Coaching for actors Nicky Raby

Is this you?

  • Feeling a little lost in your career as an actor and the phone has seem to have stopped ringing ?

  • Do you know what you want, but the right doors don't seem to be opening for you? 

  • Does everyone you know seem to be casting and getting great opportunities and you can't remember the last time you had an audition? 

  • Did you have a run of success, but now all has gone quiet and you are not sure how to get back on track?

  • Do you want to have a better relationship with your agent and also get to know casting directors so you can get in the room?

  • Or are you just starting out and not sure how to begin? You have limited resources, time and money and want to make sure you do the most effective tasks. 

You may have answered yes to one or more of the above. If so, you are in the right place and I can help. 

I am an actor (for over 25 years), a qualified life coach and a regular speaker and writer

(featured in the stage, surviving actors etc)

You know it is time to get serious.

To put some love back into your acting career.

I have had so many of those moments over the years when I knew I had to up my game. I couldn't just wait for the phone to ring anymore. I couldn't just hope my lucky break was around the corner.

I have been in the industry for over 25 years. I am an actor, a qualified personal performance life coach and the author of the book 'Be Ready for your Lucky Break' and former agent. I have written for The Stage and I am Surviving Actors' columnist and one of their expert speakers.

I get it because I am an actor. I have felt stuck, frustrated, lost and impatient. I had a great vision for my career but I had no idea how to do it. However I am pleased to say I have had my best year yet...even though I have a young son. 

I would spend so much time feeling confused and disheartened because the phone wasn't ringing and saddened when my friends and family would ask 'So how's the acting going, have you been in anything recently?' Sound familiar? 

I was led to believe that agents and casting directors were completely untouchable and out of reach and this is simply not true. They love this industry as much as actors and want to find brilliant actors for the jobs. 

This is why I had to take control...

I knew there had to be a solution, a strategy to follow. A situation where I could feel in charge of my own destiny and not just wait for permission.

In 2012 I took my diploma as a Personal Performance Life Coach. What I share with you is practical and easy to implement. You can read my full story here

What I offer: 

  • My experience. I have worked with over 700 clients just like you. I understand what it is like to be actor because I am one. 

  • A personalised strategy and plan of action. I know there isn't a 'one size fits all'. When I work with my clients; everything I do is tailored to your needs and circumstances. 

  • You will be able to figure out where you are going so you can stop 'working hard' and feel like you are chasing your tail. Plus my 'behind the scenes' knowledge can answer all those questions you can't ask your agent/casting director because you are afraid of looking daft. 

  • Accountability and Consistency. How many times have you gone to a talk or workshop and left feeling so motivated then... suddenly. Nothing. Nothing changes. You feel stuck again. You don't know what the next right action is. 

  • The tools I share with you work. They can be used not just during our four weeks together but tools you can pull out anytime you need them during your career going forward.

  • Please note this is only for actors who are serious about making progress. 

How you use the time is entirely up to you.

Finally, what will you leave with? 

  • A plan of action. No more confusion or overwhelm, you will have a comprehensive action plan to follow that is tailored especially for you. 

  • A renewed sense of excitement about your career. I love this industry, but the hard times can make us all lose faith. In just an hour together. I always endeavour to inject positivity and motivation. 

  • A strategy. Often as actors, we feel as though we have tried everything but nothing is working. Building a strategy will assist you in working smarter, not harder so you get your desired results quicker. 

  • We will uncover any obstacles that are getting in your way, so you can create space for exciting opportunities. 

  • I work very practically so you can put yourself fully back into the driver's seat of your career.
