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!
