Sue's interest in the Alexander technique began when she started having lessons with Isobel Anderson in 2007, and from 2012-2016 she trained as an Alexander Technique teacher with Don Weed ( Founder of the ITMA - Interactive Training Method Association).
Since qualifying Sue has taught Alexander’s work to groups and individuals; she is currently a visiting Alexander Technique teacher at Goldsmith’s College in London and The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.
In 2019 Sue came across Karla McLaren's work on emotions when she read her book "The Language of Emotions - What Your Emotions are Trying to Tell You'. To deepen her understanding of this new way of relating to her emotions Sue studied Dynamic Emotional Integration® (DEI®) with Karla Mclaren from 2019 - 2021 and she is now a licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® trainer and consultant.
