The school taught group and private classes all over South Wales for students aged 18 months to 80 years. In 1985 she set up The Play Machine Children's Theatre Company which toured shows and workshops to schools, festivals and celebrations. Helen is one of the few people who have attained the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art Associate Public Speaking Diploma (ALAM). She is a member of Equity and the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama. She is a committed Christian and cat lover.Over the past quarter century The Cardiff Academy of Speech and Drama has trained many hundreds of clients with a wide range of needs. Helen's work now focuses on private tuition and in-house corporate training. She very successfully treats stammers and speech impediments, works on accent reduction and softening, trains actors and public speakers and enters countless candidates for LAMDA examinations at her own centre. She was one of the first teachers to enter candidates for the new RADA Shakespeare Certificate.Helen's methods have been tried and tested over many years. Not only are they highly effective, they are also very enjoyable. Many clients come for help with speech problems and when these have been rectified they continue with the sessions as a leisure activity as they work through the examination system. Adults of all ages enjoy polishing their skills on a variety of verse, prose, acting and public speaking exercises. It is always Helen's aim to ensure that every client achieves the very highest standard possible, no matter what their starting point.Availability of private classes is very limited due to their popularity. There is usually a waiting list for tuition, but one-off two and three hour intensive sessions or corporate training can be arranged outside of normal teaching hours and usually at very short notice. Live online Skype sessions can be held through the day with international clients. Please contact us to discuss availability.
