What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked as an actor in theatre, TV, film and radio for 10 years and have applied this to my teaching experience. I have worked in the following drama schools: ALRA, Bristol Old Vic, Mountview Theatre Academy, Fourth Monkey, Central School of Speech and Drama and the International School of Screen Acting. I have also coached actors for television production companies, as well as being part of the voice team on the RSC's Matilda the Musical in the West End.

I enjoy using the same skills to coach non-actors to best develop their communication skills. I have worked with teachers, politicians, doctors, bankers and civil servants to encourage them to access their full potential when communicating.

I charge £60 per hour for sessions in North London. For group bookings of 5 sessions, the price goes down to £55 per hour, for a group booking of 10 sessions, it goes down to £50 per hour. There are discounted rates for newly qualified graduates.
Where do you teach?
I offer sessions from my home in North London. Sessions can also be arranged at your home, office, or in Central London, for an additional fee.
When are you available?
I am available weekdays and some Saturdays. Evenings can be arranged, as can Skype sessions.

All ages and abilities.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I continue to further my professional development attending workshops and courses. Recently I attended the Fitzmaurice Conference and am currently attending courses on Voice and Estill with Anne-Marie Speed.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I want everyone to love their own voice. To enjoy it, to feel it expresses them, to let it represent them at their best.
