Testimonials

To get an insight into Nuala and Don’s work, you can read some testimonials from clients who have experienced a range of their services and wanted to share their story:

Last night I mentioned I had had a moderate to severe headache all day, and you offered to ‘tap’ on it.
Reluctantly I agreed, being tired and ready to take a (rare) paracetamol. Just tapping along in itself was quite painful, so I went half-heartedly at it. Quite soon to my surprise the pain reduced considerably, but did not go away. I was then asked to try to bring it back as strong as I could. Sure enough back it came with a vengeance, up to 8 out of 10. Not feeling at all good I worked on with Nuala, and within a couple of minutes I was freed, and able to get to sleep with no problem, waking up still completely clear.

Thankyou

Following a string of unsuccessful job interviews, I approached Nuala for help preparing for my next interview. Such were the resultant improvements to my both preparation and interview technique, that I not only got the job but was commended by the company for the high quality of my interview performance. I cannot thank Nuala enough for the skillful way in which she helped me to turn my interview technique around. Her assistance was more than worth every penny!

I really appreciated you took the time to let me experience the tapping work you do.

The tapping experience for me has made me believe more in myself. I have gained confidence and been able to see that there are some things that no matter how hard I work will not turn out the way I intended. During the experience I did feel a massive amount of release and although I felt very emotional, it was a positive experience for me. I’m unsure why I felt so emotional at that time. For a while afterwards when I was worried or feeling stressed I would tap myself and repeat the encouraging statements you had me repeating during the experience. This helped me cope with the stress I was experiencing at the time.

I feel much more confident in my role and although I’m still learning every day I’m not hiding behind the “ I’m just new to this role”. I feel after this experience I turned a corner, a bright new corner, where I believed in myself and that, in fact, I have the ability to carry out his role effectively. I am able to speak out more in large groups, although this still needs a bit of work!! (Childrens Home Manager a 20 minute session.)

I first heard of this technique from a horse riding magazine, which ran several articles on the subject, detailing how better balance and posture could improve one’s position on a horse. Being a keen and regular rider, this seemed particularly relevant, and having a bad back (as with most riders!), this led me to booking a series of lessons.
The simplistic description of what the Alexander Technique seeks to achieve belies the fact that so much is involved, once one gets started! The first lesson involved lying down and sitting up. Not difficult? Neither is the Technique, but it requires much thought to apply the process, and if benefit is to be gained, practised in between each lesson. I found myself, even after two lessons, applying the Technique at home, standing, sitting, moving, in the car – and of course, on horseback! It was a revelation, becoming so aware of one’s position, and realising that what we perceive as being fact is in fact not so at all – and thus the process begins, of effecting change for the better!
Apart from becoming a more balanced rider, another unexpected benefit arose last week. During a heated discussion at the desk between two angry people, I intervened, but not before remembering my directions “let the neck the free…….” Etc. The effect was dramatic. My posture changed from cowed and insignificant, to authoritative and confident – it was actually remarked upon by colleagues after the altercation, which was calmly and successfully settled.
Alexander Technique – it’s just about sitting up straight isn’t it?
Not a bit of it! I’ve learnt more about myself in the last month than I would have thought possible (even the backache’s gone!) and would recommend it to anyone who has a desire for self improvement.
Many thanks to Don White for his patience and clear explanations and his wonderful sense of humour – thank you!

About a year ago my activities were considerably curtailed for six months or so as a result of a “silly” fall. I am in my eighties and was told that it was probably caused by the loss of sense of balance as one gets older. I wasn’t prepared to accept such a defeatist attitude and signed up with Don White for a course of Alexander Technique instruction. It is taking many months to alter the postural habits of a lifetime but I am beginning to enjoy more control than I have ever had over my freedom of movement and comfortable balance. The teaching has also made me aware of the neatest and easiest way of carrying out all the everyday movements of life such as sitting, standing, walking or lifting. In answer to the question “What can you expect at your age?” I would say that by studying the Alexander Technique I can expect to feel wonderful, better than ever before in my life. I only wish I had had that salutory fall seventy years ago.

What Nuala White does with exceptional precision, passion & purpose is ask the tough questions, the ones you may have been avoiding! This causes you to take a hard look at what is in front of you, how you present yourself and how effective you are at achieving what you want. Nuala White helps you consider perceived failures and use them for positive growth. For me she was able to show me how the ‘written me’ on my CV did not match the ‘written me of my writing’ or the ‘physical me’ standing in front of her. She asked me questions and gave plenty to consider than enabled and empowered me to make the necessary changes to succeed and thrive. Without doubt I not only recommend Nuala White, I HIGHLY recommend her. Her expertise and empathetic and compassionate use of her skills allowed me to open up a new world of possibilities.
