Stimmung is Britain's only private practice to offer specialist skills and therapy for this client base. Helen and fellow musician and existential psychotherapist Miranda work flexibly to accommodate your irregular and sporadic working hours as necessary. You may be on tour, in the studio, on stage, teaching or studying. We work across music genres, including classical, pop, contemporary, rock, jazz, grime, electronic. You may be a singer, composer, producer, DJ, instrumentalist, dancer, orchestral player, actor, artist, writer, theatre practitioner or poet. If you're a "night" person, then we will do our best arrange sessions accordingly. If you live or work overseas, then in order to maintain continuity with regular sessions, Helen does online video sessions on Skype, Whatsapp, or FaceTime, and Miranda offers Instant Messaging and Asynchronous email therapy in addition to encrypted video sessions using Vsee.

In order to eliminate crippling performance anxiety, it may be necessary to explore an underlying trauma.

This means that the client may better manage the often overwhelming emotions that are experienced during and in between trauma therapy sessions.
Helen is an experienced backstage skills coach for performance anxiety, or even a sudden onset of existential angst prior to getting on stage (it has been known!), and also provides specialist, individualised warm-ups prior to live radio, television or stage performances.
Helen also offers Mental Fitness Programmes unique to you as an individual, comprising intensive psychotherapy and skills coaching at your premises over a number of weeks or m
