“Every art that I practice—as an actor, a writer, a public speaker, a translator, a PhD who must navigate the politics of academia, a life partner, and a mother of three small children—has benefited enormously from my work with Sue. Itʹs a privilege to have her as my mentor and guide. Sue’s book will teach you specific techniques that will become part of your artist’s toolkit for how to connect with your emotional core and use it to sculpt your work as an actor, artist, and communicator whose mission is to connect with others.”
DR. MAGDALENA EDWARDS (Writer, Actor, PhD Comparative Literature)
"Susan Giosa understands the depth of the human spirit. She teaches you to tap into that part of yourself that is deepest and most personal and use it to enrich your art. Susan taught me how to take risks, both emotionally and physically and it completely changed the level of my work.”
AUTUMN REESER - Actress
“Trust is the main thing you want with a coach and Sue is genuine, she's pure, and she's warm. So it's easy to be yourself in front of her, drop those defenses and just be vulnerable, which is what you want as an artist. When I have a job, anytime I feel like I'm disconnected or hit a wall, I do her unique exercise.”
NICK TARABAY - Actor/Producer
“Embracing Sue’s techniques has quite literally changed my life, and consequently, my acting. If you are truly committed to being an artist, I cannot recommend her techniques highly enough."
