I would warmly recommend Caroline Dale to anyone wishing to learn new habits of how to be in one's body and to improve one's posture. I find the sessions with Caroline relaxing, she has a special holistic way about her, and it's as if she bathes me in positive energy; I love it. I put the time in to do my homework and it seems to pay off. I feel lucky to have Caroline teach me Alexander's Technique, it is a new way of living.

I highly recommend Caroline as an Alexander Technique practitioner to work with for anyone who wants to improve their posture and eliminate back and shoulder pain. Caroline will change your thinking about how you do things to produce an uplift in your sense of wellbeing and awareness. She does this in a very supportive manner without being judgmental as with her expert guidance you relearn how to use your body and return to moving as you were anatomically designed to do – something our modern-day deskbound ways contradict. You will feel particularly relaxed after a session on her therapy table – the previous owner of which was Frederick Matthias Alexander himself.

I started seeing Caroline simply for postural improvement, but soon realised this method goes far beyond the physical—it's trickling into every area of my life, enhancing my awareness of how I relate to my body, myself and the world. I'm only 10 sessions in, and it's like a lightbulb has been switched on. It's hard to describe (or even understand) the simplicity yet depth of this method. I come away from each session feeling rejuvenated and calm—Caroline is such a wonderful teacher with a kind, loving presence. Suffice to say, I've been recommending her and the Alexander Technique to all my friends!

I was looking for something to help with my posture and a friend recommended to try Alexander Technique with Caroline Dale and I haven’t looked back. Caroline is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Alexander Technique. Her sessions are relaxing and extremely insightful. She helps make small delicate changes to the body but even more so to the mindset… these changes are showing in all different areas of my life. I leave the sessions feeling like I have had a chance to reset. I also definitely feel like my posture has improved but it’s more that my whole appearance is changing as my mind is in a much better place. Alexander Technique has exceeded my expectations and Caroline is delightful, positive, and an expert in this field. I can’t recommend Caroline highly enough. If you can give yourself this opportunity you 100% should.. it’s life-changing!

Caroline is a wonderful teacher and I can't recommend her highly enough. She is calm, kind, listens and has great intuition. I started working with her after suffering from chronic back pain for a year. Within three months my pain had considerably reduced. More generally, I have found Alexander Technique to have a very positive influence on the way I live my everyday life. I think it is an essential foundation for anyone navigating modern life.

Over many years I have had quite a few different AT teachers, but for me, Caroline is the perfect one. She has a very calming manner, is totally holistic and very experienced. My lumbar spinal stiffness seems to have improved considerably since going, possibly due to a number of positive changes I have made, but I am very happy either way. She has reminded me about using my body in the least stressful way and in all kinds of subtle ways, I feel much better. Her body alignment work on the table is nothing short of amazingly calming, so much so, that I leave her in a kind of peaceful trance. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline to anyone as I’m sure they would benefit from a course with her.

In a nutshell, don't hesitate. Just book a session and give it a try. I took my 11 year old to see Caroline out of desperation with our GP and the NHS system. He had developed a stiff neck from sitting in a strange position one day and it never quite cleared up. He was starting to move his head to relieve tension in his neck more and more frequently and it had become an unconscious habit. The GP had suggested physio as the only option and there was a 3-4 month waiting list. I had heard wonderful things about Alexander Technique but had no direct experience. Caroline gave my son a trial session and he decided he felt comfortable enough with her to book a course of 10 sessions. By about half way through, the neck pain and head movements had stopped. It was nothing short of miraculous and so much less invasive than physio. Caroline has a lovely, calming manner, she is sensitive to her clients' feelings and needs during the sessions and is non-judgemental when she explains about the bad habits we may have developed. She spoke to my son with genuine care and respect, and allowed him the space to feel comfortable within the sessions. Honestly, I was surprised at how effective Alexander Technique can be and I am also very grateful for the time Caroline took to explain the roots and principles of the technique to me. I would definitely recommend Caroline to anyone considering trying Alexander Technique for themselves or their children.

I initially went to see Caroline to help improve my posture. However, As my understanding of the Alexander Technique develops, I have found her skills have helped me on a deeper level and after my sessions I always feel energised and positive. By gradually recognising and undoing acquired habits, I find I am walking better and have less aches and pains. Caroline is a very calm and experienced teacher and a credit to her profession.

ONLINE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE WITH CAROLINE DALE. I have had several sessions with Caroline and when we couldn’t meet up for one, I asked for an online session to see if AT could help with the general tiredness I felt, rather than a specific issue. During the session I started to feel everything relaxing but at the same time I felt more energised than I had in days. I even felt my eyes relaxing, which was lovely! Caroline brings her many years of experience to every session. She has great empathy and a genuine concern fir the wellbeing of her clients. Thank you so much and looking forward to the next session.

 

 

 

About the Alexander Technique

At the core of the Alexander Technique is a simple truth; habits that have often developed unnoticed over many years and which are now causing pain, tension and/or an unnatural postural profile, can be changed.

‘We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence therefore is not an action, but a habit.’
Aristotle.

Using a holistic approach involving both mind and body, Caroline will show you how to change your habits and restore your health and wellbeing, so you can get on with the things you really want to do.

I found an instant benefit regarding the discomfort in my back. I also learned how to relax my body properly which has been very beneficial for ongoing health management and avoiding future problems.  I found the experience  nothing short of miraculous”. ME (June 2019)

Habits are like knots; they are easy to create but much more tricky to unravel.  Through a programme of classes involving simple, practical experiences and topic discussions, Caroline will guide you through the process of learning how to untie the knots and prevent new ones from developing. Once you start applying the principles you have learnt to your everyday life, the ripple effect will make everything you do more focused, enjoyable, and effective.

About Caroline

 

Caroline discovered the benefits of the AT after suffering from a frozen shoulder, RSI and stress.  She was so deeply affected by the health and other benefits of the work for herself, as well as its potentiality for helping others, that she gave up her profession as an International Art Consultant and undertook the 3-year full time AT practitioner training.  Caroline has helped a very wide variety of people recover from back pain, unwanted postural changes and tension related conditions  during the past 20 years. Her clients have ranged in age from six to 94.
