Rachel is a director, coach and facilitator whose practice meets at the intersection of these three roles. Her facilitation work has included projects with the National Theatre, the Young Vic, Royal Opera House and the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme. She has a particular interest in access and has developed several pieces of work around creative access for theatres, drama schools and other arts organisations. As a coach and director, she has also created a strand of work around resilience and creative practice, and is keenly interested in how we sustain the wellbeing of arts professionals.

She is Associate Director at the Unicorn Theatre and on the board of Camden People’s Theatre.
