The Confident Actor: Building Confidence & Ease

Do you find that you are held back in your acting by lack of confidence or by tension or by both? Do you have a loud inner critic trashing everything you do? Do you find you become self conscious in auditions and even in classes in a way that stops you doing your best work. Do you suffer from nerves or performance anxiety?

Then join me for the six week course. You will learn tools to manage lack of confidence, nerves and anxiety, self consciousness and physical tension so that you can access confidence and ease even in the most difficult situations and feel free to create and play.

The Skillful Actor: Building Your Actor’s Toolkit

Do you feel you have no clear way of working on a speech, scene or character whether for a self tape, live audition, rehearsals or filming? Or do you feel that you have so many ways of working that you now feel overwhelmed? Would you like a clear method which you can customise to build your own personal toolkit?

Then join me for this six week course. We will build key tools in relation to breaking down a speech or scene and making the text your own, finding subtextual shifts so that you can approach any text with confidence an begin to build a nuanced performance that is both deeply truthful and highly engaging.

Do you feel that you are held back by limiting habits and beliefs? Do you feel hampered by anxiety and stress or by low mood and lack of motivation? Have you tried many ways to resolves these issues?

Then join me for this five week course.
