My ambition as a child was to read poetry on the radio – admittedly, a niche career – this ambition was a result of a passion for the power of the spoken word which began very early for me and has never faltered. I love storytelling and the individuality of all accents and voices. I am an empathetic and encouraging coach dedicated to helping each of my clients discover their own easy style in order to communicate dynamically and calmly. It’s something we can all do once we have the right tools.
I have now been coaching for over 5 years, with a focus on accent work and presentation skills. I have an undergraduate degree in English and Drama at Birmingham University, as well as a Masters Degree in Drama (Acting) at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I have worked as an actress in the West End, on Broadway, for the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre, alongside many roles for TV, film, BBC radio, and most recently, recording books for Audible (which makes seven year old, Olivia, very happy!). I studied with UCL, Knight Thompson Speechwork and many world-class voice coaches to further develop the performance and accent skills I used as an actress in order to create a practice which helps my clients embrace their individuality and become confident communicators.
