Improve your vocal ability with professional coaching

With training in Voice Studies from Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and a varied performance career, I can help you overcome whatever vocal challenge you’re experiencing.

What I teach

Accents & Dialects / Breath, Articulation & Resonance / Voice & Text / Character Voicing / Approaching Voiceover Work

Who for

RADA, LIPA, Arts Ed, East 15, ICAT, The Actors' Guild and The Actors' Lab, with recent accent and character voice coaching work as heard on BBC Radio 4 and for Hat Trick Productions.

How it works

Sessions can take place at my bespoke voice studio in Manchester or at a venue of your choice. I also work via Skype if you live somewhere far away and exotic, like America. Or Norwich.

Discretion is my middle name, so don't worry if you'd like your coaching to be kept a secret because you're dead famous and that. (Brad Pitt, I'm talking to you… Call me). Get in touch here and see how I can help.

Nic also runs Voice Workout - regular voice training classes in Manchester and Sheffield. Check out the details and buy tickets here.

Get in touch if you are...

  • An actor needing help mastering an accent for an audition or maintaining vocal health in performance

  • A teacher, feeling vocal fatigue after a long week of classes

  • A comedian working on a new character voice or seeking additional vocal strength to get through #EdFest

  • A business person, nervous about a big presentation on the horizon

  • A voiceover artist who could do with a bit of extra technique in the booth, more vocal stamina or a few tips for creating character voices



I got my first recall for a US series after Nic helped me with my American accent. The producers never questioned that I wasn’t a native! I would highly recommend Nic as a dialect and voice coach.
— Denise Welch, Actor
Thank you for your work on Love Song - it’s been great working with you & there’s been such a clear improvement in the cast’s dialect work.
— Charlie Kenber, Director
Nic was a delight to work with and I came away from every session improved and energised.
— Caimh McDonnell, Comedian & Author
Nic combines amazing technical knowledge with infectious passion and enthusiasm - a killer combination. I find sessions really useful & come away with specific tools and techniques to try out, rather than just general, wishy-washy advice.
— Hannah Croft, Actor & Comedian, BBC Radio 4
Nic delivered a truly amazing voice workshop to our acting students. She not only gave them the skills they needed but made them feel completely at ease, mixing her knowledge with humour, which went down a storm. Feedback received from the students afterwards was the best by far for a guest tutor. I would highly recommend Nic and will definitely be inviting her back.
— Louise O'Leary, StandBy Method Acting Studio
I asked Nic to help me with breathing issues I’d developed over a period of time during my voiceover work. She gave me some specific exercises to bring my breathing ‘back to basics’. The techniques Nic taught me were simple but very effective. I would highly recommend Nicola if you’re looking for a voice coach. She’s friendly, professional, knowledgeable & above all, great at what she does!
