"I was so grateful for the really helpful coaching session I had with Emily. We talked about a range of issues, such as confidence and acting-related concerns I had as a soon-to-be graduate. Emily was supportive and really helped me to understand how I could put in place positive strategies to achieve my goals. I'd definitely recommend her to anybody, and particularly actors."

What is Actor Mentoring?
