“Pip is the ideal audition and acting coach because not only is she extremely generous with her time, knowledge and advice, she is also straight to the point and very honest with her feedback. As an actor, it is so important to be given direct feedback because anything else is a waste of time and not productive! Pip's (screen-testing/self-taping technique) class gave me SO much information on auditions and selftapes, I now know the exact quality and standard required for any self tapes as well as in person auditions.” - Lavina White

Great personalised advice on individual goals, she has a lovely energy as a mentor. Would definitely recommend." - Clare Oehme

“My 14yo son Damian has been having private coaching sessions with Pip where she has worked with him on various scripts and helped him prepare for casting calls and filmed self-tapes for castings, for which he has had call-backs for some and for others he has been awarded the role. Damian greatly enjoys working with Pip as she helps him with how to better understand the character(s) he is portraying and she challenges him with a wide variety of scripts which is helping him grow and develop into a diverse actor.” - Adele Hempstead (mother of Damian, age 14)
