Awareness, Acceptance, Choice

Fiona specialises in distilling her experience,

knowledge and skills and experience into effective real life applications to help people develop awareness, choice and manage change.

Over the past 40 years she has combined her own teaching practise in a wide range of community settings, with working in teacher training, mentoring and personal development for a wide variety of groups from small community groups to national organisations.


"As a coach I bring a somatic body awareness approach.  I support people so they can manage stressful situations, improve relationships, manage change, develop self knowledge, and present themselves in a way that reflects who they are, through developing more connection and communication with their body. 

I offer 1 to 1, or small-group work-based coaching.


As a teacher, I focus on embodiment, somatics, mindful movement, dance, health and well being. I work directly with adults of all ages......18 to 80+, also adults with learning difficulties, and adults who require adaptations for ability, health issues etc.  I train, mentor and coach movement and dance teachers through

one to one coaching, small group residential trainings, workshops and training courses."


She has created her own 'Seated Energy Moves' DVD, designed to meet the needs of those who need to sit and still be active, and her routine 'Grace' is taught all over the world by other movement teachers and available for students to use in their own home.


Fiona's previous work & training as an actor, dancer and choreographer, both in professional theatre and in community arts and health projects, help her bring a creative, fun, yet grounded approach to everything she does.

Fiona now has her own home studio where she offers classes,and coaching, workshops and trainings and hosts others (see Gallery for pictures).
