About Caroline Chalk. UKCP REG.

I am a teacher of the Alexander Technique, Head of Training at the Bristol Alexander School, and am an accredited counsellor and therapist.

My fascination with how human beings can change and positively affect the quality of their lives started when I began having Alexander lessons at the age of 11.  I had Alexander lessons throughout my teens, going on to train as an Alexander teacher when I was 18 and then in my early twenties training as a counsellor.

I attended my Alexander teacher training at Dartington College of Arts, Devon qualifying in the early 1980s.

I teach in this country & abroad.  As well as teaching individuals I also teach groups in music & drama colleges, universities and in the business sector. I have a special interest in applying the Alexander Technique to horse riding and I have devised a course, 'Riding Inside Out', which I have been running since 1998.

I am Head of Training at The Bristol Alexander School. We run a 3 year training course for people who wish to train as teachers of the Alexander Technique. Visitors are welcome, please see www.BristolAlexanderSchool.co.uk for details.

After teaching the Technique for two years I went on to train for four years as a therapist at the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust, London, qualifying in 1990.
