Everyone has an accent. You may not notice it if people around you have the same one as you. Your accent may even change organically over time as you interact with people who have an accent different than yours. Consciously growing your accent portfolio can be fun and rewarding!
If you are a non-native English speaker and would like to reduce your foreign accent, I can help you shape yours into any native English accent you like. We will work on your speech patterns so you recognize them and will be able to change them over time.
Reducing your accent takes time and depends on where you start, where you want to end up, and how much time and effort you put into training your speech muscles. Accent reduction should be about creating options. Together, we will create those options for you, so you can decide yourself how far you'd like to go on your accent reduction journey.
It is your choice whether you'd like to keep a bit of your foreign accent charm or if you'd like to be incognito and perceived as a native speaker by others. Contact me to take your first step on your accent journey today.
Whether you're a native or non-native English speaker, I can help you acquire a new accent. Perhaps you learnt a "Standard British" accent in school but would like to change it up a little at work? Or as a performer you'd like to explore an accent for a character you play in your next show?
Acquiring a new accent does not mean eliminating your own. We're adding an accent, no replacing one. This means you get to explore and play around with different accents whenever you feel like it!
I specialize in European and North American accents. Do you have any specific region or actor in mind whose accent you'd like to adopt? Contact me today to inquire if I teach the accent you have in mind.
Your voice is as unique as your fingerprint. It is part of your expression and your identity. Voice coaching helps aligning the voice with
who you are and how you present yourself.
vocal expression and vocal health
Do you use your voice extensively for jobs such as a teacher or a social worker, but you feel vocally tired at the end of each day? I can help you foster habits to avoid vocal strain and to support a healthy voice.
If your work entails speaking to an audience like a radio host or a drag queen whose voice needs a certain resonant and expressive quality, I will guide you through exercises that help you improve your vocal skills and reconnect you to your uninhibited voice.
Together, we will work on resonance, breath, pitch and/or vocal health to support a free and grounded voice. Please contact me today if you'd like to remove any vocal issues that prevent you from exploring your full vocal ability.
gender and the voice
Do you wish to match the sound of your voice to your gender identity? Are you seeking a non-surgical approach to change your vocal characteristics? I’d be happy to support you in your transformational journey.
As a non-surgical procedure, gender affirming voice coaching can help you achieve the vocal quality that matches your identity. It is for people who are looking for guidance on how to adapt their voices, whether they have or have not already undergone hormone therapy and/or surgery.
Having a voice that doesn’t represent one’s gender might cause discomfort or anxiety and can lead to harassment or trigger gender dysphoria. You might feel that your voice is the missing piece to expressing yourself fully. To help with this, some people choose to have surgery or hormone treatment. Voice coaching can accompany both or be sought before any medical procedure.
Together, we will explore a combination of intonation, resonance and pitch to find the voice that is authentic to you. Changing your voice is highly personal and involves assessing your needs and expectations as well as creating an individualized plan with goals that are realistic and attainable to you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out today to talk about your desired voice.
theater, film & TV
Your accent on stage or on screen should be as authentic as possible. The aim is to feel comfortable and confident using an accent, be it your own or any other one, so when you're on stage or in front
of the camera, you don't have to think about it.

what other people are saying...
I worked with Ronja on a production of Little Women at Trinity Laban and her brilliant accent work with the students was instrumental to their performances, not only helping them develop their characters even further but to also give them the confidence to use their voices. Ronja's enthusiasm, communication and support to the creative team was fantastic throughout the process.
Let's face it - my English wasn't good. I work with people from all over the world and I have always felt stress and shame trying to speak a foreign language. From the very first class Ronja showed incredible patience and an unconventional approach to learning. She's a warm person with an open mind and professional in every way. Ronja helped me overcome my fear, I'm so grateful for the opportunity to work with her. See you in class!
Ronja is taking a personal approach and is following each client's needs individually. We prepared for my TEDx talk in the little time we had and looked at posture, vocal delivery and pronunciation. She made me feel much more confident going on stage. With Ronja, you will never feel like you are undergoing bookish learning. It will always be a tailor-made lesson with unique and precise techniques to whatever you need at the moment.
