Quite simply, I am passionate about all things to do with the human voice.
I gained a Linguistics and Phonetics degree from Hull University in 1988 and have worked with voice since qualifying as a speech and language therapist in 1990 (City University); since 2007 I have developed my practice as a vocal coach and have worked in a range of settings with people with both healthy and disordered voices from a wide range of professions.
My postgraduate qualifications include training in The Accent Method, Vocal Profile Analysis and the Estill Voice Training System (Levels 1 and 2) and my particular interests are breath and the voice, and also the ageing voice. I run a variety of courses (previous work at The Actors Centre, London and the Courtyard Theatre Training Company, London). I teach voice modules on yoga and counselling training courses, and vocal health to teachers in schools. I see clients at The Albany Centre in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
I’m registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, the Health and Care Professions Council, and I am a member of the British Voice Association and the British Laryngological Association.
