"Say YES to your dreams, say YES to your power and say YES to a life on your terms!"
I began my Coaching Journey in November, attending the Foundations of Coaching Weekend in Melbourne with the incomparable Joe Pane.
That weekend was the weekend I knew that I was in the right place!
I am an Opera Singer by profession, having performed nationally and internationally, and with some of the most incredible and successful artists of our time.
It is something that I am still and will always be passionate about. However, I have known for some time that this was not to be my sole path.
Seeing ever increasing gaps in up-and-coming youth performers, it was in early 2014 I made the decision to devote my life to giving back my performance gifts and knowledge to aspiring performers, alongside my performing career.
With cuts to Performing Arts training happening in universities across the globe, there are gaping holes becoming apparent in the training of the next generation of performers.
The more I train up and coming artists, the more I see it.
The skills upon completion of their University courses are lacking in the performers in the profession and neurotic, sabotaging behaviours are increasing.
It is responsible for inferior skill building and technical proficiency in key areas as well as an unclear or unknown professional mindset and resilience strategies.
To put the icing on the cake, the entertainment industry has recently made news headlines documenting some of the highest recorded levels of mental health issues and depression in ANY field.
These are my colleagues, my friends and the performers I educate and this was where I made my choice to be a part of the decrease these statistics.
