There is nothing more exciting and rewarding than the palpable feeling of others responding to your expression – to make people feel and think, laugh and engage. This is what drew me into the world of theatre and what ultimately led me to become a voice, accent and communication coach here at London Speech Workshop.

After completing my BA at Arts Educational Schools London in 2010, I have gone on to work in theatre all over the world, including the National Theatre, across London’s West End and overseas. My passion for all things voice took me to the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where I completed my MA in Voice Studies in 2021 and have been teaching and coaching in a number of different settings for a range of different people over the last few years.

Accent-softening work has been one of the most fulfilling aspects of my practice. Meeting people from all over the world and facilitating a discovery of finding oneself within a second, third or fourth language is a real joy to me. As well as my teaching experience in some of London’s leading drama schools, I have worked alongside world-class voice/accent & dialect coaches and have provided effective communication coaching for business professionals across London.

I feel extremely privileged to be part of the team of brilliant coaches here at London Speech Workshop and take great pride in helping every client become the best communicator they can be in every aspect of their life.

The LSW is highly recommendable. It's an easy and flexible process. Speech coach Natsha Neeson was recommended to me by the LSW after completing the taster session. I agreed to go with Natasha and it couldn't have been a better match. The five sessions were insightful, knowledgeable, therapeutic, fun, and full of good energy. Natasha intuitively picked up on my subconscious goal (which I didn't communicate) as she observed my progress. This is a beautiful quality in a coach.

I took 10 online lessons at the London Speech Workshop with Kate Guest to soften my accent. Kate is a great tutor and her lessons are very efficient! She is also a very friendly and approachable person. During our lessons, Kate focused on my needs and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Kate as she is an expert in what she is doing!

I had 15 sessions with Finn Hanlon, who is an excellent coach. Finn tailors the sessions to the personality and needs of his clients and makes sure that they all get the best out of these sessions. He has coached me to become much more confident when communicating with others but, most importantly, he has helped me become more confident with myself. It has been a great experience and I am very thankful!

Working with Finn over the course of 3 virtual sessions was challenging and achieved the precise outcome I was focused on, a promotion! He was astute in his observations and diligently prepared on the topic and context. I look forward to working with him again before too long.

An extraordinary experience with LSW, from the moment of inquiring about their courses through the whole coaching time. I've been working with Finn and what a transformative and personalized treatment. Ah, not to forget about their super office team: Claire, Laura, Harry, and Niamh. I highly recommend London Speech Workshop.

I recently had the opportunity to participate in the London Speech Workshop course and I cannot say enough good things about my experience. The course provided me with a confidence boost and structure that I never thought was possible. My coach, Finn, was an amazing supporter and truly embodies what it means to be a customer-centric professional. He tailored the course to my individual needs and provided continuous support throughout the entire process. The course itself was well-structured and provided me with the tools and skills necessary to improve my presenting abilities. I appreciated the hands-on approach, which allowed me to put what I learned into practice in a supportive environment. Overall, I highly recommend the London Speech Workshop course to anyone looking to improve their confidence, communication structure and ability to connect with audience. The supportive atmosphere, knowledgeable instructors, and tailored approach make this course a must for anyone looking to take their skills to the next level. Thank you, London Speech Workshop, for providing me with such a memorable and valuable experience.

I've just completed the effective communication course with Becky and I would highly recommend. I noticed the difference super quickly within a few weeks. It's forced me into really good habits, made me aware of how I can improve, and now I have tools at my finger tips that make a real difference

In only one session with Mr. Finn Hanlon, I’ve learned far more than I imagined I would! He assessed me in a very kind way, and gave me very useful tips and tricks that instantly work - and actually I’ve never heard of these tips before! I do struggle with shyness a little bit, but Finn was incredibly helpful and warm and focused on encouraging me. I already feel so much more confident about my interview in the future. I really look forward to my future sessions with him. Thanks London Speech Workshop! 😊🙏🏼
