My coaching approach builds on the importance of analysing text, releasing the imagination, and enabling emotional availability. My work on set is based on what has been rehearsed and discussed prior to filming in collaboration with actors, directors & producers. I might work with young actors, amateur actors, actors from different cultural backgrounds with diverse customs to proximity or touch or I might rehearse scenes of intimate (character consensual or non-consensual) content with professional actors. Services that I provide include

  • Self-Tapes & preparation for auditions (in person or via Skype)
  • Scene study
  • On set coaching
  • Demo-reels
  • acting classes & workshops
  • Script & production consulting (film & TV)

The training methods of Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov and Laban-Malmgren are amongst my own favourites. Building on the established skills and approaches, the actor is then empowered to discover and identify the tools most suited to further develop their own work on stage and in front of the camera.

Class types

1:1 Coaching

I offer one-to-one coaching for actors and consultation of writers and directors that is tailored to individual needs.

Screen acting classes

It’s essential for an artist to stay interested, open and keep learning with others. In between jobs creative people can continue to work on their craft. As a coach I can offer source material, inspiration, collaboration and technical guidance in a workshop environment. We will explore different approaches to building a character and develop your screen acting skills. Advanced classes (small groups) are organised on demand.

In addition to above, Collaboration between actors and directors is encouraged and can be provided in a safe rehearsal space in addition to script consulting sessions for writers & writing teams.
