Performance Anxiety

We work with performing artists to help them reduce the stress of auditions.  It is normal to experience difficulty with stress, time management, and motivation in preparing for these big moments.   Further, it is difficult to manage or ‘ignore’ the stress that comes along with performing on command.  Intentional practice and monitoring our inner experience during practice can help performers thrive in situations where the pressure is on.

We teach performers to recognize the physiology of stress and the negative worry thoughts that get in the way of their best performance. Often times, we are our worst critics and we would not allow others to speak to us the way we speak to ourselves.  Using an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioral techniques and biofeedback we can help performers bring their best when it counts.
