Hi, I'm tom

Acting & Performance Coach

For the last 15 years I’ve trained & worked as director, writer, actor & coach all over the world including the West End, Broadway, Off-Broadway & the National Theatre in London.

I’ve collaborated with some of the world’s leading creatives on globally renowned productions.

Whilst being in a room amongst creative people is irreplaceable, this doesn’t mean virtual spaces can’t be fulfilling & fruitful.

This new paradigm brings some powerful benefits to the creative process.

I’ll work with you online from wherever you are in the world. I’ll create a liberating & accessible environment where you can dig deep, make mistakes, achieve breakthroughs & elevate your craft with a playful approach.

I use theatrical techniques that have been passed down for centuries combined with a fresh contemporary approach.

In this new digital world the creative possibilities are endless. I’ll help you find your place in it & stand out.

This 3 month program is for the actor who is getting the auditions, but not always the job or callback.

During this program you’ll develop a process where you find joy, discovery and success with your new approach to taping & auditioning.

I’ll work with you on finding a process that works for you and your strengths. After working with me, you’ll have never felt so confident and proud sending off your self-tape.


“Tom has totally changed the way that I approach self taping and auditioning. He helped me find a route to the kind of playfulness and creativity that I find when I’m on stage so that I am enjoying the process rather than stressing! The preparation techniques that he’s given me have gotten me out of my head and now I am excited when I get to use them. I’ve booked a job and got a recall (both off tapes) since I started working with Tom and it’s definitely in part due to the work that we have done together. I could not recommend him enough!”

Storytelling & Performance Coaching

For Entrepreneurs & Business Owners

What's your story?

If you want to engage your clients or customers, they need to go on a journey that will eventually lead them to a destination where they engage with your service or business. Is your company’s story compelling enough to get them there? Everyone has a story & I believe everyone is creative.

"I work with Entrepreneurs & Business owners. I teach storytelling structure & help identify their individuality which enables them to differentiate their brand & stand out when presenting to their clients & audience." - Tom O'Brien

Working with someone to harness your creativity, refining the story, and delivering it confidently is key. This is where I come in.

No matter how much you believe in your business, products, services or ideas, if you’re not clear on your WHY, the STORY STRUCTURE & the best DELIVERY STYLE for YOU - it may take longer than it should to make a sale or get your ideal client on board.

My process will help you to be clear, professional & specific, whilst allowing your personality to shine at the forefront, so that you can present confidently & authentically, to your customers & clients.


“Working with Tom was such a transformative experience. I was able to find parts of myself, of my personality, of my business, my way of communicating things, that I was not fully aware of. And they were inside, all along, of course, but I was blocking myself. it’s one of the most amazing experiences that I’ve had and I am beyond excited that I had this opportunity, that I was able to work with Tom, to learn from Tom, to grow. And my business is thriving because I can fully be myself.”
