Sarah: “When I first began public speaking, I was so nervous I felt disembodied, had no connection to the audience and couldn’t remember how I had started the sentence I was in!”
Drawing on a combination of my theatre skills and the Alexander Technique, I can offer people skills in the art of speaking.
By learning to release unnecessary tension we can:
- Develop presence, power and connection to the voice
- Become more grounded, coordinated and centred
- Overcome debilitating nerves to embody poise and confidence
- Claim the space and connect with the audience
- Have clarity of intention and connect with our material

“Sarah is a fantastic public speaking and performance coach. She helped me line by line, manage a deep fear and anxiety in preparation for a large presentation. She was patient, present and had fantastic techniques to guide me through. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to friends and colleagues wanting to maximize their presentation skills.”
