Voice & Accent Training
I'm a UK (NW) based voice coach with national and international clients
I was born in Stafford to Geordie parents and grew up in Sheffield
Much of my childhood was spent drawing, doing gymnastics and running around the crags with my dog.
I wanted to be a vet or an artist; I became an actress
I'm proud to have worked with Howard Barker and the award winning Wrestling School Theatre Company, "the most important buildingless company in Britain" (The Independent)
I spent 6 unforgettable months travelling in India and Nepal on the back of a motorbike and made some life long friends on the way
I trained as a voice coach in 2003, realizing my fascination with accents
After over 20 years in London I moved in 2004 to the countryside
I have an inspirational partner and two awesome children who never cease to challenge me
I have over 30 years experience in the industry
I can't not exercise and do yoga, cycling and Cavewoman training
I love learning and researching (being nosey about everything)
I've had the privilege of being taught by some of the best in the voice world; great teachers and great mentors. I've worked with many talented actors, committed professionals and enthusiastic novices. The work I do is always about the relationship; it's a two way process and the results grow out of that relationship.

A great teacher and superb coach!
David Carey: resident voice and text director at the The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, former senior/principal lecturer in Voice Studies at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama
I’ve been having lessons with Caroline for a few years now and I’m still enjoying them as much as my first lesson. Caroline is a fantastic teacher and has a lot of patience! I wouldn’t want to be taught by anyone else.
Sarah Gayton: actress, writer, model
Working with Caroline has been very rewarding. She has helped me to grow as a performer and as a human being. Thanks to her I've found a new voice within me and also has boosted my confidence to perform in English as a foreign actor.
Gerardo Cabal: Actor
Caroline is superb! That's it. Work with her if you have an opportunity.
Yvonne Morley-Chisholm: voice teacher at Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare's Globe
I just wanted to share that I did a voiceover this afternoon, and my voice is really smooth. It’s rich and deep, and I don’t feel tension at all. Guiding me to use my diaphragm and getting away from the tension in my throat has been a game changer among many things you’ve taught me. Thank you... You are brilliant at dissecting exactly what I need to focus on with breath, resonance, my vocal folds, tongue placement and putting it all together to create the perfect natural sound with my voice.

You can't change the nature of your instrument but you can learn to play it well.
