Stimmung is Britain's first private practice to offer specialist skills and therapy for this client base. I, fellow musician and existential psychotherapist Miranda, and other psychotherapists who specialise in performance and creativity work flexibly to accommodate your irregular and sporadic working hours as necessary. You may be on tour, in the studio, on stage, teaching, writing 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, I offer online video sessions on Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp, or FaceTime.
If you are referred to Stimmung via BAPAM, you will have an initial consultation with me to assess whether you are suitable for the Stimmung Therapy Programme. In order to eliminate crippling performance anxiety, it may be necessary to explore an underlying trauma. To facilitate this process, the Stimmung Therapy Programme provides short-term, intensive therapy comprising one-to-one sessions with an associate specialist interspersed with bespoke, practical skills coaching from me. The skills mean that the client can manage better the often overwhelming emotions that are experienced during and in between trauma therapy sessions.
I am 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 provide specialist, individualised warm-ups prior to live radio, television or stage performances.
I also offer Mental Fitness Programmes unique to you as an individual, comprising intensive psychotherapy and skills coaching at your premises over a number of weeks or months according to your specialist needs. You can use the contact sheet to make further enquiries about a bespoke, specialist programme for you.
