HOW DO I KNOW ENLIVENMENT PRIVATE COACHING IS RIGHT FOR ME?
This is a space designed to support introspective work and experiential learning for any self identified woman, trans feminine or non binary person who identifies as an actor, performer, creator or artist. This space is right for you if you want to cultivate a deeper relationship with yourself, focus on creating a consistent practice and connect with a community of like-minded artists. Our work draws on an array of somatic, cognitive, emotional and spiritual tools and embodied practices that can support lasting personal change. Please think twice before applying if: you are not interested in self exploration or introspective work; you are not interested in moving outside your comfort zone; you aren't interested in taking responsibility and want someone else to do the work for you.
Emerging artists and creators are welcome, as well as those with established careers who are looking to recommit and find new ways of tapping into their practice. As your guide, I draw on my own two decades working as an actor as well as my formal training in multiple modalities. You can read more about my approach here.
WHEN ARE SESSIONS SCHEDULED?
1:1 Sessions will be scheduled at the same allotted, agreed upon time each week for the duration of the program. On rare occasions sessions may need to be cancelled or rescheduled. Some flexibility has been built into the cost of each program. I will always give as much advance notice as possible and ask that you do the same. Private sessions will always be rescheduled. All live sessions are held via Zoom.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A PRACTICE OR SESSION GETS CANCELLED OR RESCHEDULED?
Honouring our needs is at the heart of what we practice together. As a self employed facilitator who is also a working actor, on occasion group practice or drop in sessions may be cancelled due to time away for illness, work or rest. In these cases advance notice will be provided whenever possible. Planning for unforeseen cancellations and rescheduling is built into the cost of membership. Private 1:1 Supportive Coaching Calls will always be rescheduled.
IS THIS LIKE THERAPY?
These programs can definitely be done in tandem with therapy or counselling but they are not a substitute for individualized support from a therapist. The emphasis is on practice, education and introspective self reflection. I'm here in the capacity of facilitator and coach. Participation does not constitute a therapeutic relationship. If you are dealing with symptoms of acute psychological distress you may be referred to a therapist or mental health care professional.

WHAT DO I NEED FOR THE PRIVATE PROGRAMS?
You can participate from anywhere — you will need a computer or phone with a camera. You will also need a journal and a pen to write with and a private space, with some room for gentle movement, free from as much distraction as possible. If you are applying for the Firefly, Firecracker or Phoenix level programs it is highly recommended you have your own lights and access to a suitable self tape set up.
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THE PRIVATE PROGRAMS?
The private programs have been designed with great energy and care. The Spark is what you might call the signature private program or "New Members" Program. It is the most structured program, with weekly modules, pre-recorded "lectures" and reflection worksheets for you to complete as well as lots of time allotted for live 1:1 guidance and assistance. It has been priced according to how much value it contains.
The Firefly program is for returning artists who have completed the Spark and want to continue their growth. Once you've completed the Spark, you will have an in depth understanding of key tools and practices that we will continue to work with at this level. Many people repeat this offering frequently as a rigorous reboot.
The Firecracker and Phoenix are programs with elite level access to my time and energy. They have been priced accordingly.
ARE THERE REDUCED RATE SPOTS AVAILABLE?
Yes! I have designed these programs with artists in mind and have worked hard to make them as affordable as possible for the value you are getting. That being said, there are some scholarships available for community members who would not otherwise be able to access these programs due to economic barriers. Priority will be given to BIPOC, trans feminine and non binary artists. You can email to receive a scholarship application and find out if a space is available here. If spots are full you will be added to the waitlist and notified when a spot opens up in the private program you are interested in.
HOW DO I PAY?
Once your application has been accepted and if there is no further interview required, you will be sent a link to the payment page for your chosen program where you'll be able to choose your payment plan, enter your credit card information or pay through PayPal. When this is completed you’ll receive a confirmation email with all the details you'll need to fill in your initial in depth inventory, book your first session and begin your enlivenment journey!
CAN I GET A REFUND?
If you begin the program and decide it is not for you for whatever reason, you will be entitled to a pro-rated refund up until the midway point.
