About Me


I’m Sonya, and since completing my MA in Voice Studies in 2006, I’ve helped thousands of people from a variety of backgrounds to make the most of their speaking voice.

I’ve had a lifelong interest in voice, language and accents and was often found ‘doing funny voices’ as a child, so it’s no surprise I ended up doing this job!

Before I was a voice coach, I was a Business English teacher in France. I speak French and I know what it’s like to be on the learner’s side of pronunciation training! I’m originally from the Highlands of Scotland and have a few different English accents under my belt.

I’m based between London and Hastings, East Sussex. In my free time, I walk, sing*, read, write and travel.

*I am not a singing teacher in any way but I do enjoy singing for fun!

“I would recommend her in a heartbeat. I am very glad I found Sonya to help me improve my pronunciation.”

I've been working with Sonya over the last 15 months and I could not be more satisfied! She is incredibly good in terms of clarity and strategy based on specific requirements. I feel way more confident in terms of pronunciation, quality of my speech, intonation and pace. Highly recommended especially if you work in sales or jobs where you need to speak English on a daily basis!

The best place to work on your language skills- not only if English is your second language but also if you are a native speaker. Sonya is very professional and experienced. Highly recommended!
