"a real investment in my career"
Dr Faith Taylor (University of Portsmouth)
Cyphers' work is all about being comfortable and adaptable on stage. We know these skills are also incredibly helpful outside of a theatre context. So we've set up Cyphers Communicate to help you feel more comfortable, confident and at ease.
We specialise in working with lecturers, teachers and academic staff. We know how much talking you have to do in a day! It's tough - really tough. So we're here to help.
By sharing the vocal techniques and exercises that actors use in training and to warm up before a show, we work with you to improve your breath control, projection, and confidence.
So whether you're losing your voice over the course of a long term, struggling to reach the back of the room, or wanting to speak with more authority - we can help. All these factors have a huge impact on our confidence and ability to clearly communicate our ideas. We're here to help you feel more at ease in front of your class or your fellow members of staff, so that you can enjoy sharing your skills and knowledge with the world!

This an opportunity for you to get to know us and us to get to know you. A quick, informal chat to hear what you need and what you want to focus on.
If you decide to book a further session this means we can hit the ground running, knowing exactly what your needs and concerns are.
This is also a chance to counter that nagging doubt. Pick up the phone, get in touch and let's have a chat!

This group session is a great way to get to grips with the fundamentals of your voice in the company of fellow lecturers, teachers and academics.
In a relaxed setting we'll give you some of the tools to better understand your voice, complete with exercises you can take away with you. Plus, we'll give you access to some of our online resources - with useful video reminders for exercises and suggested 'workouts' that can be slotted into your daily routine.

If you want some focussed one-on-one time, we're here to help!
We can come to your university or school and work with you face to face. This is undoubtedly the best way to see marked improvements in your voice, confidence and clarity when teaching.
Book in as a one off or set up a personalised session plan.

Can't arrange to meet in person? No problem! Let's meet remotely.
We can do one-on-one sessions via Zoom or Skype. You'll still get the benefits of a face-to-face session but from the comforts of your own home.
