Sascha Cooper - Creative Entrepreneur and Holistic Insightful Life Coach
I have always loved being creative ever since I was a little girl. At the age of 6, I was introduced to the world of musicals via my mother when she gave me the video of 'The Wizard of Oz', with Judy Garland. I was hooked! All the performances, dances, costumes and more blew me away and made me want to be part of it. A short time later I saw the show on stage for the first time, but no one told me I was not to sing along with the actors at the top of my voice in the theatre. Seeing the stage show made me take an interest in everything involved and wanted to act. Where life has taken me now has given me so much more than I expected.
Acting wise, I gained qualifications in LAMDA and Guildhall examinations, relevant GCSE's and A-Levels, then went on to get a BA Honours Degree in Drama Studies and English Literature at Exeter University. In 2005, I graduated with an ALCM Honours Degree in Acting at the Courtyard Theatre Training Company in London. Since then, I have done various performances in theatre, film and radio and specialise in Shakespeare, classical texts, improvisation and confidence building using drama.
As a dancer, I trained up to elementary level in ballet, tap, moden and jazz between the ages of 10-15. I then went on to train and specialise in various styles such as bellydance, flamenco, bollywood, charleston and more. When not performing, I teach groups and one to one sessions these styles as well.
The Psychic and Mediumship side was discovered at the age of 18 quite by accident as I was raising money for my school, playing a fortune teller. After testing things out for a year to see if what I had been predicting was true, it was discovered that I had Romani Gypsy descent on the French and Spanish side on my mother's side of the family. After a lot of soul searching, I finally embraced this side and added it to all I do now. I have 19 years experience behind me and specialise in Clairsentient Mediumship, Tarot, Oracle, Angel Tarot, Crystal Ball, Palmistry and Psychometry.
Hair and Makeup was added to my path in the form of Judy Neame, who was the head of the hair and makeup department at the BBC for 30 years before she went on her own path. She runs Centre Stage in Blackboys where I trained under her for a year in Makeup, Special Effects and Hair Styling (including wigs) and graduated in 2016. I particularly love working with theatrical/dramatic looks, vintage and bespoke themes.
Finally, as a coach, I bring everything I do together to make each session unique and a good experience for each client. The confidence building and roleplay from acting. The freedom and energy of dance. The insightful spirituality of psychic work and the visual empowerment of hair and makeup. Together, this makes me an Holistic Insightful Life Coach.
All this makes me who I am today and hope that my experience can help you on your path to being the best and only version of yourself.
