4. Testimonials for Ana
Max Percy, theatre director
"I hired Ana to support me throughout the process of directing my last theatre show. I was managing many people and there were insecurities and thoughts I wouldn’t be able to share with the rest of the team.
Having Ana to bounce ideas off, allowed me to trust and be bold, it allowed me to create the art that I truly wanted to see and feel much more confident.
Creativity is a messy and difficult process, and coaching allowed me to create and sustain my practice and enjoy my job much more."
Andrea Bonilla, writer
"I am definitely not exaggerating when I say that Ana's help has literally changed my life.
I came in like an empty frustrated dark box full of anxiety and hidden fears and left feeling like a walking rainbow.
Ana surprisingly recognised patterns, frustrations and issues I was having and by using her direct, honest and precise techniques she challenged me and helped me getting my book off the ground.
I now have a published book as a result, which is currently being translated to be published in a several languages."
Elizabeth Stopford, film director
"Ana "takes no prisoners”, in the nicest possible way.
She has an instinct for honing in on what one might be resisting, and creating a safe space to explore it together.
Her methodical, practical, robust approach really helps one to move through creative blocks or crises of confidence, facing one's fears without quite realising that is what you are doing."
Why not join us as a full member? It costs about the same as 3 cups of coffee per month.
My role as the leader of our community is to help full members grow and develop their own reach, reputation, networks, careers and/or businesses, by providing enhanced and supported access to my own, including recording and publishing videos such as this one.
