I am a professionally trained actress and qualified acting teacher. I teach LAMDA and coach students for drama school both children and adults. I love teaching as much as acting. I continue to act professionally to hone my skills. I also teach English at GCSE/A'levels and have been doing this for 10 years. I started 5D theatre company and have performed new plays at Brighton Festival and elsewhere. I have devised my own workshops for all areas - fun, educational, self-development and corporate.

My workshops are on the website. Will inform of any future ones.
