Hi there

Want to get started as soon as possible?

Join my next Introductory Evening on 10th December or 9th January 2020

A great way to get a taste of what to expect before joining one of my courses.

Or book for one of my courses:

The Breakthrough Group is the first step for many people - particularly if you feel shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety. I've seen some miraculous transformations in my 20 years of running this group.
Courses next start Tues 14th Jan @ 7.45pm  and Wed 22nd Jan   @5.30pm

If speaking up in groups, being heard, or any public speaking is your challenge, then the  Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start if anxiety or nerves are an issue. I've had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

Courses start Thurs 16th Jan @ 7.45pm  and Tues 21st Jan @5.30pm

"I don't know what to say" improvisation for social confidence is great for people with average confidence who experience some form of social anxiety or awkwardness but find themselves stumped with knowing what to say. Working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills.

Starts Thursday 16th Jan 6-7.30pm

You can book online for all my courses and events.

Book a telephone appointment with me or get in touch by email if you're not sure which course is right for you.
