New Leaflets!

My new leaflets have been printed.  I’m delighted.  After many weeks of wanting to create some but not knowing which step to take first, a friend who is doing a photography course offered to take some photos of me – at short notice – 10pm for the next morning.  I said yes and texted a friend who said she would gladly come.  Photo shoot number one completed in 1 hour and the best ones were sent to me via email that night.

I had tried to get some leaflets printed earlier in the year and two emails to the local printer/designer didn’t get answered.  So I used the wonderful FB local business group to ask for recommendations for a Graphic Designer.  I had 5 responses, looked at all their websites and followed up with 3 who all replied within 5 minutes.  Overnight I narrowed my choices, made two phone calls and went with my choice of a designer who I realised I had seen a logo she’d done and liked that already.  I connected with the questions she wanted to ask me and felt she understood what I was after.

I had done various bits of research on how to put together a leaflet on YouTube and taken some tips from that and written my copy and my offer.  I knew I wanted a new logo, but didn’t think I was ready for that at this point.  During the process, it was created.  The strap line comes from a conversation I had with Dr Miriam Wohl.

The designer was very collaborative, she looked at my website, asked lots of questions and came up with a first draft.  We agreed on draft 6 and sent it to a friend/client who had offered to get it printed at work as part payment for a lesson.

Voila! :  

I realise this thumbnail doesn’t give exact text or detail, its an overview.  See the colours, the outlines, the shape, the professional look of them.

Its been a lovely process of people offering to help, me being willing to receive, getting clear about how I wanted it to look, and asking for and receiving help in terms of what words and offers went on the leaflet.  I love teamwork.

Thank you everyone!

What My Clients Say

“No pain in the night, no pain when I got up, no pain when I went for a run and no pain now! It’s much more than I expected, thank you! "

Steve

"It is as though I have been gifted an entirely new lens through which to view human behaviour, and it is a lens of compassion and empathy like no other. Due to this, I have been able to come to terms with the way my family operates, which has proven to be a great relief. I would definitely recommend working with Lucy. She held such a safe space for me and my vulnerability with great compassion and authenticity."

Elena

"Using these techniques has helped me reduce the day-to-day tension I’ve developed over a lifetime of anxious habits and hypersensitivity. It’s been amazing to re-learn how my body works, and how to swap out the survival mechanisms that got me so far, for habits more in keeping with how my body is happier to work."

Alex Booer

“I’ve been doing the Alexander Technique with Lucy over the past few months and my posture has improved enormously. I have a greater awareness of how my body functions and can recognise the signs of when I’m falling into bad habits."

Paul Tolton, Actor

"I feel present. Nice to feel here, not racing ahead. I have a more measured, calm approach. I’m less reactive and am learning to look after myself and choose my responses.”

Rosie

"I had a traumatic accident a few years ago. After you ‘wriggled’ my head it felt weird – and really good. I could walk evenly for the first time in years!! I’m making friends with my body.”

Zoe, Singer

"I have been happily surprised and have learned a lot about how my muscles and spine behave when I let them. I rapidly realised that AT is not in the least pseudoscience, rather it teaches one to be aware of how the body is holding itself."

Julian Davis, Retired Professor of Medicine & Pianist

"I've just had two enjoyable and useful sessions with Lucy on Zoom. I had been doubtful about how it would work but I was pleased with how it went. Of course, nothing is as good as face-to-face but we are where we are and this was great and has helped me to progress as I had hoped. Thank you. Looking forward to the next ones!"

Bev

"Lucy's sessions are amazing. Her unique blend of skills helped me have good posture without effort. Before this, I had seen many physiotherapists and osteopaths, but the pain kept coming back within a few weeks. Even after my first session with Lucy, the difference was so clear that my friends commented on it. After several months, the effects are being maintained with her support."
