To be or not to act
I am Jo Kelly, and I am here to help you awaken and shake your infinite & unique talent.
The first thing you should know about me, is that I am not an acting teacher but a coach. I do not believe you can be taught how to act but you can be reminded how to BE and you can muscle that - like any pro-.
When I started acting, I realized I had potential (like everybody else) but I had apparently a strong resistance to tap into it. And I was not alone. It seemed like 99% of the actors I knew had the same problem... And all the acting classes I took were avoiding the question by feeding me mathematical approaches, techniques and "foolproof" success recipes.
So I decided to research the matter of the instinct and eventually, I succeeded to reset my instrument to it's original state: FREEDOM & AUTHENTICITY. As soon as I did, I got immediate work and success.
This was so exciting to me that I immediately decided to share this with other actors, and as I started coaching them, I witnessed mind-blowing results.
What I did was this: I addressed their inner blocks and I helped them muscle up their very unique instincts. More on that here below in the philosophy section.
For more than 20 years now, I have coached a lot of actors -whom I prefer to refer to as artists, athletes, awarded or not-, to shift from doubt to commitment and fear to passion. Helping them enjoy truth & freedom during their auditions, plays, TV shows and lead roles in movies. Check out the testimonials.
For the last 20 years, I have also coached individuals to align with their true & higher self and corporate managers to dissolve fear, build confidence, present, resolve conflict, manage, sell, reach their goals and create a happier life in general. More on corporate.
You should also know that, I believe in remaining professionally active so parallel to my coaching practice, I direct theatre, documentary and film and I have had the chance of receiving several awards both in acting and directing. ( I do not act anymore though)
As for my education, I have an MBA in business & human resource management and attended performance schools in Brussels, Paris, Madrid and the US.
On a side note, I am half Belgian, half Irish... And I have lived and still coach in Brussels, Paris, Zurich, Madrid and I currently live in Los Angeles with my husband and our 2 kids Elvis & Tyger.
