Do you ever feel frustrated about your voice?

Would you like to develop your voice so it truly expresses your thoughts and feelings?

Would you like to have more power and energy, better vocal health, more range and expression, more ease, more clarity?

Whatever aspect of your voice you’d like to develop this is your chance to do so in a small group setting where the sessions are tailored around your specific goals.

These sessions will break through any blocks you have about your voice or about voice work.

I have worked with many people who have had less than positive experiences in voice classes or who have lost all confidence in their voice or who are frustrated that no one seems to be able help to them.

I've been through this myself and I know how to turn it around so that working on your voice becomes a positive experience and your voice becomes a powerful tool and support for your acting work.

The Inner A-Lister: Clearing Limiting Habits & Beliefs

Do you feel held back by limiting habits and beliefs?

Do feel hampered by anxiety or stress?

Would you like to rewire your nervous system so that you can access more calm and joy?

Would you like to remove blocks so that you can live a life free from struggle, worry, and exhaustion, with the energy to fulfil your dreams?

Then join me for these 5 online sessions starting at the beginning of June. Working with the felt sensations in the body rather than at the level of thought or emotion you will learn how to rewire your nervous system and unwind limiting habits and beliefs so you can live from your true, expansive, present self rather than your past limited self.

I am the only qualified SOLignment Breath and SOLignment Embodiment Practitioner in the UK and only one of two Practitioners in the whole of Europe. I have gone through a thorough, in depth training over two years and I’m now training as a Lead teacher to deepen my knowledge and teach future SOLignment practitioners.

I've been able to use my breath to let my body know that it's safe. Focusing on the 'good place' and using my breath to calm my nervous system has been a game changer in my life - Marged

The sessions enabled me to revisit long past emotional/traumatic incidents safely, so that I now viewed them from fresh and curiously more sensitive perspectives. Consequently, I have felt better able to move on with my life and embrace change - Peter

The sessions have really been transformative…They have helped guide my choices in terms of who I spend my time with and where I want my energy to be - Molly
