Principal Teacher

The principal teacher of the Edinburgh Alexander Centre is its founder Richard Casebow. Richard has been teaching since 1994 and is active within the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique (STAT) helping among other things to organise their annual conference in Edinburgh in 2003. Richard himself came to the Alexander Technique as the most effective form of self-help for dealing with his then recurring sciatica, a problem that had interrupted and ultimately ended his first choice of career as a Chartered Accountant.

Richard CasebowRichard had tried a number of approaches without success before starting lessons in the Alexander Technique. With its emphasis on how you do things and prevention it has allowed him to return to living a full and active life which includes swimming, running and hill walking. Other interests for Richard are food and music, particularly opera.

In addition to maintaining his large teaching practice within the Edinburgh Alexander Centre, Richard also practices as a counsellor and psychotherapist. He is a member of the Personal Construct Psychology Association and is registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.
