Storytelling Coaching

Alice offers one-to-one coaching sessions for individuals wishing to develop their storytelling skills. Sessions can take place in person or by video call.

You may be a budding performance storyteller telling folktales and legends, or a professional wishing to integrate storytelling into presentations and communication at work, or maybe you work with children and want to grow as a storyteller in that way.

Alice can help you develop confidence as a beginner, or help those with more experience advance to the next level.

Coaching sessions explore

  • storytelling presence
  • voice, projection, and breath
  • characterisation
  • movement and physicality
  • story structure
  • language

“I chose to ask Alice to coach me because I knew I would be safe in her hands. She never told me what to say but asked me questions that made me think about the characters in my story and what they might do in any situation. She helped me think and feel more deeply about my story: I found it particularly helpful to learn how to use  archetypes to get inside the characters and make the dialogue more believable.” Jackie Carothers, Storyteller

“My session with Alice was very helpful, fun and effective. Alice’s empathy, perception and imaginative approach really helped me to dive ever deeper into the story I was working with. Challenging me to explore the story from the edges of my comfort zone, she nevertheless always took good care of me, encouraging me to trust my own instincts and style. Hope I can work with her again.” Catriona Blanke, Singer Songwriter and Storyteller.
