About

I am a Voice/Accent and Dialect Coach,. I'm also a Life Coach with Counselling Skills. Before concentrating on working in the voice field I worked as an actress. I still dip my toe in that water every now and then. I love to help people discover their voices and what they can do. This is especially true when coaching accents. You can travel the world with your voice. I love language. Everyone has a story or two to tell, and I love listening to people tell their stories. I have a keen interest in Shakespeare, and delving into the past, into history. I like dogs, going for walks, going to the theatre, yoga, reading, listening to music, dancing. I have been known to climb trees, swing on swings, zip down slides! I'm DBS certified. I don't have a First Aid certificate. I see my role as a carer, as someone who always wants to help people do their best, bring out their best, be the best version of who they are. Listening, nurturing, facilitating, being there to help. Being a friend, companion, counsellor. Making sure that they know they matter. That what they have to say, matters. That their voices matter. AVAILABILITY: I am available on Mondays 8 am-5 pm, Thursdays 11 AM-5 PM. I do have some flexibility around other weekdays, MA Professional Voice Practice. Diploma Professional Life Coaching and Counselling. Post Grad Certificate - Dramatherapy. Memberships: British Voice Association. BVA Voice and Speech Trainers Association. VASTA Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists. (Senior Member) ACCPH.

About

I'm a Mum to two children aged 4 and 8. After graduating from University with a degree in Business Administration I then worked for many years in administration roles. After I had my children I felt a real desire to not be in an office but to be helping people, hands on. My Grannie sadly passed away and I thought about how she felt living on her own and how much she looked forward to people popping by. From then on I felt my calling was to combat loneliness, particularly in the older generation. I have a part time job as a Church Secretary but with the rest of my time I would love to be someone's companion. I have full UK driving license. I look forward to hearing from you. Ps I love a good jigsaw puzzle and board game!

About

Hi, I am Faz for short! I am really excited about meeting new people to give them time, effort and to better their lives! I work as a full time designer. I design kitchens, outbuildings and granny annexes. I love what I do. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people as i want to make sure everything I do is suiting their needs. I live with my partner and my 4 year old black Labrador. She’s very cheeky! I enjoy taking her on walks and giving her lots of fuss. Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies although I struggle to follow recipes it turns out amazing every time. Trying new flavours is my favourite! My partner is a baker for a living and I cannot attempt to bake. We love nature. Always finding new locations to drive to and love a good picnic. I enjoy change, I am always up for a challenge. Especially if I can make a change. Always up for a good chat. If there is anything else you would like to know or have any questions, please contact me
