I highly recommend Barbara Gillman! My second eldest daughter, Skye attended speech and drama lessons with Barbara and went from strength to strength whilst under her guidance. Barbara is a professional of note who takes a very keen interest in her students. She instills confidence and self assertiveness in them too and is willing to do whatever it takes to bring out the best in them. I cannot recommend Barbi highly enough. When no-one else believed in my daughter, she did and today my daughter is about to enter her third year as a BA Dramatic Arts student at WITS.

“I recommend the Voice Perfect workshop as a great way to combine acquisition of new (and very important) skills, a team build and a way to break the “daily grind”. Within only 4 hours, I could see a definite change in the way some of my team members were using their voices.”

Barbara  ran a presentation workshop for small business owners. Tremendous skills were gained by all and most attendees feel more confident to present.

Barbara is a natural born teacher, she has the necessary patience and motivation to bring out the best in a person. She really goes the extra mile for her students and encourage them to push themselves beyond their comfort zones. I for one would have never known that I am capable of directing a play if it was not for Barbara, she believed in me even when I was finding it hard to believe in myself. She helped me to do my LTCL in one year with a full time job and the best part was that I passed it with very good marks. Teachers like Barbara is very hard to find as very few really knows how to bring out the best in their students.

Many thanks for everything
