Born in 1959, I studied Math and Technic, which gave me a strong liking for reasoning and solving problems. By 1986, I ran my own communications company, helping French high tech companies translate scientific concepts into plain ideas.

My interest in the Technique arose in 1980 through reading a scientific paper by a dental surgeon who recommended it as a ‘unique solution to the coordination’s problem.’ I subsequently ordered FM’s books. In 1992, I moved to England to study with Ray Evans and Ron Coyler (qualifying 1997), assisting Ray for three more years. During this time I translated and published FM’s four books into French. In 2006, I started a training course in southern France and continued to devote my time building a scientific understanding of Alexander’s writing and developing psycho-mechanical procedures for working with people with severe psychophysical handicaps (ASD, DCD, epilepsy, brain injuries) and with or without verbal language. Three scientists influence my work: LS Vygotsky (pedagogy, methodology), AR Luria (Neuro-psychology), NA Bernstein (bio-mechanics). Due to this work, my pedagogy has been transformed. Today, I teach using hands-on only with pupil with severe cognitive disorders. Otherwise, I teach using language and geometry in French, English and Spanish.
