I direct, critique, give voice coaching and teach on the methods of Constantin Stanislavski and other practitioners to help candidates refine a presentation that reflects their own tastes and personality. I encourage students to explore style, form, character, subtext and context in order to realise the specific demands of the text. We work together to develop their skills in voice, diction and movement. I focus on developing their presentation skills so that their work is exemplified by naturalness and fluency.
I trained as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. I worked professionally as an actor for over ten years. I am now a screenwriter and teacher. I have many years of experience as an Acting Coach and Drama Workshop Facilitator, including over four years of experience teaching LAMDA and Trinity College Speech & Drama and Communication Skills in secondary schools.
In 2013, I won the Funny Women Award for best stand-up show at the Edinburgh Festival. During my acting career, I worked at: National Theatre, National Theatre Live, Regent’s Park Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith, Sydney Opera House, Manchester Royal Exchange, Royal Court Theatre, New Wolsey Theatre, National Theatre Studio, Leicester Square Theatre, RADA Enterprises, Cambridge Arts Theatre, The Watermill Theatre, Traverse Theatre Edinburgh, Bath Theatre Royal, Lyric Theatre, Salford, BBC.
My experience as a workshop leader and acting coach for Adult students began on the QM2 in 2008 when I was a RADA actor in residence, performing plays on board and offering acting workshops for adult passengers. When I returned, I continued my coaching work in a freelance capacity, assisting young adults with drama school audition speeches and adult actors with coaching for roles they are playing professionally.
