Peter Cousens, Award winning Actor, Director, Singer, Recording Artist (Freedom, Les Miserables, Where is Daniel?, Return to Eden, Sons & Daughters & more) "Felicity works with me at Talent Development Project with joyous regularity. She helps to find creative solutions to the needs and challenges of our young performers. Her innate awareness and perceptive insight is an inspiration. Grateful grateful.”

"I have had the opportunity to work with Felicity both as a student and as a teaching partner. Her warmth and compassion is second to none. She invests so much into every student and has a way of being honest and constructive with so much love and support. I have worked with her across acting, voice, and voice over, and in all fields she is thorough and precise. Her wealth of knowledge as a teacher and practitioner is exceptional. I cannot recommend Felicity highly enough. She continues to inspire me as an artist, and push me as a teacher. Myself and the whole StageMilk team love working with Felicity and proudly endorse her as a coach."
Belinda Gosbee, Actress & Voice Over Artist (Two Broke Girls, Her, J.Edgar, The Pitch, East Stackton, Rescue Special Ops)
"I first discovered Felicity when she taught an acting class that I was taking, and then I hunted her down to help prepare me for drama school auditions. I didn't want to work with anybody else! Felicity has the ability to make you feel completely safe and supported, whilst always challenging you to do your absolute best work. Her knowledge of the theatre and technique is exhaustive and she has a masterful way of helping you to find your own unique way in. Felicity exudes great warmth and joie de vivre and her relentless belief in me has helped me to become a far greater actress. I only wish that we weren't on opposite sides of the world today."
Kya Stewart, Actress (Risen, Atomic Kingdom)
I honestly have to make a HUGE shoutout to the beautiful and amazing Felicity Jurd for helping me so much over the years on several occasions, but in particular just recently and LAST MINUTE, a few days before New Years Eve on an accent and self tape. Feeling comfortable with, and trusting an acting/voice coach is so important to me because it can feel really daunting to have to throw yourself into the deep end and ‘look silly’ (which is half of what acting is lol) but Felicity is a dream to work with and she makes me feel super comfy. She has always encouraged me, helped me, laughed with me, nurtured me and has been a big inspiration to me 🙏🏻
So grateful for her help. Felicity makes me feel like my dreams are achievable and that it’s okay to ‘play’. If you need help, she is your woman!
Light filled, kind, funny, talented and generous. Thank you Felicity

"Felicity was the first acting coach I ever had the pleasure of having guide me through the craft of acting. She taught me what it meant to stand on stage and be seen. She taught me how to breathe through the difficulty of performance. She taught me how to connect my thoughts, emotions, the words of the playwright and communicate clearly to an audience. Felicity's teachings have remained with me throughout my whole career and I would be half the actress if I hadn't had her in my life."
Alia Seror - O'Neill, Actress (Thor Rangarak, Gods of Egpyt) I was fortunate enough to work with Felicity on a recent production of 'Blood Wedding'. It was such a pleasure being coached by her. Felicity is an exceptionally warm and insightful teacher. She was so dedicated towards helping our entire cast, providing an abundance of in depth advice which catered to each of our specific needs. I loved every minute of Felicity's classes.
Dan Balcaban, Actor, Director, Producer, Writer
"Working with Felicity is like a dream come true. She has the ability to work under tremendous stress and deadlines with such ease. I filmed a documentary about the global epidemic of homelessness called Care About Us which took many years. Having Felicity on the team to proof read, edit and communicate suggestions was an incredible help with the production. She takes the time to get to the source of what is needed and has so much patience. Felicity creates options and builds on ideas which was also a great motivator when it came to updating our website, reviewing the script, publicising the screenings and organising feature articles & interviews on radio. Felicity is highly professional and reliable. We are extremely happy to have worked with Felicity particularly on post production voice over coaching for “Care About Us”."
