My aim, first and foremost as a teacher, is to help actors develop a sustainable and healthy relationship towards acting and life. I was compelled to start offering actors what I felt was an area that was most overlooked in the industry yet the most helpful towards becoming a better, happier actor - Mindfulness
I offer bespoke private acting session as well as group classes aimed at approaching acting training through the lens of mindfulness and compassion.
For those looking for personal guidance or tailored acting sessions. These can include bespoke work aspects such as:
• Audition & Monologue Coaching
• Drama School Audition Prep
• Script & Character Analysis
• Mindfulness-based Actor Warm-Ups
• Awareness & ConcentrationTraining
• Meditation for Acting & Auditions
• Mindful Life Coaching
All acting methodologies have their merits but through filtering them through the principles of mindfulness we can see what, how and why each technique works for us as individuals.
I am a professional actor, director and acting teacher working privately and in drama schools across the UK. I trained at drama school myself and have been professionally acting for over 15 years and am the head teacher of both Play With Fire Acting Studios and Mindful Acting.
The first hour is £25 and then £20 an hour after that.
