I trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and have acted professionally for 15 years, including Phoebe in 'As You Like It' at the National Theatre, the Young Vic, Shakespeare's Globe, and on BBC's 'Luther' and E4's 'Misfits'. Most recently I appeared in the stage debut of Mike Bartlett's 'Not Talking' at the Arcola Theatre.
I believe acting at its best is relaxed, playful and intuitive, but only when underpinned by rigorous and solid work. Whether you prefer to work physically, vocally, through text analysis, character work or various other techniques, being rooted in your acting will allow you to feel confident and flourish in high-pressured auditions or exams. You might even enjoy yourself...
My sessions are actor-led. I have experience working with all ages and abilities and tailor my work to suit you. I have a large space in which we can work, but am also happy to travel to you.
I coach students for both drama school and professional auditions, help source material for auditions/showcase, prepare for LAMDA/Guildhall exams, or simply allow students to keep their acting muscle engaged by working through our own carefully tailored programme. I've had many successful drama school applicants including RADA, LAMDA, BOVTS and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, as well as successful LAMDA exam candidates. I have also helped students obtain professional work across theatre, television and film.

Perfect! Gemma helped me to feel so much more confident with my audition pieces for drama school entry, giving advice and working through different exercises with me which really brought my speeches to life. She is a fantastic tutor who I'd recommend to anyone applying for drama school wanting both professional and friendly guidance.
I trained with Gemma for three years at drama school and so have witnessed her talent, professionalism and commitment in all areas. We have worked together on many auditions and self-tapes, and it's always been really helpful and made me much more confident. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for audition prep or acting coaching in general.
Gemma helped me prepare for drama school auditions and I got in! She is a brilliant teacher and I couldn’t have done it without her
