DANCERS & PERFORMERS
If you’re a dancer or performer, and you’d like space to talk about anything that is bothering you, I can help.
I offer supportive one-to-one counselling for dancers and performers via Zoom. I work with artists struggling with a wide range of issues, including stress, eating disorders, injury, career transition, depression, anxiety and negative self-image.
As a trained dancer and dance teacher with 15 years’ experience working in the performing arts sector, I understand the unique challenges you face. I provide a safe, encouraging and empathetic space where can speak about and process any difficult feelings and thoughts. I will also share my insights and reflections to help you understand yourself better and make positive changes in your life.
As a specialist performing arts counsellor and psychotherapist, I'm registered as a BAPAM practitioner and a One Dance UK member.
Whether you've just encountered a problem or have been struggling for a long time, it can take a lot of courage to seek help - but it's likely to be one of the best things you've ever done.
Contact me for a free, no-obligation consultation to find out more about counselling and consider whether it's right for you. If you choose to continue with ongoing counselling sessions, I offer a dancer/performer discount rate.
