I started working with Sarah to start the process of changing my life, by pursuing my passion for acting. Sarah not only guided me through all the different options I have to fulfil my dreams but also coached me through many issues that were holding me back. She helped me with self confidence, overthinking, self love and much more. Sarah’s acting coaching was very informative, professional and direct but also fun and relaxed. I’m looking forward to continual training with Sarah. G. Sanderson
