On top of his skill, experience and acclaim as actor and theatre-maker, Richard’s care, insight, and attention to detail with students is remarkable. I’ve worked alongside him and have seen students thrive and grow after sessions with him.

Richard is a very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. I always feel what he feeds back and suggests is reliable.He’s very good at providing a safe and comfortable space for students to express their opinions. He’s such a brilliant listener.


He supported and challenged the way I approached my learning material, and, at the end, he helped me to improve a lot. Don’t hesitate to chat with him and see what he can do to help you!

Richard has played a pivotal role in my actor training and I can’t speak highly of him enough.


He brings with him a wealth of experience in the industry - which spans across acting, directing, devising, producing and much more - and transfers it to the studio when working with students.


But what he excels in is knowing exactly what you need in order to push yourself to the next level and I wouldn’t be the actor I am without his help.

Excellent coach!!!

I’ve learned so much!

Richard will go above and beyond; challenging you, sparking your imagination and developing the craft in a thoughtful, energised way.


He has this rare combination as a director of being astute yet with a playful and committed approach which is personalised to each actor.

I have had the great pleasure of having Richard as a teacher.


He has been really important to my educational journey.


He brings his passion and determination in his work, which influenced my growth. He puts his heart into what he does and guides you with professionalism and knowledge.

I've worked with Richard several times over the past year, having been assistant directed by him and worked with him in 1-on-1 sessions.


Richard has an incredible eye for your individual needs, and a really deep understanding of a wide variety of methods. This means that you always leave with several new ways of approaching your work, and the confidence to further your work on your own. Besides, he always works with a real sense of play, so it's always a Lot of fun! Cannot recommend Richard enough.

Richard has worked with me as an acting coach and colleague, I have found his insight into acting to be invaluable and could not recommend his services enough.


The environment he creates is one of trust, play and inspiration. As a professional actor I would look no further than working with Richard as an acting coach to explore tricky scripts, breakdown a character and get being exploring physically inhabiting a character. His passion for the work is infectious and his generosity of knowledge is more than you could ask for.

I feel incredibly lucky to have had Richard as a coach.


He has an ability to help you uncover new and exciting things about yourself and works hard with you to shake away the bad habits. He provides you with the tools to find and cultivate your voice.


I couldn’t recommend him more.

Richard is extremely detailed, insightful and incredibly generous with his teaching.


I have worked with him on 3 separate projects and each time, I have been blown away by how attentive his methods are and how creative his vision has been.


Would highly and always recommend!
