, in one or two instalments.
I am very happy to negotiate special rates on an individual basis with anyone interested in committing to regular sessions, as everything I have to offer you works better with dedicated involvement and regular commitment, so do not let financial difficulties keep you from discussing your situation with me.
I do not choose to penalise last minute cancellations – 24 hours or less – however should such a situation occur I do prefer that you rebook your appointment as soon as possible
Online Sessions via Zoom
Everything I teach is available online. I am currently using Zoom, which means that a recording of your lesson is included in the fee, and will be available to download.
I have decided to offer an online discount to anyone who needs it, rather than lower my standard rate for one-to-one sessions online, which is £70 for a 75 minute session (the extra time is necessary for discussion and feedback). This means my standard fee is only a “suggested” rate, and I am happy to accept a donation instead. I can accept payments via BACS, and, if that is inconvenient for any reason, PayPal.
