Communication in Healthcare Workshops

Did university prepare you to actually transform the lives of your patients and clients??

You know the science, the prescriptions, and the protocols you’ve seen work best in your field.


Connecting with your clients & colleagues, voicing your thoughts, navigating your appointment time and actually moving your client to action is a whole other set of skills.

I know this from my work as a dietitian in brain injury rehab. And I’ve become such a better practitioner since I’ve applied theatre-based skills to my work.

“I’m walking away feeling great and I have a bunch of new tools to help me better support my clients.”

That’s why I offer workshops that combine the art & science of a theatre-based modality in healthcare.

✔️ A serious confidence boost going into your next client session or team meeting

✔️ Tried and true exercises to up your communication skills either face-to-face or speaking to your audience virtually

✔️ A super fun experience to connect with colleagues and build better working relationships

✔️ A break from the mundane to nerd out on the science of theatre-based exercises in healthcare
