Without wonder and insight, acting is just a business. With it, it becomes creation.

ACTOR COACHING

Working as a Talent Manager for over 10 years as the Managing Director of ‘Reflections Talent Agency’, and as a performer for over 20 years, I have a wealth of industry knowledge and can help guide entertainers to unlock their full potential.

I started in the industry as an actor at the age of 14 and have a variety of experience in the entertainment industry; ranging from producing films to acting in; commercials, films, stage, television and mentoring up and coming talent of all ages. All this real-life experience I bring into my coaching.

The free 30-minute consultation involves an informal chat to get to know more about you and your experience. Using my coaching background I can then adapt how we work to best suit the way you communicate. This will help you take on more information and learn more easily.

For those who are beginners or with little experience. The first full sessions are a bit like a crash course in acting. Whereby I will be testing all your skillsets to see what your strengths and weaknesses are.

 

What I learn from this first session will then be used to guide our future sessions and the work you do in-between sessions. I will always set you tasks to work on outside of the sessions so that you are constantly learning and progressing.

Those who have more experience in acting and are looking to work on specifics areas. This can be discussed at the free consultation. The full sessions will then be adapted to suit your specific needs.

Also, DBS checked I am able to work with those 18 years and under. A guardian signature will be required. Also qualified to Level 3 in Teaching and Training (AET).
