Finally create the life you deserve and the acting career you've been dreaming of ALL your life...
"Yes Nick, I want to rush to the front of the line, so I can be the first one notified as soon as ACTivate 2022 - Ignite is ready to launch!"
I was struggling with staying positive, having faith in my work and the future of my career, and a lot of unconscious habits that got in the way of my potential...
I got very very busy during the course, with offers of work and auditions.
The visualisations are now a part of my life and I am much more Faith Full, with much more self belief, and much more awareness of the negative thoughts. I have eliminated the fear of success and fear of failure that debilitated me...I became much more caring towards my self tapes. Much more work and care went into them and I sent auditions and tapes in that I was genuinely proud of. It was also a wonderful refresher on craft. It also affected how I communicated with industry people, my agent, etc...I am much more positive. I believe in myself more, I don't get upset by the ups and downs quite so much, I am more in the present.
In the time that I worked with you Nick, I booked 4 jobs and earned over £20k!!
This allowed me to pay off my credit card (which was something I wanted to do) I can now comfortably afford my own apartment for another year and I have savings + have money to fly home to see my family in New Zealand!
I am so much happier and my career took off fairly quickly once I started implementing the daily changes and really saw myself succeeding!
By shifting my beliefs and making it a daily practice to work on my taping skills, self worth and confidence I am doing MUCH better auditions and therefore booking higher paid better quality work. My relationship with myself and others has improved greatly and I am so glad to have the support for the other Activate members.
The group was a safe space, a fun space! I don't think I could have had this level of growth without learning from them too. I wake up each day knowing that I have choices. I am excited for each day and I feel like I am living more which is a promise I made to my Dad before he died.
That I would live a life free and full of enriching experiences. Activate has definitely been that for me.
Previously what stopped me was fear of the unknown, poor self-image, low self-esteem, lack of commitment and focus, lack of exercise and self-care
I had weight issues which were causing health issues, negative thinking, no faith in myself and my abilities, a hang up about my age (I’m too old and knackered), thinking that if I gave myself permission to succeed and be paid, I would be seen as greedy and therefore I refused myself permission and did nothing. Now out of all that from having gone through the ACTivate programme I have shifted quite a lot. Weight-wise I’ve dropped 7.7 kg and as a result my health issues are diminishing rapidly.
This was possible because I have learned through ACTivate techniques on how to focus and maintain that focus. I have learned how to commit. My self-esteem has shot up. I no longer have a hang-up about my age. I recognise and appreciate my talents and capabilities.❤️
I am approaching self tapes in a much calmer way and am beginning to feel more relaxed in the process...
I became aware that some deep rooted values I was holding onto have hindered me and I was previously totally unaware of the values that I was holding onto. I am succeeding in replacing my old set of values with new ones. I have discovered some new things about my acting ability!
I am feeling a lot more focussed and positive about my acting career and feel that change is, at last, possible...
UPDATE: Andrea just landed a role in Emmerdale Farm!
I feel so centred and clear in my life. I wake up and if I feel tired I give myself 5% more energy. If fears come up in my day I am gentle with myself and ask myself what it is and work on it there and then.
I no longer lose it over silly things and end up beating myself up for getting so annoyed and upset. I believe in myself. I believe in my acting. I feel so calm and know everything will come together without stress and having to "work Hard". There was no worries or what ifs because I have the tools now to deal with anything that comes up. This gives me so much confidence and assurance. What I see in the screening room is the person I want to be.. I feel I am now. I feel taller and stronger as I walk around doing my day to day.
I have great self tapes to put together a great show reel. I will continue to tape each week now that I have found my flow and I will create the most powerful stand out showreel. I am setting up my website, I have all my profiles updated. I am excited and ready and also don't feel needy or wanting.
I feel loved and supported and not competitive. I know there is a role that is right for me and I will bring my own uniqueness to it. This course has given me so much! More than anything I have ever done before . It has set me up for all areas of my life .. personal and business.
The CRAZZYYY class of January 2021
I approach things in a calmer frame of mind and am happier within myself. I just go for things rather than worry and dissect them first...
I enjoy self taping now. I'm realising after many years of rejection and hurt, that people like me and find me fun! I've been prioritising better and I don't compare but go for what is me.
I have much to give and contribute which has given me a sense of well being - I take risks rather than analyse - I am not responsible for other people and I don't have to spend time with toxic people
And again, this is a magical tool. I was listening to it for several days while preparing...
...for a self tape audition. What ever comes out of this audition, I was at my best and gave 100%. Hanni Heinrich x
Now I feel I can take on the world...
Yes I feel more empowered in my mind. I know what I need to do to make me a A list Actor. I have a sense of strength and courage. It’s giving me a brilliant foundation to having a successful career and being a more positive person...
Much lighter in myself...

The class of January 2021
#wins For me it’s got to be a new found excitement when I am doing a self tape I never had that feeling before, I used to get all Antsy and uptight.. But now it’s a completely different story because I am using my ACTivate tools to help me now! ⚡️
#wins I got to see two cuts of my film Reflex and I felt so proud of what I have achieved & spent two hours talking with the director & came up with a new scene that helps move the story along.
#wins Giving myself credit shifting my focusing on to what I am achieving. Rediscovering my love of writing for myself 😎. 🎥 🏆
#Aha I was also getting caught out with bear traps (particularly the vortex) in my sides. I will continue to work on this.
Thank you for your advice Nick really helpful! For me this goes hand in hand with giving myself permission. 😎
#Win I filmed my scenes today and smashed it! I used my process to get into the zone, I had fun AND did a great job. I'm having such a valuable, rewarding experience on this job!
And suddenly just like that all my fears are gone.
Its first time I don't just know and feel it .. I am it.
#ahas I have had an epiphany! :) I was in a slump this week - felt like I was going backwards. As Andrea mentioned, we had a lovely chat on Tuesday and we both started reminding each other of lots of things that were actually changing. Then, the amazing work I got to do in class for me to jump off that cliff! But I felt the big things weren't shifting and it was getting me down.
Suddenly felt all the work Nick has been doing with us these past few weeks came into line. I suddenly remembered my need to be an actor when I was a child. It was deeper than a want or a dream.
When doing the Energetic Signature, My empowering moment was when I was doing a monologue on stage to full house. And I thought about what I said in class that I don't get nervous on stage. I realise that when acting on stage I am 100% present. The audience is 100% present and we as actors are completely living the scene there and there in real time. Everyone in that theatre is in the zone and the energy is indescribable. I feel like my soul is soaring.
I realised I dont see screen acting same way because its recorded, it is judged, it held onto, it can haunt me and its usually me on my own looking at myself and pulling me to pieces. Its all in my head! Then I realised whats missing..2 things.
1. I need to act like noone is looking when I am self taping and see the camera as a part of my eyes bringing the story in. and
2. the professional set.
If I was on a professional set I would have all that wonder of real life, everyone in the zone in the scene. And suddenly just like that all my fears are gone.
It's the first time I don't just know and feel it ... I am it.
