Performance Coaching in London with an experienced Acting Coach, here to help with your Presentation Skills, Leadership Strategies and Public Speaking.

Methodology

Sometimes we have to unlearn what we already know - or think we know - to move forward. Sometimes we do need to break what does not need fixing. Sometimes it just needs 'messing up' to find a new form.

These are tried and tested practices that have emerged out of my time working with actors on effective and open communication. I keep a sense of playfulness at the heart of my work to directly and gently challenge what we think we know; ultimately, to birth something better - with a gentle nod towards questioning what is 'better'.

Each session I undertake is bespoke because every client I work with is unique: you will always be positioned front and centre - your aspirations lead the work. I am not just here to help you overcome nerves or to gain confidence, but to increase the effectiveness of your communication.

I am here to get you operating as the best version of you - and on the best day possible.

Whether you are looking to increase your effectiveness in the virtual arena or in person-to-person exchanges, I have ways to help.

Experience

I primarily work with Actors - coaching them in a variety of contexts - to get them firing on all cylinders and showcasing the best version of themselves in stressful scenarios. In recent years, I have taken this approach and applied it to the world of business with a number of successful corporate clients.

I am here to ensure you blast that interview, nail that pitch and ensure your public speaking is on point - a confident delivery on its own is not enough. I will work with you not only to bring you out of your shell if required, but also to harness that energy and enthusiasm ensuring a positive lasting impression. Some people believe charisma cannot be taught, but with effective application of communication theory and time dedicated to intention (as well as confidence), you'll be hard-pushed not to exchange information and ideas with a dynamic ease.

Richard will go above and beyond; challenging you, sparking your imagination and developing the craft in a thoughtful, energised way. He has this rare combination as a director of being astute yet with a playful and committed approach which is personalised to each actor.

J
Justin

Richard is nothing less than an inspired tutor. He has extensive professional and teaching experience, a unique, playful approach to movement and actor training and is a kind and compassionate pedagogue. His classroom is a space for exploration, joy and rigour - there are few people who can combine these ideals with the consistency that Richard maintains. I cannot recommend him more as a trainer or coach.

O
Olivia

Richard is the one to go too. Practical, accessible, advice. He has the patience of a saint and is as sharp as they come!
His advice on movement for actors has been invaluable to my theatre company!

A
Andrew

Devoted academic and experienced practitioner. Will be one of the best.

I worked with Richard for a number of years and I can't recommend him highly enough

G
Gretchen

On top of his skill, experience and acclaim as actor and theatre maker, Richard’s care, insight, and attention to detail with students is remarkable. I’ve worked alongside him and have seen students thrive and grow after sessions with him. Jump at the chance to work with Richard!

S
Sophie

Richard has worked with me as an acting coach and colleague, I have found his insight into acting to be invaluable and could not recommend his services enough. The environment he creates is one of trust, play and inspiration. As a professional actor I would look no further than working with Richard as an acting coach to explore tricky scripts, breakdown a character and get being exploring physically inhabiting a character. His passion for the work is infectious and his generosity of knowledge is more than you could ask for.

Y
Yaiza

I have worked with Richard in the past in a long going project and for more than two years I have seen him excel at many different scenarios, not solely as the truly extraordinary actor he is but as movement director too. His input for devising, professionalism and lighting-quick flexibility made working with him a true joy and an incredibly enriching opportunity. Finally, his voice and masterful use of it is outstanding and having had the luxury of recording him in many occasions I cannot but recommend you do so too.
Work with Richard, you’re in for a treat.

H
Hughie

Richard is extremely detailed, insightful and incredibly generous with his teaching. I have worked with him on 3 separate projects and each time, I have been blown away by how attentive his methods are and how creative his vision has been.
Would highly and always recommend!

Y
Yik Sau

Richard is a very knowledgable and experienced tutor. I always feel what he feedbacks and suggests reliable. He’s very good at providing a safe and comfortable space for students to express their opinions. He’s such a brilliant listener. He supported and challenged the way I approached my learning material and at the end he helped me to improve a lot. Don’t hesitate to chat with him and see what he can help you!

S
Sidsel

I've worked with Richard several times over the past year, having been assistant directed by him and worked with him 1 on 1 sessions. Richard has an incredible eye for your individual needs, and a really deep understanding of a wide variety of methods. This means that you always leave with several new ways of approaching your work, and the confidence to further your work on your own. Besides, he always work with a real sense of play, so it's always a Lot of fun! Cannot recommend Richard enough.
