Performing Arts Print

performing artsAs well as being a fully trained CBT therapist I am also a professional musician and I believe I am uniquely qualified to understand many of the pressures facing musicians and performers. Having originally trained as a musician I began to investigate the psychological aspects of performance. I have a Masters Degree in psychology for musicians and it was during my studies that the potential benefits of therapy became clear. The positive results of my final thesis increased my interest and enthusiasm and after further training I decided to become a therapist myself. I became a performance coach at Trinity College of Music and regularly treat musicians, singers and actors from many areas of the industry including London Orchestras and West end Musicals.

Performers often concentrate on the acquisition of technique and neglect the psychological component. With CBT you can learn to develop helpful thought processes and behaviours that can enhance performance and help to unlock potential.
