Presence, confidence, courage and creativity are at the heart of all successful businesses, yet these states can be strangely elusive in the corporate environment. Everyone knows they’re essential but how do we cultivate them? When we stand in front of a group of others, whether they be colleagues, bosses or employees we want to be able to do so while embodying poise, confidence, dignity and authenticity. But how do we get there?

Testimonials

"We secured Daniels services as part of a vocational Core Company residential training week 'The Legacy Programme', seeking to explore and deepen our practise as performers and creative professionals. I was impressed by the thorough way Daniel explored what we did as a company and adapted his knowledge to suit our working methodology. His approach was extremely 'can do', flexible and professional, devising targeted workshop training that was both interesting, challenging and practical to the group, a number of whom had no experience of mindfulness or who were challenged by the concept. The experience offered a number of us exploring techniques to bring more mindfulness to both our working and personal lives.  Highly recommend Daniel as a trainer and we aim to work with him again."

"We used Daniel to help deliver a couple of virtual meditation sessions as part of a health and wellbeing event we delivered for a client. Daniel was easy to deal with in the lead up to the event and flexible with his session content and delivery to ensure we found the best solution for the client. Daniel’s session was well attended and well received on the day and feedback was overwhelmingly positive. We would be happy to work with Daniel again on other events in the future and can recommend him if you’re looking for someone to deliver a successful virtual meditation session."

I’ve been to Dan’s classes before and this is my second lot of film scene study classes. Learning more about myself as an Actor and being pushed outside my comfort zone. Will be looking forward to doing more classes with Dan in the future.

Dan’s classes are professional yet unpretentious. In each session I felt challenged and confident that the environment was a safe and supportive place. Scene study was a great opportunity to collaborate with a scene partner. I also valued the practise of receiving direction and applying it to my work effectively with Dan’s clear and encouraging guidance. I would recommend Mindful Acting to any newcomer or performer looking to refine their skills and I look forward to attending again myself in the future.

Up to now I have had 3 one to one sessions with Dan and they have been amazing. I have always had a love for acting but at 62 I felt I had really missed the boat. Dan's sympathetic and encouraging training is building my confidence in so many ways. I am learning to memorise scripts and to delve into the characters and am even learning alot about myself. Dan is an expert in bringing the best out of people and he has filled me with a new found confidence in my acting ability. One of the best decisions I've made in a long time is to join Mindful Acting classes.

Having recently completed Dan’s 4-week Film Scene Study course, I have absolutely no hesitation in offering a heartfelt recommendation to actors of all levels of experience. I signed up keen to sharpen my technique following the pandemic, and to reflect on my preparation and approach to acting for the camera. Within a lovely group of just 6, Dan created a warm, safe room in which to challenge me individually, and tailored his tutoring for each participant based on their specific needs and goals. I finished the course with renewed confidence in and clarity around my craft, thanks to Dan’s approach and great expertise. A wonderful four weeks!

Dan is an intuitive and insightful teacher. He makes sure to get the absolute best from you and doesn't let you off the hook in the most caring and supportive way. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, Dan will guide your acting to what is authentic and unique to you. Can't recommend him enough. Good teachers are rare. Inspirational ones are rarer. Dan is both.
