Rebecca Thompson

Voice Coach

After studying Drama and English at Bristol University, Rebecca worked in Radio and Print journalism before deciding to take her LLAM  Diploma through the London Academy of Dramatic Art (Lamda), to pursue a teaching career. Now working as a communication coach, her role is to work alongside children and adults, helping them to find and use their voices appropriately and effectively in their respective contexts. Rebecca has worked in schools, businesses and in Adult Training and really enjoys identifying the needs of every individual and then enabling them to explore their full potential as a public speaker. She is also an Adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals, and on the team of examiners for Lamda Communication and Performance Exams.

Rebecca is firmly convinced that everyone has a ‘voice’ that can and should be used with impact in a public context.

“At Bristol Baptist College I really enjoy the length of time that I have to get to know every student and then work alongside them, so that whatever their personality and calling, I am able to support them in engaging with their vocal potential, and then draw on it creatively and confidently in their future role.”
