How often do you get the chance to give a speech or a reading? Not very often. Usually you get the one opprtunity when you are asked to give a reading at a friend’s or relation’s wedding or perhaps when you have to make that all-important presentation to a new client. That can be a daunting and nerve-racking experience. And unlike a professional actor doing a long run in a theatre you only get the one chance to get it right!

Often that can simply add up to too much pressure. How often have you been to a wedding and watched someone rush through their reading, staring down at the lectern and mumbling in a barely audible voice? And then politely said “Lovely reading” to them afterwards?

Using my skills as both an actor and an Alexander teacher I’ve helped many people with their speeches. In just a couple of sessions I can teach you very simple techniques which allow you to make the most your one chance. Whether it’s a reading in church or a business presentation make sure that when people say “Great presentation” they really mean it!

About Joe Searby

Joe had his first lessons in the Alexander Technique in 1983. After some years of lessons he decided to train as a teacher of the Technique and in 1995 he completed a three-year, full-time training with Walter and Dilys Carrington. Walter had trained with Alexander in the 1930s and was then F.M.’s assistant until Alexander died in 1955. Walter then took on the training of new teachers and continued to do this until his own death in 2005. In 2017 and 2018 Joe trained with Alexander teacher Jessica Wolf to teach her method of “The Art of Breathing”. Please see the Art of Breathing section for more information on this transformational modality.

What is Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique is a process for change towards ever-increasing health and well-being. It requires you to be an active participant in the process and to learn and practise the skills you are taught. Because of this it is not for everyone – more than ever people are looking for a “quick fix” for their problems. The Alexander Technique is not a quick fix. However, if you want something that is deeply meaningful and has the potential to transform you as a human being then give it a try!   Copyright © 2019 Joe Searby All rights reserved
