“I graduated from RADA with BA Acting .The best thing about Julie is that if you want help she will try her absolute best for you. I can personally thank Julie for helping me regain my confidence and for her support during my 3rd year of auditioning for drama school. Julie was there every step of the way and I couldn’t be more grateful. I honestly believe she played a massive part in helping me create my successful audition speeches and could not recommend a better teacher. Julie is a professional who passes on her knowledge and guides young people into the industry, but most of all she has experience as an actress and can empathise with any situation. Julie is a kind, supportive and genuine person who cares about her students and I can’t thank her enough for her help.”
“My time spent working with Julie has been invaluable in preparing me for auditions and performing on stage. Julie’s knowledge and vast performance experience translates into her teaching, guiding you in the best way possible to achieve a clear and in-depth portrayal of character. Julie gave me the confidence to realise my potential as a performer, encouraging me to always develop and push forward my portrayal of a character with each new piece. I feel working with Julie fully prepared me for auditions, helping me gain an unconditional place on the National Diploma course in Musical Theatre and Dance at Laine Theatre Arts.” Lloyd Davies

“Julie does not take away anything from you, she takes the strong elements of your acting ability and enhances them and helps you bring your own instinct and quality to a performance. I got offers from many drama schools. The feedback was that I made it my own, treated the text with respect and the performance was truthful. Julie was the biggest stepping stone for me to have a professional career. All I would say is – let Julie do her magic for you.”
Elgan Rhys – Amda BA Acting“Privileged is the word that comes to my mind when I think about Julie. I feel honoured and lucky to have worked with her. She has definitely, without a doubt, brought out the best in me and reassured me when I needed it. I can definitely say that I’m a different person having worked with Julie and have gained a lot more self-esteem and confidence. I can’t thank you enough Julie. Diolch, a cariad mawr.”
Becky Ormrod – MA Acting Course at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
“Julie is, without a shadow of a doubt, a complete and utter godsend for anyone wanting to attend auditions. From the very first meeting, Julie made me feel completely at ease and gave me the confidence and belief that I could do it. I have been in sessions with other tutors, where I have felt judged and uncomfortable, however with Julie she creates an environment where it is okay to take risks and gradually encourages you out of your comfort zone, until the pieces become raw, beautiful and different. I had four years of unsuccessfully trying without Julie’s help, and therefore I know it is Julie’s insight and knowledge that pushed me to the next level. It has been a genuine joy working with Julie, and I feel totally prepared for Drama School.
Giorgia Warsama – Guildford School of Acting Foundation in Musical Theatre.
Julie’s wealth of knowledge in the professional acting world shines through during your time with her and her positive energy and loveable nature makes sessions fresh and exciting. Julie’s tutoring was the key to my successful acceptance onto the Young Actors Studio course at the RWCMD and Bird College of Drama/Musical Theatre. Without her guidance I wouldn’t have been as prepared or confident as I was, and don’t believe that I would have been successful. Julie is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to plays and audition monologues and she has a talent for finding the perfect piece for you. She knows what works in an audition environment and she will help you reveal an inner confidence that will shine through during performance.”
Kate Griffiths – Guildford School of Acting MA Acting
Julie is truly the most inspirational teacher I have ever worked with. Her passion and skill shine through during every lesson. I feel so much more equipped to tackle the daunting drama school process than before, and she really treats each student as an individual so you know you are working on material that is right for you.”
