With twenty years of experience teaching young people, I know exactly how to nurture them to bring out the best in each and every student.


confidence coaching for students

I can work in groups of up to 80 young people or on a one to one basis. Previous students have attained high grades in their LAMDA public speaking exams (with 95% achieving merits to distinctions) as well as preparing and delivering speeches to up to two hundred people. I have most recently lead full day workshops for government funded, NCS The Challenge, for two seasons leading workshops in public speaking for up to eighty young people.

I have worked within mainstream education delivering workshops in mental health, including mindfulness, forum theatre and storytelling. For more information about whole school workshops and experience days please go to to find out more about what I can do for your school.



Before I started LAMDA Public Speaking, I was pretty shy and I didn’t have the confidence. Through working with Miss Gilbert, I’ve become a more open person, able to express my opinions. Miss Gilbert has helped me with my public speaking in front of big audiences or even a small room of people. Being a black young girl in a state school is hard. Thanks to this work, I created my own goals and dreams and I’m working towards them happily. I am now Head Girl in 6th Form and I am a part of Southwark youth council being the voice for Walworth and my borough. Working with Miss Gilbert has contributed greatly to my journey.

Walworth Academy, Year 11-13 Student

Kate had fantastic facilitation skills, and worked well with the wider staffing team, constantly aware of YPs needs and made relevant adjustments. She was really good in terms of dynamically adjusting the session. One YP on the autistic spectrum wasn’t keen to speak initially but by the end of the day was motivated to speak.
