Mindset and Performance Coach and Mentor

I have been performing in the West End, nationally and internationally for the past twenty years. Having played in the ensemble and working my way up to many lead roles, such as Eponine and Fantine in Les Miserable, Sophie in Mamma Mia and Grizabella in Cats, I have had my fair share of auditions. Experiencing a high level of excitement and anxiety was always part of the audition process and I have always known that preparation is key. Combating nerves for performance and auditions is key to your success and I believe that my mindset coaching can help performers free themselves from self sabotaging thoughts and enjoy the process and share their talents. I have created Mind Management technique workshops and 1:2:1 coaching programmes to help performers mentally prepare for auditions and performance.  I am now the founder of the company “The Musical Mentor” and I am so passionate to share my knowledge with performers, who have suffered with performance anxiety and audition nerves. I want to help them create a positive mindset, a winning attitude and a love and excitement for sharing their talents.

Testimonials

‘The way Sophia communicates her message is so unique: she creates a nurturing atmosphere in which you feel comfortable and willing to connect with parts of yourself you may otherwise find difficult to recognise. What she has to offer and the way she does it is priceless. I would urge everyone to take part in her workshops given the opportunity.’ 
Meg Astin—Swing, Wicked London.

‘Ground Breaking’ ‘Revisitable Experience’ 

‘Not only is it a great reassurance, but it also works when put into practice. One of my biggest fears as a performer was that when the time came to audition for my favourite show ON EARTH (Les Mis) that I would be too nervous to do my best. However, with the application of Sophia’s techniques I now find myself 1 month into my contract on that very show. I couldn’t recommend the workshop enough, and I think not only would students love these classes, I think they need them. I definitely did.’ 

 Adam Filipe, Swing, Les Miserables, London.
