Information about Helen

I am a professional actor with a wealth of experience. I know what drama schools are looking for in auditions as I have sat on the panel. I am happy to advise on monologue selection, advice for the interview and constructive feedback on performance.

I am head of Learn and Train for Rough Fiction, a physical theatre company. We run workshops and residencies in schools, colleges and universities on devising and physical theatre.

Freelance I have taught in schools across the UK as a drama Specialist, focusing on GCSE and A Level qualifications.

In business I work with teams and individuals as a freelance coach and facilitator. I specialize in effective communication and am certified by Thomas International to deliver PPA. Clients include: Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Bentley, Sony, Royal Mail and many more.

I am from London and based in Waterloo. I am interested in exercise, galleries, theatre, film, spirituality and vegan chocolate!


Availability: Flexible: daytimes, evenings and weekends.

Willing to travel: 4 miles

Experience: I have coached students from 14-50 years old, in a variety of areas including: how to get into drama school, improve their public speaking, looking for a career change, A-Level and GCSE Drama and Theatre studies, speeches and those who have never acted before.

As an actress I trained at the prestigious Drama Centre London, (Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Emilia CLarke etc) and won the Alan Bates Award for most outstanding newcomer after graduating. When I played Madame Bovary in Breakfast With Emma, I was nominated for best actress and was the first woman to play Hamlet in the South East of Europe.
I have toured the world and performed in the Old Vic and Westend with actors such as Kevin Spacey, Diana Rigg and Rupert Everett. TV experience includes leads in series for the BBC, ITV and US. Filmes in Cannes and recognition from FIlm International. I am currently filming Call The MIdwife and about to play Lady Macbeth for the award winning Antic Disposition in London.

I have experience in everything from influencing and persuading skills, managing up, personal impact, story telling, flexing your style and presenting with impact.

Had a really useful session with Helen working on sight-reading skills for a specific audition. She was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Would absolutely recommend her as a drama teacher.

elen has been a fantastic audition coach for me! I was in need of help with choosing my audition speeches for drama school. My first audition was at the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts for the one year intensive MA Postgraduate course. I walked into my first ever audition feeling more confident than ever. She advised me on great contrasting speeches and made my speeches come to life.

The panel re-directed me in the recall and i wouldn`t have been as confident if it wasn`t for the practice with Helen. I was prepared which is important and preparation is key! I received a call 2 days after my audition day saying that I got place at Mountview! Absolutely thrilled!

I`m not sure the outcome would have been the same if it wasn`t for the few lessons i had with her..it made all the difference! Helen will give you coaching to suit your specific needs. Even by just having one session, you`ll see the difference in your speeches and performance..she`s great!
Good luck to all you folks applying to drama school!

Thank you once again Helen :)

Helen has been a fantastic audition coach! I was in need of help with choosing my audition speeches for my drama school. Helen taught me how to be in the moment of the character which aided my performance hugely. I walked into my first ever drama school audition feeling confident and with the help of her, I managed to get a recall from the Mountview academy of Theatre arts for the Postgraduate MA Acting Course.

She also gave me advice on the interview technique and I knew how to respond to the panel when asked with the questions.

The lessons are great, engaging and fun. Even by just having one session, you`ll see the difference in your speeches and performance!

Thank you Helen :)
