ACTING/CAREER COACHING

I am launching an online support/coaching service for professional actors/actresses. This will provide a space where we can work 1-1 to enable your career to expand and to move forwards in a positive manner. Our shared knowledge and experience of being part of the world of dramatic art shows us how solitary our lives can be at times. How important it is to have a support network around us to help us

 

to stay focused and positive

to keep growing as artists

to prepare for the job opportunities when and as they arise

 

We need to be ready and confident for each audition that comes our way.

 

With this in mind I shall be offering online Facetime/Skype sessions (to fit in with your schedule and avoid lengthy travel times) tailored to your specific needs and ongoing support will be offered via WhatsApp outside of the sessions.

 

Support and development will be offered in the following areas:

 

Acting coaching

Last minute audition preparation

Monologues

Song preparation

Character construction

Script and scene analysis

Self tape auditioning and filming

Drama school entry preparation

Creative life coaching/mentoring - Goal setting, career strategy, breaking through habits to achieve the vision for your life and take your creative career to the next step.

COACHING SERVICE

FULL TESTIMONIES

Ed has coached and mentored me since my second year at drama school. Since then he’s helped me through my training: directing me in two projects spending one on one time in the rehearsal room with me to respectively focus on my process. Ed has also provided great support with auditions, or how to get the most out of time unemployed. He’s a great mentor and opened up a lot in me which then made me grab opportunities to grow as an actor and a creative.

AILEEN GONSALVES - ARTISTIC DIRECTOR BUTTERFLY THEATRE COMPANY

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Ed on a number of different projects over the past few years, and always look forward to the opportunity to continue collaborating and learning. He’s not only been a wonderful teacher, but a hugely supportive mentor through important stages of my development as an actor.. identifying my strengths and my weaknesses, and encouraging me to strive for excellence whilst embracing the struggles along the way.

 

Ed’s coaching and work as a Director is really informed by his own experiences as actor. He can relate to all of the ups and downs we experience; he knows first hand how our journeys inside and outside the rehearsal room shape our performances. I can always count on Ed to both challenge and nurture me as an actor, and it’s this patience and commitment to growth that makes all the difference!

MEL GLEESON - ACTRESS

"Ed has been coaching me now for a year and a half and I just can't say how much he has helped me. Working with him has enabled me to develop as an actress in ways that would not have been possible without his insight and direction. I cannot commend him highly enough."
