Does the Idea of Doing Drama Scare You Stiff?

If you’re someone who’s been to drama classes and couldn’t participate, Claire speaks about how she works with people who’ve had these experiences enabling them to free themselves from a lifetime (sometimes) of feeling inhibited, self-conscious and lacking in self-confidence.

Courses next start Tues 17th Sept @ 7.45pm  and Tues 24th Sept  @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 and nerves are the issue. I've had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

Courses start Wed 18th Sept @ 7.45pm  and Thurs 26th Sept @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.
