I facilitate 1 on 1 coaching sessions for actors and non-actors addressing aspects of performance & presentation. Drawing on 15 years of experience creating, directing and performing in theatre I support students in gaining Self confidence on and off stage.
Sessions are each tailormade to meet the needs of the student/client. Subjects I frequently cover are: voicing the authentic voice, public speaking, approaches to Shakespeare, Audition technique and drama school mock auditions. I also work with expressing emotional context that may be blocked and getting in the way of allowing you to be your fullest, most balanced and whole self and life coaching/Mentoring is often an element of the work. Each session is crafted to the individual’s needs & takes place in Brockley, London. Although I can travel to meet you.
Frequently asked questions:
"How many sessions do I need?"
That depends on you, your needs, and what you can afford. I always meet people for a 90min introductory session. To see if we work together. Then most people have 6-8 x 2hr sessions. We can be very thorough and cover a good amount of ground in this time. Some students come for much longer and some just a handful of sessions.
"How much does it cost?"
I operate a sliding scale price. The Student/low wage rate is £45/hr or £80/2hrs. Standard rate £55/hr or £100/2hrs. Corporate rate is £80/hr or £150/2hr. Most people pay in cash on the day.
"What days can I come for a session"
I see people Monday - Saturday between 10am and 6pm. If you can only make evenings or Sundays, I can work around that with enough notice.
"Can we meet on skype?"
Yes we can. But it's not ideal. Some areas of the coaching I do are possible on skype but the bulk of the work needs to be done in person.
What previous Clients & Students have said:
“I´ve put in practice all I´ve learned with you.
Last Friday I was asked to do a goodbye speech, I was caught by surprise and had not prepared anything. But I took deep breaths, made eye contact and just spoke. I was happy to see that they found my jokes funny -and even things I did not think were funny generated laughter and smiles.
It was a great feeling and it´s all because of our communication sessions. Really, many thousand thanks for sharing your knowledge with me" - Solicitor
