Rehabilitation from Tension, Muscle Strain or Emotional Crisis
It’s not uncommon for musicians to go through periods when lose their way—with their technique, as performers. When this happens, there can be a huge crisis of confidence, a drop in self-esteem, and a loss of clarity and sense of direction.
“Will this mean I’m going to lose work, income? What will people say? Will I have to give up my career?”
It can be hard to practice, terrifying to perform or rehearse, even with friends and colleagues we have known for years.
“What’s going on? How do I get out of this? Who can help me?”
I offer you the opportunity to be able to talk about your concerns in a confidential and emotionally safe space. We help you understand the physical or emotional issues underlying the technical challenges you may be facing. We find long lasting relief and solutions that come from understanding the body, and the relationship between the body and the psyche. Together we start the rebuilding process and find ways you can reclaim a truly fulfilling life as a musician.
