Karin is just brilliant at bringing the best out of actors. With a number of methods and techniques Karin applies and teaches an approach to unlocking pieces that works for you. In addition to this, Karin is fantastic at helping you realise your unique potential in an industry that requires you to have that something different and special. She is really friendly, honest and direct, a winning formula for an acting coach. Notwithstanding this she has experience of the industry and a lot of useful knowledge and advice to give from that perspective as well!

I came to Karin, initially, with the focus on improving my self confidence and vocal quality, both of which I lacked severely and found myself stuck in a place of despair.
A few months into regular sessions together, my confidence and clarity/understanding of my own voice had grown immensely, so as to the point of me applying for drama schools and I soon found myself going up for castings within the industry.
Eventually I found myself moving to London where I now study at Acting full time.
Working with Karin changed my life, that may sound dramatic but without her guidance, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Period. I say that with full confidence to anyone reading this testimonial.
Her teaching is clear, tailored and relevant and a the same time fun. The energy and passion Karin has is inspiring and engaging.
The friendship and trust we have built over the years of working together and still have now is invaluable. If you are looking for coaching - look no further.

“With her brilliantly effective methods that understand exactly how actors work, Karin has helped to change the way I think about acting. Her on set coaching during my Showreel shoot was invaluable and I can't wait to work with her again! “
Claire Jones, Actor
I have worked with Karin twice now on Transition Stage Company’s Enter Stage Write events and both times have been thoroughly enjoyable. I am always amazed at Karin’s vision in transforming the writing off the page. As an actor I felt supported and encouraged to really put myself out there. And when I look back at the visual aspect of the staging and lighting it really is extremely effective.’

Karin is not only an amazing acting coach but also an amazing and very inspiring lady! I first started going to Karin for 121 lessons which helped me in so many ways, not only improving my acting skills but also helping me so much with my confidence ultimately helping me get better at acting.
I can also highly recommend the workshops, today I took part in the script to self tape workshop, I’ve walked away learning so much and now feel I can confidently apply for jobs that require a self tape. I can’t recommend Karin enough these classes and workshops have been the best!

I recently had the pleasure of being directed by Karin for a play at the annual Enter Stage Write 2020 competition. I had previously heard about Karin's expertise but up until we started rehearsals in Feb 2020 I had never been directed by her before. Karin was absolutely superb and helped to channel the best from each actor she worked with for the show. Karin displayed an insight into interpreting script and getting you to feel the right rhythm within it which only lent itself to you feeling confident of delivering a great performance, one the author would be proud of. I really hope we get to work together again in future and look forward to the next time we cross paths within this acting sector.
I just did the Lifting Script and Audition workshop and I couldn't recommend them more! I learned a great technique to perform a scene truthfully and genuinely, and how to give the best I can at an audition, and I can't wait to walk into an audition room and show them what I've got!
Louise Osbourne, Actor/Writer
A truly wonderful director who is always invested in the work and has so much experience with actors she directs them effortlessly.
Jo Barker, Actor
I met Karin just over a year ago, I attended her workshops where she welcomed me with a friendly smile and put me at ease straight away.
Karin has the ability to bring out the best in you. Pushing you where it is needed and giving you the confidence to let go and grow as a performer. I came to Karin with lots of questions about myself but after doing the workshops and having 1-2-1 coaching with her I started to see my own ability as an actor.
Without Karin believing in me there is no way I would have done the Birmingham monologue slam. It was my first time ever on stage and there I was in front of 200 people. I knew I needed someone like Karin to help me achieve my goals. I have recently been signed by my first agent .
Thank you Karin. We need people around us who we trust and she is definitely one of those!
Haqi Ali, Actor
I found the entire day to be, not only thoroughly enjoyable, but also very informative and a great learning experience. Techniques to enable learning lines with ease will serve me well in my acting career. I found this particularly useful as I am dyslexic and find learning lines to be a challenge and time consuming.
Katie Isles, Model
As someone relatively new to acting, Karin’s workshop is a great learning tool and confidence boost. Her great tips for learning lines and lifting script have made a massive difference, along with her simple ideas for calming those casting nerves. I was also in a great group of more experienced actors so I was fortunate to be able to work with, and learn from, them as well. I would definitely recommend for actors looking to improve hands on practical techniques that will help you in every aspect of acting and day to day life.
Keith Dallison, Actor/model/VO artist
After many years in dim lit edit rooms, standing behind cameras and microphones, hiding in the shadows, watching presenters, actors and voice artists, I made a crazy decision that it was now my turn to step into the limelight. And so, I was introduced to Karin, by an associate, for to take any steps out of my comfort zone meant, I needed an exceptional coach I could put my faith in. And that wasn’t all… I had a unique disposition… I lived 5600km away in Dubai. Skype became our classroom, and it worked, not because of the technology, but because of Karin’s methods. Within a short time, I was receiving positive, unsolicited feedback at both professional and social engagements. Karin puts you at ease making the difficult, simple, and stepping out of that comfort zone, comfortable. For acting, presenting or any other means, I strongly recommend Karin to anyone that wants to realise their potential in using their voice.
Itasha James, Actor
I have been on an incredible journey with Karin, discovering who I am as an actress and realising new levels and depths that I can take a character to. For this I am very grateful.
Adrian Rosú, Actor
I first met Karin on an audition for the 2020 Enter Stage Write. Right off the bat the way she handled the audition process showed me she knew how to inspire, direct and manage actors and that her experience in this field was abundant. The rehearsal process just reinforced my thoughts and I felt at ease developing the script and working on such an efficient and passionate level with her.
Michele Olivia, Actor
Karin has a wonderful warm spirit and a natural ability to use her authenticity and powerful energy to instill technique and draw out the truth of the character. She is fabulous at what she does and I would definitely, highly recommend working with her. Thank you Karin
Keith Vickers, Actor
I have just completed two fantastic workshops with Karin. Lifting Script - Finding the Truth in Text was a deliciously intense experience which involved really listening to other actors ,trusting yourself and exploring many ways of playing the same part. How To Nail That Audition was full of great advice on how to enter the audition room and hold and use it to your advantage. A real confidence builder.
Christina Neacsu, Actor
"Karin’s acting and voice workshop had a good pace and was taught enthusiastically. She has presented an innovative method of lifting the text from page which I found amazing. Having lived in England for 6 years, I have struggled with some sounds’ pronunciation. Karin gave me the right foundation and exercises to continue to build and develop my diction and pronunciation. I recommend Karin’s workshops to all actors who are interested in learning the lines quicker than they do now and to all non-native English people who want to be more effective in their communication.”
David Claridge, Actor
I was directed by Karin for Enter Stage Write 2020. She is great and helping you to understand the pace and rhythm of a script to bring it to life. Karin has an instinctive ability to find the most effective way of putting individual actors in tune with the script, fellow performers and themselves. I look forward to working with Karin again in the future.
