About Barbara Paton

I trained and worked as a Physiotherapist for many years, specialising in the treatment of people with Cerebral Palsy.

My first contact with the Alexander Technique was in 1989 at a conference on back problems at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. One of the treatments being demonstrated was the Alexander Technique. I immediately recognised its benefits during an introductory session with an Alexander technique teacher and from then on, took lessons.

In 1993 I started training under Ray Evans and Ron Colyer at the Alexander Re-education Centre, Aylesbury, which is approved by the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT). On completion of the three year full-time course in 1996 I became a member of STAT and then studied for one term as a post-graduate with Elisabeth Walker in Oxford. At the same time I began teaching one day a week on the training course with Ray and Ron in Aylesbury.

I have been teaching independently since 1996 and continue to take lessons myself as well as exchanging work with colleagues and senior teachers. I regularly attended refresher courses at the Construct Teaching Centre in London until it closed down and moved to Imperial Wharf.

As a member of STAT I am required to conform to the Society’s Code of Professional Conduct and to hold an indemnity insurance.
