Phil provides training for adults new to storytelling, teachers and service providers interested in using storytelling in their work. Workshops focus on developing essential storytelling skills: learning and remembering the story; making a story your own and basic performance techniques and are designed to meet the needs of those participating.


West Wales Action for Mental Health works closely with Phil. All the workshops we have have had have been fantastic and everyone really enjoyed them. We have had excellent feedback from all attending. Phil is such an amazing storyteller and trainer.  He is an inspiration and a very knowledgeable and experienced storyteller and teacher, and he ensures everyone is included and valued in the sessions, and encourages people in a caring and compassionate way.

Phil's engaging, dramatic, passionate sharing of stories from around the world held the children enthralled for nearly an hour. No mean feat with 9 to 11 year olds. Their faces reflected the drama of the stories as they followed every twist and turn of the magical worlds he took them to.
