I am a coach working with teams and individuals on confidence, effective interactions, and cultural facilitation. I am Senior Lecturer at Voice Study Centre where I head up the Spoken Voice pathway as well as Associate Senior Lecturer at University of Wales Trinity St David's.
A Sustained Dialogue facilitator with over fifteen years' coaching experience, my earlier portfolio career incorporated work as an actor, singing teacher and in-house editor of both fiction and non-fiction.
Clients include executives, teams, arts professionals, and adults wanting to improve or develop their vocal communication. I have worked extensively with performers, children, and female survivors of modern slavery. My articles have appeared in Psyche and The Voice and Speech Review.
An alumnus of Cambridge University, The Oxford School of Drama, and University of Wales, Trinity St David’s, I engage in regular professional development. I am Associate Editor of The VASTA Voice (2023), becoming Editor in 2024, as well as Senior Advisor to award-winning narrative agency Bladonmore.
Working with conversation analysis, neuroscience and the creative arts, I support individuals and groups to understand and improve communication. Using voice, body and language, all underpinned with evidence-based research, my goal is to improve connection and meaning.
Whether effective questions and feedback, language and vocal emotion communication, trust-building and rapport, or leadership style, public speaking and vocal confidence, I tailor sessions and workshops to suit your needs. This ensures you, your team and those around you can engage in meaningful, confident communication, able to improve understanding as well as to regroup and repair if misunderstandings do occur.
