With an acting background herself, , Natalie understands the needs of an actor and the workings of a film set environment and totally understands the workings of a theatre production and the time pressures involved.

Actors are always incredibly complimentary of natalie's detailed and understanding approach and how she helps connect the accent work to the intentions of the characters.

Reference from Maxine Peake -Actor

I have worked with Natalie as a Dialect coach on several occasions. She is my go to dialect coach of choice. We have tackled accents such as Liverpool, North Walean, Scottish and German.Each time I have seen quick and consistent results.
No accent is out of bounds for Natalie. She makes great informed choices relating to your character and is a stickler for detail.

Diction and understandability are key in her work. She works hard and is very thorough.
On set she is a joy. She will remain in the ‘background’ until needed. She never forces herself upon a situation. Natalie is sensitive to the workings of a set and also the pressures actors are under.
I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Extremely actor friendly, considerate and a true professional.
