1:1 PERFORMANCE COACHING
Opera Singer, Germany

Opera Singer, Australia
I initially signed up for performance coaching with Cailin because I wanted to find greater clarity in my preparation and performance practise as a professional opera singer working internationally. What I found when we started working together was that Cailin has a wonderful ability to ask exactly the right questions to get me thinking about what I need to do to be the best performer I can be. She was calm, clear and concise in her approach and was nothing but the consummate professional. As a result, I gained a whole new understanding of my mental process pre-performance and in turn, gave the best performances on any stage to date! I would recommend Cailin's coaching to anyone who wants to get to know themselves as a performer better. Anyone who wants to be their most authentic self on a stage for an audience to appreciate

It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that Cailin has changed my life. After a very rough patch in the industry, I never thought I’d return to the Arts. After only a few sessions with Cailin I can honestly say that my attitude and outlook have completely changed. She has revolutionised the way I see myself and my work as a creative and has given me the tools to help mitigate any self-sabotage I may be capable of. Her approach to coaching is genuine and you feel as though her interest in you and your work is authentic. In Cailin I have found the support I didn’t even know that I needed and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to unlock their potential as an artist.

Cailin is a fountain of information & knows how to relate it to you, to coach you on your own journey. She provides insights into the artist’s psyche with practical ways to improve your own practise with heaps of relevant information based on current research. She’s very generous with her time and sharing her experiences. I learnt a lot about myself and the other participants were really interesting. I’m very glad I signed up for the course and would highly recommend it. Thanks Cailin!

I signed up to Cailin’s course because I was convinced by the systematic approach to smaller areas of performer's work and by the fact that the seemingly "insurmountable skyscraper" of being a performer was divided into simpler and achievable units. I liked the mixture of the individual and group work and also the stress on the individual goals that one focused on during the course. Cailin has given us a lot of things to think about and many resources, and she always explained things to every person individually if necessary, and was very supportive with everyone.
I believe I have gained a lot of confidence and a deeper insight into my strengths and growth areas, and also into my background as a performer. I would definitely recommend the course to all performers - actually to anybody who has to deal with anything "performative" or "creative" in their life. Cailin provides the information and tools necessary to build a strong foundation upon which to build a career in the industry. Thank you, Cailin.
I’d recommend this course to any artist who is somehow struggling with any of the many aspects of the process of performing. Cailin is able to break them down, and turn them into small steps you can easily take and incorporate them into your daily routine, making them become a healthy habit; that’s what I liked the most about the course. Plus, not only is she incredibly prepared, but also a lovely person, who sincerely takes her clients’ struggles at heart.
Singer & Writer
Cailin has created a course that I would consider to be essential to artists of all disciplines. The course provides current, evidence-based information and experiences that improve all aspects of the artist's practice and psyche. Cailin is very generous in offering her experience, knowledge and time and is kind, fun and respectful as a facilitator. This course is the real deal, and will help you to grow as an artist, performer and person. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Opera Singer & Teacher
If you are ready to be guided to success Cailin, at The Performer's Edge, is ready with her time, research, and personal experience. I was fortunate enough to participate in Performance Dynamics, her inspiring course on performance psychology within the arts. I met wonderful people in my field and was constantly in awe of how Cailin brought each of us out of our shell and into action.
The Performer's Edge is amazing. I can not thank Cailin enough for helping me to see and understand how important it is to train your mind, thoughts and feelings to help you with your practice and performance of your craft. I've always wondered why performers weren't taught the same mindset techniques as professional athletes but now you can and I highly recommend the Performance Dynamics course to take your creative pursuit to the next level.
This course is definitely the best thing any perfomer could get. Cailin teaches you how to set up goals, how to practice efficientlly and even how to do your best when performing. She shows you importance of mindset and finding your purpose in order to stay motivated. She also offers you great ways how to deal with anxiety problems. I would recomend this course to anyone struggling or just wanting to be better version of himself.
Because of Cailin I am completely transformed person and I can't thank her enough!
Cailin shares incredible and life-changing resources through her Performance Dynamics course. I essentially describe the experience to friends as "performance psychology". We were given tools to analyse behaviour patterns, were shown methods from current research that yield the greatest growth and success, and were guided on how to actively make these behaviours a part of our every day lives - all the while managing the mental hurdles involved.
Cailin's insight on mindset has been something I've brought into my life outside of being a performer, and I will be forever grateful for the new perspective I have on life and how I interact with my thoughts and the world around me.
Cailin offers something that is much broader in its application than just your performance life, and I can't recommend her more highly. Do it! Your mental health will thank you (and you'll become an absolute weapon).
I recently completed Cailin's Performance Dynamics Course, and hadn't anticipated the teachings of the course to have such a profound effect on all aspects of my life! Not only do I feel more prepared for a life in operatic performance, but I actually feel more prepared to take on whatever life might throw at me! Cailin is a wonderfully kind and supportive educator, whose classes are backed up by thorough research and delivered in an engaging and supportive way. Can't recommend The Performer's Edge more highly!!
Working with Cailin was an amazing experience. Cailin tackles such a breadth of topics and is an amazing teacher. Relating her own experiences to us while also allowing us to engage with our stories of certain moments in our performing career that we wished may have been different. This is something that the industry needs right now, to be able to allow us to be kinder to ourselves and perform better. I wholeheartedly recommend Cailin’s program at The Performers Edge, it has helped me immensely and I’m know it will help you too!
