Through careful questioning and deep listening, I get a sense of your personal obstacles, which may include core beliefs, habits, or fears. From here I gather ideas of the kinds of characters, archetypes, and scenarios that will allow you to practice exploring new and useful tools to help you live your most authentic life. I help you to integrate, body, mind, and heart through imagination, voice/breathwork, and physical movements, reclaiming the entirety of your instrument. This is an adventure towards inner expansion, flexibility, strength, and expression; I look forwards to accompanying you along the way.
This is where we spend the most time talking about your personal narrative. I want to hear a bit about your history, where you believe your strengths lie, what your day-to-day struggles are how you wish things were instead. This is where we get clear on the task ahead.
Through archetype, elemental work, yoga, and gym exercises I will help you to link body and breath. You will break away from the habitual stances that limit you internally or broadcast the wrong message to the world. Preparing the physical system for new ways of being is just as vital as preparing the psyche. We will fill your body with energy and power and remind your system what it means to be a present in your body. Warning: playfulness will be required.
I will find a range of scenes from tv, film, and theatre that address your specific needs for you to choose from. At its most basic, acting is "being truthing under imaginary circumstances." Through finding and expressing your truth as well as pinpointing the character's objectives and obstacles, you will practice forming new modalities and more options when approaching situations in life. We will free you from negative conditioning, showing your nervous system that in fact, you are the one in charge, not it. Your body doesn't know the difference between what is real and what is imagined, and with the right support, your nervous system can take the creative reins to heal itself.
Grow towards your potential as a human being. Experience meaning, vitality, awareness, confidence, connectivity, playfulness, and more. Take risks. Gain insight into humanity, find freedom from inhibiting beliefs or habits. Find out what it means to be authentic by cultivating awareness emotional complexity and expression. Break free from negative conditioning. Train yourself to live a bolder, more satisfying, truthful, and beautiful life.

Get out of the gray seminar room. No more PowerPoint presentations.
Sometimes trying new things can feel embarrassing, vulnerable... but I dare you to keep going. There are so many rewards for stepping out of your comfort zone, for bravely venturing into the unknown – freedom and self-worth are a byproduct of knowing how to be your own hero.
We may uncover some drama, but having a sense of play throughout our sessions is vital
Annelise is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
It has always been obvious to me that acting is more than a profession, it's a path towards the realization of our blueprints. It's a psychological and physiological practice; it can be a deeply aesthetic and honest approach towards gaining insight into our relationships with each other, the world, and the narrative that gives meaning to our lives.

Perfect! Annelise is empathetic, patient and has an ability to help me zone in and focus on what's important. Excited to see how these sessions develop my confidence to express myself.
Dal has a wonderful curiosity, an articulate awareness of himself and his emotions, and a drive to grow towards his potential. I am really looking forwards to working with him.
"I needed some support to prepare an audition and Annelise quickly understood how she could help me as a coach. She knows what she is talking about and uses all her different experiences as a professional actress. She is precise in her directions. She is clever and sensitive in analyzing the character's psychology as well as organizing the arch of the scene. She is super supportive and positive but she will definitely challenge you if she thinks you need more work. You can really count on her. She gives lots of freedom to the professional actor, creating an open space for experimenting and training. I really recommend her!"

"With the brilliantly selected sides chosen for you, Annelise will ask you to embrace your imagination and vulnerability in order to challenge or reinforce your choices and help you find depth and variety. She's encouraging, supportive, and will also tell you when she's not convinced. Annelise really brings the best out of the individual and I learn as much working directly with her as I do when I observe her working with the others. These classes provide the opportunity to practice our craft, as we should, and I always leave feeling focused, energized, and inspired."

Annelise is an amazing coach! As an entrepreneur with little stage experience, the most important things for a good presentation are confidence and authenticity. With her distinct empathy and quick perception, Annelise manages to take away your stage fright and get your pitch to the point. She helps with breathing, posture and appearance as well as getting in the right mindset. With Annelise as coach you will find a new comfort zone on stage and learn to be present calm and convincing!
I can highly recommend to train your presentation skills or stage presence with Annelise …
Annelise helped me practice taking up space and feel ok about it, even good. She gave me exercises to help me embody a powerful posture. She could see where in my body my energy was blocked and helped me to work through it. I was a little nervous but it was so much fun in end and afterward, I felt great. I would highly recommend her.
