- What kind of experience do you have?
I have extensive coaching experience in all aspects of communication. I have worked and continue to work with a hugely varied client base and use a unique blend of techniques to create a bespoke course programme for each client. This is key to enable each individual to achieve their specific communication goals, be this in regards to their accent, an upcoming interview, presentations or more general communication.
I find that having trained as a professional actor, I have a great skill set to bring to my communication coaching, which clients always benefit from. I have worked across TV, radio and stage, as an actor, presenter and voiceover artist. Clients include Sky, Nickelodeon, Disney and Global Radio to name a few.
Being a working actress means my skills are always kept up to date. Previous to drama school training I gained all of my LAMDA grades (grade 3- Diploma) and also hold the Bronze and Silver grades in RADA Shakespeare certificate. I have taught LAMDA exams both privately, and at Portland Place School, and have also helped potential drama school students with their audition preparation ( with a 100% acceptance rate!).
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Perfect! Bethan has, in just a few sessions, made a huge difference to My sons absolute to speak in public. His initial objective has been achieved but I’m sure we will continue to ask Bethan to support him as he continues to develop this aspect of his interests. Many thanks to you Bethan!
Bethan always listens to what you want to achieve and every session has helped with my progress. 10/10
Bethan was really great at making me feel comfortable, I really felt like she was supporting me in each session and I now have all the tools to continue to improve.”
Really good... able to quickly identify areas of improvement, then having the correct tools and exercises to work on the identified areas. Learnt techniques that I can take away and work on”
Bethan was amazing; very good for intense courses. She is very energetic and keeps you awake after a long day! She is very good at teaching and demonstrating how to improve oneself”
