Pat Brown has been studying the technique since 1986 and qualified from the North of England Teaching Centre for the Alexander Technique in 1994.
Prior to and during her three years training, she spent nine years working in an educational unit for people with profound learning difficulties. She used an approach developed by Dr Geoffrey Waldon, whose philosophy is based on the fact that all meaning comes from movement. She found that this approach complemented Alexander's ideas and the Technique helped her to look after herself and her pupils while she did this exacting but rewarding work.
She has been a member of STAT Council serving as treasurer, secretary and Professional Conduct Committee Coordinator. She now coordinates Continuing Professional Development
