After training as an actor at the Metropolitan School of Theatre, Manchester, I worked widely in Repertory Theatre, and for Granada, Yorkshire and BBC Television and on Commercials and Voice-Overs.
I have an MA in Voice Studies from the Central School of Speech and Drama and the Certificate in Speaking Skills from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. For several years I trained and facilitated in Communication Skills for psychiatrists, GP’s and medical students at many of the major teaching hospitals.
I train business clients who wish to build vocal and communication skills and improve their presentations. I coach professional actors in accents and dialects, audition and text preparation and also work frequently with foreign speakers keen to improve pronunciation and reduce accent.
the real speaking company has promoted personal and professional development through voice and accent coaching for ten years. I believe in providing lively training that will help build a speaker's confidence and clarity and maximize their energy and immediacy with an audience. The training is always sensitive to the clients' needs. Sessions can be one to one or in small groups and are held in a relaxed and creative atmosphere. Course materials and exercises are provided.
