I work as an acting coach with professionals who want to revise their skills or break into new casting genres as well as with students who are auditioning for drama school. I offer one-on-one bespoke acting coaching, using a solid range of acting techniques and actor tools to support you in developing a role, addressing an audition piece, scene, script or any other particular acting obstacle.
The work done in our one-on-one acting coach sessions will be tailored to your needs and will usually be very specific in exploring the origins of original talent. I encourage each individual actor’s unique statement to shine through. I always place the truth and their ‘being’ state at the front of any work I do. Together we can ensure you create greater understanding of the piece whilst removing any emotional, mental or physical blocks.
I also work with business professionals at all stages in their career who wish to gain, or increase, their confidence in presentation or communication skills.
Whatever your level of skill or experience my one to one tuition can point you in the right direction.
Please note: working with an acting coach means you will get very specific and highly critical feedback. This is an important part of the coaching: it will make YOU better at what you do!
Regardless of your current level of ability, I will provide you with support and rigorous development coaching on the skills you need.
COACHING on auditions, including script breakdown; character development, including finding depth in character and script.
SCRIPT breakdown, including actioning your text, finding the subtext in film and TV sides as well as monologues.
MONOLOGUE work, including clear guidance in finding the right piece for your drama school audition from my extensive collection and carefully chosen to show you at your best.
EXAM PREPARATION work, providing you with excellent tuition in your exam pieces for all major drama exam bodies. From LAMDA to Trinity College London, I will support you in the development of your pieces.
Most sessions with me are on a one-to-one basis. These are private lessons. However, if you’d like to work with an associate or friend then I’m happy to see two of you at once – at no extra cost (if there are more than two of you, this would be a class and we will negotiate the rate).
Individual acting coaching sessions are very flexible and I can usually see you during the day, in the evening or at weekends. As I also work as an actor and director my availability depends on my current schedule, so we just need to find a mutually convenient time and day.
