About me

Sarah ChildI live in Worthing where I work from my Alexander practice room in Milton Street.

For over two decades I have taught individuals the Alexander Technique. I also have over 8 years counselling experience.  I counselled adults of all ages at the Brighton Women’s Centre, with Age UK Counselling Service , and with “Action for Change”, an East Sussex Alcohol Counselling Service.

I came to Sussex in 1990 and love being close to the downs and the sea.  I recently moved to lovely Worthing.
In my life I have lived in different countries, and encountered a range of life-styles and Culture, from India to Europe.

My own life-style includes a practice of meditation and mindfulness.  I suppose, I was looking for a way to deal with pain and difficulties, a long time ago!  And that sparked off a life-long interest in the way our body and mind work together.

I first trained as an Alexander Technique teacher.  Becoming a qualified Counsellor followed later.  Both Alexander Technique and Counselling have given me more strength, power and compassion than I could ever have imagined.

Professional training

I trained full-time for three years at the Alexander Technique College in Brighton, from 1990 to 1993. Now, I regularly attend professional development training courses, lectures and workshops in order to keep my practice sharp and up to date.

My Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling was gained at Wealden College in Crowborough in 2011.  I have frequently practised counselling in the voluntary sector since 2005.

As a member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and of The Society of Teachers of The Alexander Technique I follow their Codes of Professional Conduct and hold professional indemnity insurance in both roles separately.
