Shereen- Rada trained professional actress (RSC, National Theatre, West End) offers one to one public speaking coaching.

Methodology

Having worked with the best voice coaches in the country, I aim to guide my clients in recognising their full potential as effective communicators at work and at home. My approach is gentle and holistic. I use all the voice and presentation work I learned at Rada with Jane Boston and the techniques I've picked up from coaches like Cicely Berry, John Barton, and Jeannette Nelson, voice coach at the National Theatre. I also adapt my approach to suit my client's needs. It's wonderful to see them find their voices.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been coaching clients in the corporate sector and within the NHS for about 6 years now on how to become better communicators. My favourite part about this kind of work is witnessing the growth in confidence that is a by product of the vocal and physical work we do together.

As an actor, this year I have been working on 3 ITV series and an NBC/Universal pilot. Last year I was in the West End, before which I was working at the Royal Court Theatre. I have worked extensively as an actress since leaving RADA in 2002 in theatre, television and film.

Most importantly, I teach alongside my work and therefore bring a wealth of current knowledge to my sessions. I aim to pass on to my clients what I learned from my voice and presentation training at Rada and from the top voice coaches I've worked with as a professional actress.

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

When I started working with Shereen, I had no idea of just how incredible the experience would be. Not only did she help me really unpack my chosen audition speeches, Shereen completely changed the way I approach and consider text. I've found that after working with Shereen, my appreciation and understanding of drama is exposed in a new light—something incredibly exhilarating and encouraging for an aspiring actor.

c
cont.Molly Wheaton

In the past I've found that my self-consciousness sometimes gets in the way of my work, but Shereen was able to tackle my hang-ups and teach me ways to overcome those fears, even to use them to add depth to my speeches.
Seeing Shereen made me excited to dig in deeper and do more work, to push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of—and every time I needed reassurance that I wasn't mad for wanting to be an actor, Shereen was there.

cont.Molly Wheaton

I cannot express just how much I appreciate her guidance and leadership, or her friendship. Not only did I leave Shereen having secured a place at LAMDA, I left with a greater understanding of myself, confidence to push myself, and a beloved mentor. I have no doubt that without Shereen's guidance I never would have gotten as far as I have, nor would I be so confident and eager to tackle the next chapter.

I approached Shereen through the Tutor Pages when applying for drama school requiring assistance on the two monologues I would perform at audition. She advised me on suitable audition pieces, and guided me through ways to pick ones out in the future...

Nadine

..She then analysed the text in a way I previously had never seen done, explaining how to decipher thought patterns and the underlying issues of each speech.
She taught me breathing exercises which I now use whenever rehearsing, and have made my voice clearer and stronger.
On top of this she also made me feel confident in my abilities as a performer. I would recommend her to anyone.

Abby

Working with Shereen has been incredibly helpful. I've been able to identify both my strengths and weaknesses and find what methods work to bolster them. The support I've been given hasn't felt formulaic, but personal, and the work and exercises we do individualized. Yet I also feel that what I've accomplished is my own. I haven't been told exactly what to do, but been guided into making such discoveries that I might not have on my own.

A
Abby

...I went for help on preparing for auditions, choosing pieces, working on them, filling out applications, which I received wonderful support with, but I also feel I've grown as an actor. I don't feel just prepared for auditions, but more prepared for the actual prospect of drama school.

Hannah

Shereen is the most inspiring, encouraging, talented and caring teacher that I have ever had. She takes a very supportive approach and has helped me to understand my strengths and weaknesses, encouraging me to challenge myself to develop into a more confident, self-assured and truthful actress...

c
cont..Hannah Powell

..In preparing for my drama school auditions, Shereen helped me to choose two suitable monologues. She takes a very holistic approach, so we worked on bringing the material to life through exploring the text and character through voice, physicality and imagination. Without Shereen's support I would have undoubtedly been too consumed by apprehension to apply to the top drama schools. I am so grateful to Shereen for always believing in me and I would recommend her to every aspiring actor.

Interview with Shereen

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you start acting? How did this passion find you?
Shereen — My first play was in school, The Plough and the Stars, and I was hooked. I was unsure until that point whether I was going to study medicine or train as an actor but that play put medicine to bed!
QUESTION 02 | 08
Which artists or works affect you the most?
Shereen — Right now, and it changes of course all the time, Michaela Coel has changed the way I think about the boundaries of television. Ivo Van Hove's production of A View from a Bridge took my breath away and the original Girl From the North Country at the Old Vic with original cast did the same thing.
QUESTION 03 | 08
What are the qualities and skill required to succeed in this area?
Shereen — Talent obviously but sometimes people talents are obscured by a lack of confidence or a lack of focus and generally these things can be found in just a few sessions. Also, perseverance, resilience, a desire to do it no matter what.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What is the most valuable advice you can give to help someone stay focused on creative projects?
Shereen — If you love it it will take all your focus so no advice needed.
QUESTION 05 | 08
How would you describe your passion?
Shereen — Like something compulsory. I had no choice in the matter.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What creative achievements are you particularly proud of?
Shereen — I've worked a lot but I am probably most proud of the more collaborative work I've done, when the atmosphere in the rehearsal room or the atmosphere on set is one of collaboration, no small players, just everyone working together for the common aim- to create a captivating piece of theatre/television.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Have you ever been surprised by a student; by their ability or quick progression?
Shereen — I had a student once who would find a space to work in between our sessions and so she would come having made huge leaps and bounds without me. It is not always possible for students, some don't know where to begin on their own but I think the work you do alone is imperative to the process of getting into a top school and realising your full potential.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Being a Superprof is an art! What is your secret?
Shereen — Shaping the sessions to my student's needs- each student is very different and requires an individual approach.
