A qualified NLP Master Practitioner, trained in hypnosis and timeline techniques, I am passionate about my work. With an MA in Professional Voice Practice from Birmingham School of Acting in association with the RSC and a BA in Acting Studies from Manchester University I have a thorough working knowledge of voice and presentation - and all of the opportunities and pitfalls that go with them. I am also a qualified Prince2 practitioner project manager and have a great deal of business experience to draw upon.
I specialise in Personal Change, Voice Coaching, Corporate & Business Coaching and Dialect Coaching.
I am lucky to work with some wonderful clients helping them to achieve their personal and career goals or in their transition from being 'stuck' to moving forward once again. Voice-wise I cover most areas of the speaking voice, with particular success in helping people overcome their speaking fears or taking them from a passable performance to a memorable one - for all the right reasons! I also go into businesses and coach individuals and groups in presentations, voice skills, sales and performance coaching.
Aside from my successful coaching practice, I have worked as a voice/accent coach and professional actress for theatres such as The Royal Court, London, The Orange Tree in Richmond and Birmingham Rep, amongst many others. In my business life my roles have included working as a Senior Marketing manager, Senior Project and Communications manager and as a consultant. I have project managed strategic planning processes and training strategies. I have also led many business workshops & presenations on a wide range on topics.
With my background in the arts, I have worked with several well known clients and discretion is at the core of my ethos. I also work in the media, both print and broadcast as a personal change, NLP & voice expert.
I am fully insured and belong to the following professional bodies; the ANLP, Equity & Prince.
My reward is seeing my clients succeed and carry on to achieve their ambitions and goals.
I had never done anything like this before and was unsure what to expect. Rachel really listened to me, its like she just 'got' who I really am.
