What do you want to achieve?

For most of us there's something that gets in the way of what we want to achieve or how we want to feel. That might be pain, illness, injury or other physical limitation, habit, low confidence, stress and mental health issues, or just the lack of the right method or skills.

I have over 30 years experience as an actor, director, teacher and coach and have developed my own way of very successfully working with these limitations and helping a wide range of people from all over the world.

One of my greatest joys is helping people find that connection within themselves, and with others, that enables them to reach their true potential and better move towards their goals – whether that be managing physical or mental pain, landing an acting role or place at drama school, giving a public presentation or leading a team in business, overcoming shyness or a speech difficulty. There are so many ways that working with how you use your voice and body can be so transformative.

The Alexander Technique

A Technique for Living and a Technique for Life

The Alexander Technique is a highly practical means of allowing you to experience what it is like to 'get out of your own way'.  It underpins all that I do and I will work with you to determine the best approach for you, but whether you want to get on stage or just get in the bath without pain, I encourage you to come along and experience it for yourself.

It's all in the experience!

Preparing to audition for drama school, Quintin has a huge understanding, is very focused and practical and really helped me get to the heart of the pieces and make that all important connection.

Sam Benthall
Student Actor

Success in my working life has always been tinged with a dread of public speaking that I could no longer avoid. I feel very lucky to have been recommended working with Quintin; he has worked with me very practically to strengthen my voice, engage with what I am delivering and better connect with my audience. My colleagues in the office have noticed a difference as well.

Ted Howden
Operations Director

I have learned such a lot about my habits of speech and movement and my confidence has improved immeasurably. Quintin has a genuine love of working with people and a very engaging manner!
