Hello and welcome to my page. I am a voice and dialect coach who has worked across Theatre, Film and Television. I am based in London and the South West of England but work across the UK and internationally. I am available to work with actors and non-actors across the globe preparing for presentations, interviews, auditions or productions, in person and online as well as for on-set and ADR coaching.
As an experienced dialect coach in Film and TV, having worked with some of the best known names in Hollywood, I know how to persuade your audience to listen.
I offer a dialect, voice, speech and communication skills, specialising in accent coaching, accent softening, presentation skills, vocal delivery and language for actors and business professionals.
COVID – 19 UPDATE – 18/03/2020
All courses are currently online via Skype; FaceTime and, ZOOM for groups.
I am very conscious of working together at this difficult time and would be very keen to hear from you to discuss how I can offer support and help to navigate us all through the fog. We are in this together.
Relax and unwind
My aim is to put you at ease and to assess areas of tension which may be causing vocal issues, and to make sure your voice and accents are in optimal health.
In order to be a good communicator, your breath, body, voice and delivery need to be relaxed and toned. My approach will enable you to become present, in the moment, impactful and memorable, be that in an audition room or in a conference room. All communication: no matter how formal, or informal – should be an enjoyable experience and exchange for both you and your audience. I want the experience to feel somewhat therapeutic; full of positivity and for you to come out feeling refreshed and revived.
I coach with a supportive, nurturing approach, and work with each individual’s learning style and energy to give you space to experiment, play and achieve their goals in a relaxing and energising environment. Where appropriate, techniques of meditation and mindfulness are brought into the courses in a highly practical way.
Courses cover dialects for actors, drama and acting for adults and children, audition preparation, accent modification, effective individual and team communication, interview technique, persuasive storytelling, public speaking and presentation.
So if you wish to soften your accent, prepare an accent for an audition, boost your confidence in public speaking, or conquer any other vocal challenge, I can help you find your voice.
