These sessions may be for you if ...

  • you're ready to devise, generate and actualize your latest project

  • you want to keep the promises you make with yourself 

  • you're interested in relating to yourself with greater kindness and acceptance 

  • you want to take tangible action steps towards your career goals and creative desires

The Details:

​​​​

All sessions are private, 1 hour, live on zoom 


Together, we will create a safe container for honest reflection, exploration, mindful awareness and intention setting. Whether you're feeling stuck, unsure or overwhelmed, I will partner with you to get things moving again so you can feel more alive and connected to what matters to you.

A coaching relationship is a partnership. I meet you where you're at, ask questions, listen deeply, point out patterns, offer feedback, honour your work, hold you accountable and celebrate your commitment to yourself. I will not offer unsolicited advice or feed you solutions. I know you are the expert on your own process. I believe in you, your voice and your art and I know making it is fundamental to who you are.  

I currently have sliding scale spots available- priority given to BIPOC, trans feminine and non binary artists.

“Vivien is a generous, kind and creative coach who empowers her students to not only grow their technique and range but to deepen their entire artistic practice.

 

Working with Viv has made me more confident and comfortable as an actor and above all, feel more like myself on camera. I cannot recommend her enough... hands down the best coach I've ever had”

"Vivien has helped me find better ways to work through the uncertainty of this industry, develop a personal practice, and work from my own experience to create more truthful performances.  

She is a highly qualified, incredibly supportive, hands on acting coach and her warm and nurturing personality is what I love most about her!

"I always look forward to my coaching sessions with Vivien. She goes out of her way to make me feel seen and heard during our sessions; it’s more than just the craft of acting— we strip down what it is to be a woman in the industry and how being in tune with all parts of you ties into the work.

Every session is so wholesome and I always leave feeling empowered and inspired to create".

"Enlivenment gave me a chance to slow down and take pause more than any other training I've encountered. Vivien's approach allowed her to get to know me in an organic way and meant our work was perfectly tailored to what I needed in my personal growth and my development as an actor.

Warm-ups and taping techniques I practice with Viv remain invaluable to me each time I prepare for a role".

Vivien has a way of making first time performers feel seen, heard, and comfortable which in turn leads to great performances. In the acting  and casting world it has been a challenge to find people who have both a skill set in performance and an intrinsic empathy when working with marginalized communities. Vivien has both of these which makes her the perfect acting coach for my projects.

She has expertly led casting workshops for my film "For Nonna Anna" which screened at festivals around the world including Sundance where it received a Special Jury Prize. I attribute much of the film’s success to the lead who was cast with Vivien’s insight, skill, and care. 

- Luis De Filippis, filmmaker
