Public Speaking & Confidence Building Coach
Hello and welcome to my website.
I have been a life-skills coach for over twelve years and I have to say that I love it!
I am also a professional actor from London, I trained at The New College of Speech & Drama and completed my Masters Degree in Acting at the University of East London. After attending University and mastering my craft, I then put into practice what I had learned. I have worked steadily for many years on stage and then returned to university to train as an educator, I have worked in further/higher education as a drama specialist and public speaking coach.
It was at this point, that I realized how transferable the performance skills and techniques that I had acquired at University could be adapted to support others from non-performance backgrounds.
So when I was given the opportunity to run a short evening course for adults in Public Speaking and confidence building, I jumped at the chance and never looked back!
To help you I have put together a short list below of the core life skills that I constantly adopt in my practical workshops to support clients from various cultural backgrounds:
*Developing effective communication skills
*Build your self-confidence
*Public speaking skills
*Accent training for clarity
*Use vocal skills to convey a message effectively
*Adopt positive body language
*Create a real presence in front of others
*How to deal with those horrid nerves
I provide workshop training to both large & small groups as well as private 121 support in the above-mentioned areas (this can be done either remotely or in person).
I have been fortunate to work with many people from various professions which have included: Nurses, Lawyers, Actors, Bankers, Educators, and Media Professionals as well as those entering the competitive job market for the first time, as well as those clients who are switching careers all together and require support in preparing for the transition.
My one-day workshop is usually (6 hours) and my evening workshop (2 hours) usually runs over four weeks, All workshops take place in a central London arts venue.
I am happy to tailor individual workshops to meet the needs of clients. If you would benefit from any of the above or have questions, Please do not hesitate to get in touch using the contact form-I offer a FREE 15 consultation to assess your needs.
I personally believe that it is never too late to learn new skills, so take a breath, step back, embrace a challenge, and be a better you!
