Beatrice Brooke, BA(Hons), PGCE, PG Dip(Voice), Mindfulness Practitioner
In the mid-nineties, Beatrice trained as a secondary school drama teacher before enrolling at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama on their Postgraduate Diploma in Voice Studies. She has worked for twenty years as a voice and accent coach, teaching in UK drama schools and in professional theatre, as well as in private practice.
Having experienced the benefits of Mindfulness herself following a period of illness, Beatrice resolved to learn to teach it, and is now approaching the end of a two-year Supervised Pathway in Mindfulness Based Approaches at the University of Exeter. She is experienced in teaching Mindfulness to members of the public, as well as specifically to musicians, actors and artists, and she is looking forward to coming to teach at Nine Springs. She believes that there is no-one who cannot benefit from what Mindfulness has to offer!
Beatrice lives with her husband and three teenagers in Dorchester. She continues to teach voice and accent at the Arts University Bournemouth and the Dorset School of Acting, and is currently teaching Mindfulness for Creatives on the AUB short course programme.
